Football had evolved, tactics revolutionized, and having been exposed to world-class leagues on television, the Indian football fan had become more educated and impatient. Out of their 370-odd passes per 90 minutes, India attempted nine key passes. The biggest change in this tactic came during the Asia Cup, when the team pressed from the front and reaped rewards. Against Bahrain in the last group game of the Asia Cup, India attempted 14 counter-attacks and none of them ended with a shot. At the Asia Cup, India attempted nine shots per game, with three on target.
