Stimac was confident of a good campaign in the third edition of the event in Odisha, especially after their victory at the tri-nation tournament in Imphal earlier this year. The Indian Team will face Mongolia, Vanuatu and Lebanon. Stimac stated at the pre-match press.

“We’re expecting to win the tournament, and that’s why were here. We’ll do everything possible to make that happen,”

Stimac said that their opponents are good and competitive even though they’re not as tough as the ones in the Asian Cup. He added,

“Each game will be a challenge for us. We’ve had enough time for preparation. Our players are here to prove that they deserve their place in the National Team,”

India is anticipated to play nine matches in the two tournaments in June, which Stimac believes will provide the Indian team some valuable exposure and higher-level competition. Playing in their homeland is a big advantage as Igor hopes to see a lot of supporters. The team’s experience in Manipur, surrounded by fans gave them the support to give good results.

Stimac said his squad will be anticipating a lot of support from the football supporters of Odisha, which has given his team “fantastic” training facilities, inspired by the amazing backing the national team received in Manipur.
