Good footballing coming from our able Flying Eagle, job well done, next to be executed is Saudi Arabia, although the game is just formality, but pride will be at stake. Half strength team will be used by both team for the game.

We should carry on scoring goals as long as opportunity is there to score, we should score as we did in the first two matches. We came a long way to build the team and the players have been together for a long time.
