Igor Stimac believes in playing fearless football which got overwhelmed by the physically superior team Oman, but the intention was clear every player on the pitch was trying to prove something. However, India needs to be more precise with their passes and pressing game otherwise UAE will dominate the game. Youngsters like Jeakson and Suresh fell short as they let the nerves get better of them. So India needs to calm themselves and play well if they want to win against UAE.

UAE is not in a good form, out of the last five matches they have played in the past two years UAE has managed only one victory against Tajikistan back in Nov 2020. However, we cannot take them for granted as they are one of the best teams in Asian Football.
