New Delhi: India's interim football coach Armando Colaco has a tough task at hand as the national team faces the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the first round of World Cup qualifiers in July.
He says it will be a challenge to get past the UAE, whose only World Cup appearance was way back in 1990 in the US. India, however, did beat the UAE 1-0 at Bangalore in 2001 for the 2002 World Cup qualifying campaign under Sukhwinder Singh.
"It will be a tough game for the team. Don't expect miracles from me overnight. We need time to build the team," Colaco told IANS from Goa.
