"India is somewhere between a sleeping giant and a rising competitor", the Swiss said.

India defeated Kenya 2-0 in the final of the four-nation 2018 Intercontinental Cup held at the Mumbai Football Arena on Sunday evening.

"There will definitely be two games sometime in December, before the Asian Cup". India had previously blanked Kenya 3-0 in the league game and will look to do an encore of their performance.

With a goal and three assists, Sarpreet Singh was the standout, continuing a strong start to a year where he has become the most promising New Zealand player to emerge since Thomas in 2014.

Chhetri, who thanked the crowd on turning out in numbers after he had posted a video message last week on Twitter seeking fan support at India matches, played down comparisons with Messi. "We were always going to change the team", he told reporters later, as he emphasised the need for patience. All three should be on new Wellington Phoenix coach Mark Rudan's call list, and signing there - or elsewhere - will help them stake their global claims.

Schmid introduced four new players too, but it's important to highlight a key difference here.

Sunil Chhetri, the man of the moment is on a rampaging run to match the world's best with his astonishing pedigree of scoring goals.

But the Stephen Constantine coached team can not take Kenya lightly as they have defeated New Zealand 2-1 and blanked Chinese Taipei 4-0 last night. This itself will send a wave of football resonants across the country.

Sunil is second to Cristiano Ronaldo of Portugal who has a whopping 81 goals to his name.

The 33-year-old Chhetri's double strike capped a brilliant tournament which saw him score eight out of India's 11 goals and put him on par with Argentine superstar Messi with 64 strikes for the country to be the joint second highest worldwide goal scorer among active players. It was a reality check that showed there is still plenty of work to be done as the Blue Tigers prepare for the 2019 Asian Cup in the UAE where they can be certain their Group A opponents - UAE, Thailand and Bahrain - will all be at full strength.
