Yangon:

India football coach Wim Koevermans has praised his team for a brilliant performance and pointed out that they could have scored more goals after beating Guam 4-0 at the Yangon Training Centre in the AFC Challenge Cup qualifiers here Monday.

This was India's second win in as many games after they pipped Chinese Taipei 2-1 in the opening match of the qualifying tournament.

"We had aimed for three points and we have achieved it," Koevermans said at the post-match conference.

"We could have scored more goals but it was Guam who had the first chance of the match when one of their shots hit the post and went out," he added. "That was a wake-up call for us."

"But after that, we took control and there was hardly any threat from our opponents. If you look back at the chances which we created, we could have scored more than 10 goals. But that's football," he maintained.

Referring to a question whether India can beat Myanmar, Koevermans quipped: "We are here to win. I feel every team is here to win too. It will be an interesting match for sure. But we have beaten higher-ranked teams in the recent past and we take inspiration from it."

"We gave away the ball a bit too easily at times," he maintained referring to the Guam match. "There was pressure on the players as this was a must-win match for us. We had our chances but just couldn't score," he reiterated.
