It is important for India not to understannd that defending deep is not their strength, it is about playing with the ball on the ground. We are not physically better than teams, we are technically better and Nicolai Adam has too find a way to work around that without running the kids to the ground.

...

You cannot underestimate what this goal will do to the Indian National team. Another 3-2 loss would have been heartbreaking for kids aged 15 and 16, and this goal allows them to play for qualification.
