New Delhi: Indian football coach Savio Medeira was neither confidence personified nor short on hope on the eve of the SAFF Championship but said failing to defend the title would not be a letdown as the team did not get "enough time to prepare".
"No, I don't think so. We could not prepare well enough," the Goan said when asked if anything less than defending the title would be a disappointment.
"But I don't think we cannot win the tournament. We can, the boys are giving their best. It will depend a lot on the given day, the opposition. If we don't perform on the given day, I don't think it's going to be easy," Medeira said.
