New Delhi:

The Indian football team may be ranked 130th in the world but the new coach Bob Houghton certainly intends to change things a bit.Houghton believes that it is unfair for people to ask about the team's future plans because he feels that it puts unwarranted pressure on the team to perform.Houghton, India's sixth foreign coach has already put some pressure on his team by comparing it with the Australian team of 1998. The Australian team of course missed out on a place in the France 98 losing in the play-offs to Iran.Houghton has also stated his intention to interact on a personal level with some of the domestic club coaches in India, since most of his team members spend the majority of their time them. His first outing in Canada later this month will no doubt give him the opportunity to get a first hand view of his players in action.
