GOA: India national team coach Stephen Constantine has credited his charges following the 2-2 draw against Myanmar at Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Goa on Tuesday.
India, who already qualified for the AFC Asian Cup finals, came from behind twice through skipper Sunil Chhetri and Jeje Lalpekhlua to cancel out Yan Naing Oo and Kyaw Ko Ko’s goals in their penultimate Group A fixture of the 2019 AFC Asian Cup qualification.

Although the British tactician had been hoping for all three points, he had no complaints about the outcome.
“I am happy with the boys. We created enough chances to win the game but couldn’t score. I think young players are getting better and better with time. The future looks good for this team but we need to work harder.”
“The players accounted for themselves well despite conceding very early, Myanmar were equally good. This game gives us an impression of how the boys can stand the pressure. Over the whole game‚ I can say that it is a fair result because both teams had opportunities.” Constantine concluded.
