Here are a few quotes:
• It’s my first visit to India.
• I’m happy to be here and to learn more about this country.
• I have heard so much about India and I’m really looking forward to play here.
• We received the warm and hearty welcome we expected here in India.
• We want to win the match.
• We want to show what top European football is all about!
• We all know Baichung Bhutia! Baichung has been part of many World XI teams and we have seen him playing.
• We are very honoured to play in Baichung’s farewell match.
• Indian football is not available in Germany. We only get to see cricket from India.
