Scoring a point against the US at the Kalinga Stadium here will also be a big achievement for the Indian team.

He is fully aware that he may have to bear the brunt for his laxity against India as Brazil is also in the group. In the other matches of the day, Morocco will face Brazil while Chile will take on New Zealand. Whereas the German team will play Nigeria in Group B.

The Indian team has toured Italy, Norway and Spain before the tournament, although it has not played against strong teams from Europe and South America.
