Nepal Coach Sunil Shrestha:
We both have seen each other's games. Boys have gained confidence after playing three matches in the tournament.
India is a tough opponent in the history of Nepalese football. We haven't won against India in U-16 age group. They are the only team whom we haven't defeated in South Asia. We have already lost two times against India. They are the toughest among the six participating teams. Players' morale has enhanced with every match played. We want to win against India at any cost. This is a good chance to create history. We are looking forward to winning tomorrow against India."
He also said that they would not repeat the mistakes committed in group stage matches.
"We prioritized short passes in the previous match against India but we couldn't succeed but tomorrow we hope to succeed in playing short passes as boys have already gained confidence after playing three matches. There will be some changes in the starting line up tomorrow. We conceded 2 silly goals against Bangladesh in semi finals yesterday. We will not repeat same mistakes tomorrow. We will make a compact defense line and focus on team setting. We will play attacking game tomorrow. We will play All attack and all defense."
India U15 coach Bibiano Fernandes:
"It is always difficult to beat a team two times in a row. We had a difficult time in beating Nepal in group stage match. It will be very very difficult tomorrow putting in consideration that Nepal is a host team. But boys are ready. We are in a good mood. We will give everything to win the match tomorrow.
The Indian coach is in no mood to focus on history as he said, "We will not concentrate our attention towards Nepal U16 hasn’t beat us before. We will just try to approach the match and try to win it."
"We have got a good defense. They are disciplined through out the tournament and we hope to continue that. If we win, it will be a great boost for us ahead of AFC U16 Qualifiers."
India U15 likely Playing XI: Lalbiakhlua Jongte, Thoiba Singh, Harpreet Singh, Shabas Ahamad, Gurkirat Singh, Vikram Pratap, Ravi Bahadur Rana, Bekey Oram, Sailo, Aenam Jyrwa, Rickey John
