By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, Aug 8: India U-16 football team coach Bibiano Fernandes highlighted his players� self belief and ability to stage a comeback, after rounding off their campaign in the WAFF Championship in Amman, Jordan with a 3-0 rout of Yemen.

The tournament also included a historic 1-0 win over Iraq, the country�s first-ever against the current U-16 Asian champions.

�We have now learnt how to come back and win games especially after a defeat. We have been continuously believing in ourselves,� Fernandes said after India finished with nine points from four matches in the tournament.

�We had been conceding late goals in our previous matches in China, Thailand and Malaysia. The team was pushing hard for a winner in the dying stages but on this tour, we converted our chances leaving us in a much more comfortable position to defend and keep clean sheets,� the coach added. � PTI
