|The 4 head coaches, LtoR, Dvoryankov (Dordoi), Booth (PPCFC), Shrestha (Nepal), Pradhan (Yeedzin)|
David Booth (PPCFC);"At this level we expect every team to be a difficult proposition. We will prepare for each game separately, but the 1st game is the most important, to start off with a good result. We are expecting a tough 1st game and we hope we are in good shape and can put in a good performance. We have selected Obadin and Frimpong as our foreign players and our squad has eight international players, past and present."
Sergey Dvoryankov (Dordoi); "The 1st match is very important for us. We will play hard to win. We have played Nepal before but we don't look back, we have new players and we look only forwards. We hope to go to AFC Cup next year, this is our hope and plan, but we don't know. We have 2 foreign players, Tagoe from Ghana and Jean Carlos from Brazil. We also have two naturalized foreigners, Tetteh from Ghana and Koum from Cameroon, who are now Kyrgyz nationals."
Bikash Pradhan (Yeedzin); "It will be very difficult for us playing at 1.30pm because of the altitude and climate change. We play some games in minus degrees, so this is a drawback we face. It's a good opportunity to play against good teams. We have travelled far, have prepared well and we will give a good fight. The problem is the weather. We have two foreign players from India and three national team players."
Birat Shrestha (Nepal); "Dordoi are very strong, we play them 3 times and lose 3 times. We played a competition before we arrived and we have 3-4 injuries and so many problems. The first match is very important, and we are not going to lose. We will play for a share of the points. We have no foreign players in our team."
