There were a few bright spots in an otherwise dull Indian performance on Tuesday, such as goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu stretching to the max to keep out a long ranger from hitting the net. Ashique Kuruniyan coming narrowly close to an equaliser in the first half after a spirited charge, going for a left-footed strike from inside the box that went just wide of the goal post.

“I’ve watched their first match against Singapore and they (Vietnam) are a very disciplined side. They have also had enough time after the first game for recovery, while we need to see how many of our boys will be available and fit to play,” said Stimac. Hinting that there may be significant changes to the side, he said, “A few of our players are back and fresh now, so we will make sure we have enough strength and speed on the pitch for Vietnam.”
