Expressing his pleasure, Mr. Toal who was in charge of the Indian U-19 Team for the recently concluded Weifang Cup said: “It gives me immense pleasure to work with the boys of different age-groups. With so much talent around, it’s a big challenge for me.”
Mr. Toal lauded the U-19 boys for the splendid show in the Weifang Cup. “We finished fourth among eight teams. FC Benfica had 11 Portuguese National Team Players in their ranks while FC Adelaide had 5 U-19 players who represented Australia in the World Cup,” he added. “The FC Shangdong FC team with whom we drew 2-2 also had eight Chinese U-19 Players in their ranks.”
“It was a good experience for the boys and this will help them immensely in the U-19 AFC Qualifiers. India have been drawn in Group C and play their first match against Turkmenistan on October 31.
