The Indian football team is set to take on Nepal in the SAFF U-17 Championship final here on the 14th of September,  Wednesday.

The Indian team sounded confident on the eve of the match.

"We started the tournament well. But it was a nervy start nonetheless. This is the first tournament that the boys are playing for the country, and that can always give you a few jitters," said head coach Bibiano



Fernandes.

"The result against Nepal was a wake-up call for us. The boys reacted extremely well after the setback. We have identified and worked on our weaknesses. I need to credit the boys for taking up this challenge," he added.

India had started their campaign with a victory against Bhutan but suffered a 1-3 defeat against Nepal in their second group stage game before turning their fortunes around against Bangladesh with a 2-1 victory in the semifinal.
