Osho stated that it was a tactical decision to give all his players the opportunity to feature at the tournament.

“We observed that we didn’t play well and we made some mistakes especially in the first half but we came back stronger in the second half but we couldn’t overturn the result.

“Remember, this is a pre-season tournament and we have already qualified for the semi final. So, it was a match to determine who tops the group.
