During the pre-tournament interview with, Goalkeeper Prabshukhan Singh Gill said,” “We have prepared well for this tournament, and have recently won the OFC youth Development tournament. That was a good boost for us. We would like to carry on the momentum in the Championship,”

The spirits in the camp are quite good as they face their first test on Monday, the coach was looking forward to the test, “A good showing in Nepal will mean we can shift our focus towards the AFC qualifiers, which will be another step up and most difficult as compared to all the other tournaments. We hope to continue the momentum and if we do so, it will give us great confidence.”

India has previously been runner-ups in the 2015 editions of the tournament that had seen the rise of the likes of Anirudh Thapa and Daniel Lalhlimpuia. This edition too has a few well known names, most notable of which is the defender Narender Gahlot who made his national team debut and scored too under coach Igor Stimac in the Hero Intercontinental Cup and Jeakson Singh who was the first goal scorer for India in a FIFA world cup when he scored in the U-17 World Cup in 2017 to name a few.

Assistant coach Mahesh Gawli insisted that apart from this, the championship will also provide a good platform for the team to test themselves, and help them to prepare well for AFC U-19 Championship qualifiers.
