Chhetri has added “It may sound cliché but we need to prove a point. We can’t take the foot off the pedal and need to continue our winning streak,”
Central-defender Sandesh Jhingan also hailed Myanmar.
They are a very hard working side who run a lot. In addition, their ball control is quite exemplary. They have a number of very good players in the middle and their No. 10 is a special one. It’s not going to be an easy match,” Jhingan said.
“But we want to win. There isn’t any place for any complacency just because we have already qualified. We need to continue the winning streak and will keep doing what we have been doing to get the result we want.”

Goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, the sole Indian player to have played in the UEFA Europa League, said Myanmar were a very talented and technical side.
“They are strong unit with very talented and technically sound players who can create havoc with the ball. There will always be a tendency for all to underestimate them but we won’t,” he said.
Defender Pritam Kotal said India will approach the match the same way they have done in the last four matches.
The big blow for India is as the star striker Balwant Singh is missing the match due to Ankle Injury during the Pre-season for ISL in Spain. Manvir Singh is recalled as the replacement for Balwant. The FC Goa striker has been in rich vein of form during the pre-season with his most latest goal coming against Kolkata’s East Bengal.
India are already without the services of Nikhil Poojary, who has been ruled out for at least four months following an ACL injury and Rowllin Borges, who has a knock in his knee and is expected to be out of NorthEast United’s opening ISL game against Jamshedpur FC on October 18.

The entire country will get to see their technicalities when we meet them. There is no shame in admitting that they dominated us when we played in Yangon. But we were resilient. Also don’t forget that they came back from 0-2 down to make it 2-2 against Kyrgyz Republic. That speaks of their strength,” the striker said.
