India needs to guard against complacency

Male: More than its opponent, defending champion India needs to guard against complacency when it locks horns with underdog Bhutan in the semifinals of the SAFF Championship here on Wednesday.

India coach Bob Houghton was quite unhappy after the team was made to play its first three games over five days. However, there should not be any problems as the team got enough time to recharge its batteries after playing its last match on Friday.

On paper, Bhutan should not be a major worry for the Indian team, even though the minnow shocked Afghanistan 3-1 to reach its first semifinal in the regional football event. — PTI
