"We'll need to work on set-pieces, combinations and choose the best eleven for the game".
"I expected to win (against Qatar)".
Indian midfielder Nikhil Poojary hailed the result in Doha as one of the best in the country's history. "It was a great night for Indian football".
"We want to get three points".
"Being favourite in a game is nothing". We need to make sure we play to our strengths and make fewer mistakes. In the game against India, Bangladesh went ahead through a strike from Ashish Bhadra in the 15th minute before Bikash Panji, who also struck against Bangladesh in Dhaka, equalised in the 36th minute.
And, with a suspect Bangladesh defence being his next hurdle, Samad has the chance to run rings around the neighbours and pave the way for India's first win in the FIFA World Cup 2022 Qualifiers. All of them played after a long time and that too against a team like Qatar. It was a great team effort from everyone involved. "We believed we could beat them over two legs because of the work we had done [over] the previous 12 months". We have to create chances and try to score.
"India won't need a Sunil Chhetri to make a difference".
The 35-year-old continues to be India's talisman.
Sitting beside him, Stimac was also quizzed about Chhetri and the 52-year-old, who was part of the Croatian team that finished third in the 1998 World Cup and helped them qualify for the 2014 World Cup, stated the talismanic marksman is more important than him.
Bangladesh sit bottom of Group E following defeats to Afghanistan and Qatar. They'll, on the assorted hand, be with out the companies and products of huge title centre-again Sandesh Jhingan, who picked up an hurt in a suited match last week. "We have learned that we can compete with higher-ranked opposition but if you give those teams opportunities, they will take them".
He now divides his time between England and South Asia, living away from his wife and four children for up to six or eight weeks at a time. "I will be very happy then we will come to know about someone like Udanta (Singh), Ashique (Kuruniyan), (Abdul) Sahal, Manvir or Balwant".
"Sometime he has defied what I think or what you think. It's about improving ourselves on day to day", Stimac concluded.
"We had a great game against Qatar (on September 10). It was a hard choice to take", Stimac stated. That is the reason we have done so well against Qatar. My boys made sprints till the very last minute. "They have come here to win the match", Stimac added.
Stimac, who won a World Cup bronze medal with Croatia in 1998, issued a rallying cry to the inhabitants of India's "City of Joy".
"We have heard a lot about the passion for football in Kolkata".
"I'm really excited to see the match".
For Day, ambitions are more circumspect. Such a mixture of youth and experience has given us a chance to be what we are.
"I am going to break the Indian hearts tomorrow".
Constantine expects the match to be tighter than most Indians expect. They have got other good players who play at a good level in India. I don't think it was a dream show.
