Last Thursday, January 10, Thailand and Bahrain ended an AFC Asian Cup with a loss at Bahrain’s side held at Rashid Al-Maktoum Stadium. Bahrain’s coach Soukup spoke about his football team’s need to score a victory against India tomorrow, January 15, 2018. In spite of India’s coach Stephen Constantine’s threats, Soukup’s confidence refuses to flail ahead of the upcoming match.
“We have as much information about India as other coaches have information on us. We know the strong points and weak points of India. I don’t want to disclose much here. “We have seen many of their games. We know how they play. We also know the history of the coach, who is managing India for the second time”
Since the loss against Thailand, the Czech coach expressed his thoughts on the importance of his team to take risks. Performing exceptionally tomorrow against India is a must for the team to place high in the ranks.
“Against Thailand, if you pick up the stats, we were stronger in every department of the field barring the box. Inside the box, Thailand was stronger. We want to be stronger inside the box tomorrow,” Soukup adds.
