KOLKATA: Indian football team head coach Igor Stimac has expressed satisfaction with the national side's performance in an exhibition match against IFA XI here on Monday evening, saying he was looking forward to having such games on a regular basis to improve the performance of the national side ahead of the two international friendlies against Nepal in September.

The men's team's preparatory camp had kicked off in Kolkata on Sunday for the friendlies against Nepal, with 23 of the shortlisted players reporting for duty. Those competing in the AFC Cup — currently underway in Maldives — for their respective clubs will join the camp once the tournament is over. India XI rode on a second-half strike from Akash Mishra to win by a solitary goal. IANS
