Goalless draw against Qatar is not my best performance: Gurpreet Singh

DOHA: India goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu says the memorable goalless draw against Asian champions Qatar, in the FIFA World Cup qualifier in September 2019, is not his greatest performance till date.
According to him, he has performed his best, surprisingly, in a 0-4 loss to Iran in a 2018 World Cup qualifier at a packed Azadi Stadium in Tehran, and during a match against China in China.
“Almost everyone I speak to always makes me remember about the Qatar match.
But if you ask me, that isn’t my best performance so far. I understand that in the Qatar match, we got a result — and hence, it will always stay a highlight,” Gurpreet told the All India Football Federation.
The country’s top custodian added, “Rather, I will always pick two other matches ahead of my performance against Qatar. The away match against Iran in the World Cup Russia 2018 Qualifiers in 2016 in front of a packed Azadi Stadium in Tehran, will always remain on top of my list.
“Yeah, we lost 0-4, but I feel there was much more pressure in Tehran, than in Doha.
