Muscat, Oman, Nov 19: India's talismanic striker Sunil Chhetri dismissed talks about India gunning for a revenge when they challenge the Gulf Nation at the Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex here on Tuesday.
In September this year Oman left it late to sweep the tie against the Blue Tigers in Guwahati during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 qualifiers.
“We won’t think about revenge or anything closer to that, absolutely not. At the end of the day, the points matter. It’s not a derby as they are not our neighbours," Chhetri stated on the sidelines of the first training session here.
The two countries have played eight matches against each other from which Oman have won six times whereas the other two matches ended in a draw. In the first leg, Chhetri scored India's only goal which could have earned the Blue Tigers their first win against the Gulf Nation but Al Mandhar scored back-to-back goals to dent India's dream. The match is scheduled to kick-off at 8.30pm. (UNI)
