A few days prior to India’s World Cup Qualifier clash against Iran, Indian goalkeeper , Subrata Pal stressed that India will stay all “focused” and play with “passion”. The match is set to kick-off at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium on September 8,2015.

We will give our hundred percent on the field says Subrata Pal

“We will play as a Team. Football is all about attacking as a Team and it’s also all about defending as a Team,”, he stated while speaking during a Media Interaction prior to Team India practice on Saturday (September 5,2015) evening.

“In Football anything is possible and any Team possess the power to upset their opponents on any given day,” Subrata Pal maintained.

“Having said that we stay fully aware of Iran’s potential, their strength and their prowess,” he added. “But I reiterate, in Football it’s all about that particular day. Every Team needs to do their job and if you can do it, you can dream. We can guarantee our fans that we will play and give our hundred percent on the pitch. We will fight for every inch and for every ball,” Subrata Pal who captained India in the last International Friendly against Nepal on August 31, said.

Meanwhile, the Indian National team had double practice sessions on the day, sweating it out both in the morning and evening at the Stadium. India are yet to open their account in the World Cup Qualifiers after successive defeats to Oman and Guam respectively.

“We are taking one match at a time. Right now, we are focusing on the Iran match. Commenting about the tally of points and our position in the Group isn’t possible at the moment. But I reiterate, we respect Iran as a Team. They are special. They have been regular qualifiers to the World Cup and their quality speaks about themselves. But we would be wearing the Indian jersey and representing 1.24 billion people. That itself is a motivation for all,” he said on behalf of the entire squad.

For the record, Iran, the top most Team in Asia stand at 40 in the FIFA ladder while India are currently ranked 155.

Reflecting on the preparation, Subrata Pal said:

“We played well against Oman and we have improved a lot since that performance. Right now we have a very talented crop of Players in the National setup. But one needs to patient.”

Subrata Pal also made a special mention of his Goalkeeping Coach Rogerio Ramos and Sports Scientist Danny Deigan and their “value addition to Indian Football.”

“(Rogerio) Ramos is one of the best Goalkeeping Coaches that I have ever had in my career. He is technically very sound and I am lucky to him. I wish I was lucky enough to have him when I was a budding Footballer. He is amazing,” Subrata Pal stated.

“At the same time, Danny Deigan is also an important addition to the Indian contingent. Sports Science is visible in all of our training sessions and the value addition has been immense,” Paul stressed.

“Both Danny and Ramos are also working with the U-19 National Team as well and that gives us a wonderful chance to the lads to learn from the very best in the business.” Pal pronounced.

The lanky Goalkeeper stayed confident that “Bengaluru would rise to the occasion.”

“Bengaluru is always a lively City to play in. It’s a sports oriented City. We expect the fans to come in numbers, support us and Back the Blue.”

“The chants are just amazing and make us motivated and feel special.”
