Bahrain and India set for must-win match


BAHRAIN will be looking to move back on track tonight when they face off with India in a crunch 2011 AFC Asian Cup Group 'C' encounter at the Al Sadd Stadium.

The match, which kicks off at 7.15pm, will be the first-ever clash between the two teams in the history of the championship.Both teams will head into this game needing victory to revive their chances of booking a berth in the quarter-finals.

The Bahrainis, under coach Salman Sharida, bowed to South Korea 1-2 while India suffered a heavy 0-4 defeat to Australia in their openers.Australia and South Korea, who share the lead in this four-team group, clash earlier today at 4.15pm with the winners securing a place in the last eight.Sharida plans not to read too much into India's heavy defeat in their opening match ahead of the crunch meeting between the two sides. Sharida warned his players not to take their opponents lightly if they were to maintain hopes of a place in the last eight.

"They are organised and disciplined. They are very good on the counter-attack and their goalkeeper was outstanding against Australia," said Sharida at a post-match Press conference yesterday."They played well in that match. They were able to limit the danger of the Australians in the second-half."Like the Indians, Bahrain suffered an opening game defeat against South Korea."The result against Korea Republic did not match our expectations and our ambitions," added the former Pakistan head coach.

"The goals we conceded were due to mistakes we our focus now is on preparing the team psychologically to play India. Some teams who won the first match have lost the second - this is football.""We are only focused on winning against India and when we are guaranteed a win we will think about how many goals we can get," said Sharida.

Some good news for Bahrain though is the potential return of captain Salman Isa, with the winger well on the road to recovery from a leg injury.The game against the Koreans came too soon for the 33-year-old but Sharida is feeling more confident that he could play some part against India.Meanwhile, Bahrain keeper Mahmood Mansoor is determined to repay Sharida's faith in him after the 30-year-old made his international debut against South Korea.

"I am happy to have played and each player of Bahrain is proud to represent his country," he said. "My coach has put a lot of faith in me and I hope I can repay him. The match against Korea was very difficult but we have the motivation as players to play our best against India."
