China entered the Asian Cup with one win in seven games, including draws against Palestine, India, and Bahrain. It didn't look much better at the start...

India on right track, but mind the potholes

Sunil Chhetri: India's Batman without a Robin
Sunil Chhetri: India's Batman without a Robin.

Let's be honest, this Indian team has flaws.

The numbers are impressive but they don't tell the entire story. India have huffed, puffed, got the 'job done', but there are loopholes. Loopholes that, if not addressed, could fade the shining light. Based on the two Asian Cup qualifiers, both 1-0 wins, here are a few concerns Constantine would need to address before India take the pitch next against Macau on September 5.

The midfield

India's biggest weakness lies in midfield. In both games - Myanmar and...

While Chhetri scores winners, Gurpreet continues to lead India from the back

While Chhetri scored the winner, Gurpreet Singh Sandhu made several crucial saves in India's 1-0 win over Kyrgyzstan.
While Chhetri scored the winner, Gurpreet Singh Sandhu made several crucial saves in India's 1-0 win over Kyrgyzstan.

Sunil Chhetri was named Man of the Match against Kyrgyzstan for his winning goal in India's Asian Cup qualifier in Bengaluru on Tuesday night but an alternative candidate could have been goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, whose role was just as important.

A series of saves in India's 1-0 win was only the latest of Sandhu's strong international performances, a run that has coincided with India's rise up the rankings of world football to 100. Sandhu has started almost all the matches, conceding two goals...
