Abu Dhabi: Stressing that India has the potential to win and enter the knockouts, football coach Stephen Constantine Friday said the team needs to get its act together ahead of the clash with Baharain in the AFC Asian Cup.

India went down to hosts United Arab Emirates 0-2 in their second group stage match after they had defeated Thailand in their opening game.

"We have to pick ourselves up and get ready for the next game. We need to aim for a win and get something from that game. Hopefully, we can get the result to qualify," Constantine said.

India face Bahrain on Monday in their final group stage match and a victory will ensure the Blue Tigers a spot in the Round of 16.

Talismanic striker Sunil Chhetri also echoed Constantine's words.

"We are still in the running. We are ready to face Bahrain. As a team, we are united. We are ready to fight. That's our game plan against Bahrain," Chhetri said.

Against UAE, the Indians missed several opportunities, hitting the bar twice and eventually going down 0-2.

Referring to the last match, Constantine explained: "I said to the boys you did not lose this game. You have shown what you are capable of. Even they (UAE players) were surprised and did not believe that we were this good."

"We are only going to get better with these kind of games. The team has an average age of 25. The players will get only better from here. We had four clear chances to score but UAE scored with the half chance they had," he said.

Skipper Chhetri added: "It was a tight game. If we could have taken our chances it could have been different. UAE are a good side, and they converted their chances."
