India should be cautious against UAE: Atanu

Former Indian international believes the men in blues should keep their feet on the ground after winning big against Thailand.

India should keep their focus for the rest of the tournament.

At this stage team India is sitting at the zenith position of  Group A in 2019 Asian cup, after they won with flying colours against Thiland in their opening match at Al Nahyan stadium, Abu Dhabi.

Team India will face UAE in their next encounter who drew their first match against Bahrain and will be ready to bounce back against India to collect the all three points.

Despite team India’s brilliant performance against Thiland, Atanu Bhattacharya warned the Men in Blue not to throw caution to the wind  against the UAE side.

Atanu voiced: “In spite of winning big, I think we should not throw caution in the air against UAE. We should look to hit them on the counter. We did counter well in the second half against Thailand. The wingers and strikers were fast enough and did not allow Thailand to organise their defence during the counters,”
