“We are very strong in our organization. That is our strongest point. We have good concentration and it is difficult to score against us. Of course, India’s offensive quality can be different. After Mexico, we work a lot on set pieces. In football, the most difficult part is the offensive process. It is what we need time to work more and more.” concluded Norton.

India lost to USA in their tournament opener before Monday's heartbreak against Colombia and two defeats from the first two games have hugely dimmed the hosts' chances of knockout round progression.

India will take on Ghana in their final group game on October 12.
