“The boys came after months together and showed character, and we were all happy to get the first win tonight.”

Thapa further added,

“We had a good game, but now our task is to recover well, focus, and look at the plus points and try to improve on them. For sure, we will try to do our best.”

The Indian National Team last played six months ago in Ho Chi Minh City, where they drew with Singapore, and were handed a defeat by Vietnam.

“It’s always a moment of pride to don the National Team jersey and play for India, but the more important thing is that we need to get more matches at every available opportunity.”

Thapa added,

“Playing against good teams helps us not only raise our level of performance but also to adapt to different pressure situations that will eventually make us a better, more prepared team.”

He further added,

“It’s important that we use the coming International windows as well to get as many matches as we can, and help the coaches frame the right team for the future.”

The Hero Tri-Nation International Football Tournament is halfway through for the Blue Tigers. The national football team has another match against the Kyrgyz Republic coming up on March 28, 2023.
