The team must execute the handsome things they learnt during training. Try to be intelligent and concentrate. It was very important for us to score a goal during this phase of the game. The Colombians favoured the 4-2-3-1 formation against Ghana and considering India's defensive tactics, they will be looking to switch to a more aggressive 4-3-3 with Leandro Campaz dictating play from the left flank.
