We created many chances against Nepal: Constantine
Held to a goalless draw by lower-ranked Nepal, India football coach Stephen Constantine rued the missed chances in the international friendly match here and said it was a learning process for his team.
A dominating 156th-ranked home side was held to a goalless draw by Nepal, ranked 184, in an international friendly at the Balewadi Stadium here last night.
“It’s a learning process, we created many <g data-gr-id="21">chances</g> but we did not score. It is as simple as that. We have learned a great deal from the match and that is what International Friendlies are for...you get to see who plays and who does not,” said Constantine at the post-match press
Constantine employed as many as five <g data-gr-id="18">substitutions</g> but the deadlock could not be broken.
“I had expected this kind of game against Nepal and we lost momentum in the second half. We tried different players in different positions, and that is another advantage of these Friendly games,”
