I called him (Debjit Majumder) up in our squad and he failed to show up. End of story. He is not interested even though I called him into the India game.feedback

Stephen Constantine has most recently been quoted in an article called Stephen Constantine: ISL, I-League running parallely is best for India. Stephen Constantine said, “There is no time for these guys to even train properly as they play and then have to travel for the next match. By spreading the season to a longer period, it will allow the coaches to impart their knowledge to the players. For sure, the Indian players will benefit from some of the good foreign coaches. This is really what I would have wanted from the beginning.”. Stephen Constantine has been quoted a grand total of 37 times in 13 articles.

Stephen Constantine quotes

Any coach makes substitutions to try and change the game and our substitutions were brilliant on the field today. We put (Sunil) Chhetri more towards the left and that worked out well for us. We have to get nine points in this group in away matches. Having secured three points away gives us a lot more confidence to move forward.feedback

If I didn't think we could beat them, I wouldn't beat them. We can beat anyone on our day. We have to do our work. We have to hope Myanmar has a bad day and we have a good one to win. We have planned for about 10 days for this game.feedback

I believe we have a chance to qualify and I like to think Myanmar has the same. I'm not sure about Kyrgyzstan or Macau. It's the first game of the competition, it's an away game and we didn't come here to lose. We have big respect for Myanmar we come here to play. They've shown big improvement over the last few years. But we come here to play.feedback

We'll prepare like we have for the last two days. We've been working hard. We understand the game will be very tough. Myanmar has a very good team, very good situation here, on the field and I think Myanmar are the favourites for this game.feedback

Myanmar are definitely the favourites. Playing at home is always an advantage for any team. They have been together for some time and the familiarity with each other is so much beneficial when you take the field. They certainly have the advantage.feedback

Considering the last 18 months, we are in a good place at the moment. Nothing is too serious and the players are ready.feedback

They work very hard and love to press. When you combine with the two with the ability they have and add the crowd and atmosphere to it, the combination is just deadly.feedback

At the end of day, it's a win and I am very happy for the boys and all who have been involved in the process. But there is no place to go over the moon. We have a sterner test next week, an acid test in fact.feedback

But the important thing is that we won the game and we do not have any injuries and next week we have a very difficult game against Myanmar.feedback

I agree that we were a bit casual in the beginning mainly because we haven't played together since September which is a long time.feedback

I think they all played very well. If I am the coach of Cambodia then I will be very happy only after two weeks.feedback

For us it is an important friendly. We have a difficult game after this with Myanmar. Coming to Cambodia means similar conditions, similar weather. I think it will be an interesting game for us. I wish Cambodia's new coach (Leonardo Vitorino) all the very best and good luck except not so much good luck tomorrow. We are taking this game very seriously and we are trying to give our best performance.feedback

Yes, we have two or three players who are 50-50 for this game.feedback

I did not come here to lose. I wish him all the best from the day after, but not tomorrow. All of them. Anyone can hurt you anytime. I have seen them play two or three times and they are a good team with good intensity.feedback

We haven't had access to the players, so when they go back to the clubs (between national camps), it is a different level and intensity is different. The boys know what is expected.feedback

The best example of continuity is Myanmar. They qualified for the U-20 World Cup 2015 on merit, average age on the senior national team is about 24 and have got a coach (former U-19 coach Gerd Ziese put in charge of Myanmar senior side) for the last eight years.feedback

My personal opinion is that the national coach should lead all the national teams, in (football) philosophy, selection of coaches, methodology. They (talented age group boys) are going to come to him. There is a side to the argument which asks what happens when a national coach gets sacked. Till 17 years, the boys are learning different systems anyway. The philosophy may change (when a new coach comes in), but continuity is essential.feedback

I need to thank the Western India Football Association headed by Mr. Praful Patel and Mr. Aditya Thackeray for their hospitality and help. I admire their passion for the National Team. We didn't face any obstacle during our training process.feedback

The character showed by the boys in the Camp has been exemplary. They worked very hard and we are looking forward to getting a result in both the matches. We are ready for the dual challenge.feedback
