Need to play cautiously against every team in Asian CT: Manpreet

Thursday, October 11, 2018

Muscat: The Asiad disappointment still "haunts" and Indian hockey captain Manpreet Singh Wednesday said they will have to approach and play each and every game cautiously in the Asian Champions Trophy.

The disappointment of losing to Malaysia in the semifinals of the 18th Asian Games in Indonesia still lingers. "It was a tournament we should have won and the disappointment of losing to Malaysia in the semifinal still haunts us," stated the midfielder, who was named the captain for the tournament here.

Over the past three weeks, the Indian men's hockey team has been put through the grind at the Kalinga Stadium - the venue for the prestigious men's World Cup in Bhubaneswar.

Doing well at the Asian Champions Trophy will be integral in their preparations for the mega event on home soil later this year.

Manpreet said, "At the 18th Asian Games Jakarta-Palembang, I think we were slightly overconfident that we are Asia's No.1 team and this complacency is what we need to avoid during the Hero Asian Champions Trophy Muscat 2018 if we want to retain the title.
