Nevertheless, the caravan rolls on and India will now shift their focus to the do-or-die encounter against their neighbours Bangladesh. The Blue Tigers will be keen to put the match against China behind them and perform well against Bangladesh.
India will have to go all out and fire on all cylinders because the stakes are very high. Igor Stimac’s side just cannot afford to make a single mistake because the consequences of it can be enormous.
The Bengal Tigers too find themselves in a similar position as India after failing to secure a point in their opening-day clash against Myanmar. Bangladesh were handed a narrow 1-0 defeat in the first game and will want to come back strongly against India.
