End of speculation, Tutu Basu has been re-elected President of Mohun Bagan

“We are the favorites in the group,” he said. There is nothing confidential about it. I am watching India in the main episode.

After arriving in Kolkata with the national team, national coach Igor Stimach was dissatisfied with the field. After qualifying for the AFC Asian Cup in Bellary, Karnataka, Sunil Chhetri set foot in Kolkata on Monday after training for the first leg. According to sources, Stimach did not like that field. So instead of practicing there on Tuesday, he left with the team at noon and went to the ground of the National Excellence Center of the All India Football Federation in Rajarhat. After practicing there for an hour and a half, he returned to the hotel.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Today, the national team will play a warm-up match against ITK-Mohun Bagan on Wednesday. Speaking at a virtual press conference on the same day, Stimach said, “There was an emphasis on increasing physical fitness in Bellary. The Indian team will fly to Doha on May 18 and 20 after playing its second practice match with the I-League star-studded team. The Indian team will return to Kolkata on May 30 after playing warm-up matches against Zambia (May 25) and Jordan (May 26).

ITK-Mohun Bagan’s Pritam Kotal, Liston Kolaso, Sandesh Jinghanera are important members of his team. “Eight Indian footballers are in ITK-Mohun Bagan,” said Stimach. Mumbai City FC’s three footballers Apuia, Bipin Singh and Rahul Veke will join the team on Wednesday. But after the AFC Champions League match on April 26, Bellary’s camp did not join, so why are they joining the national camp after so many days. However, the coach of the Indian football team did not speak loudly about it. Rahim Ali, Narendra Gahlout and Chinglensana Singh have been released due to injuries.

The qualifiers for next year’s AFC Asian Cup qualifiers will be held in Kolkata in June. In Group D, India (FIFA ranking 106) are followed by Afghanistan (150), Hong Kong (146) and Cambodia (181). Everyone lags behind India in the FIFA rankings. If they become the champion in the group, they will go to the main stage. Even so, owning one is still beyond the reach of the average person. 13 teams have already reached the main stage. This time the best six teams of the group and the best five runners-up are tested in the main round.

“We are the favorites in the group,” he said. There is nothing confidential about it. I am watching India in the main episode. Earlier, Kolkata could not win the World Cup qualifier against Bangladesh. So I want to celebrate with the spectators here after the last match by playing well this time. “He added,” I am looking for all the teams in the group. In particular, preparing for Afghanistan. Because their footballers are physically strong. Apart from that, they also have international experience. They play football a little differently. The Hong Kong team also has three Brazilian-born footballers. I am also keeping their information.

Stimach has confidence in national captain Sunil Chhetri. Sunil returned to the national team after the SAF Championship against Nepal in October. In the words of the Indian coach, “Sunil is the main force behind my team’s attack. Still in good rhythm. The preparation camp is also doing well. Earlier, Rahim Ali and Sunil had a good partnership. But this time there is no mercy.
