The happy feeling over a satisfying performance can go take a hike. Its time to deliver. With the Asian Champions Trophy in Kuantan, Malaysia less than a week away, chief coach Roelant Oltmans asserts that its time for talent to translate into performance and good performances to turn into great results. The time to be happy over a performance is over, its now time for results, he said, ahead of the national mens hockey teams departure for the October 20-30 tournament.With injuries costing the side some of its most seasoned and valuable personnel - SV Sunil, VR Raghunath and Manpreet Singh - a clutch of youngsters like Affan Yousuf and Lalit Upadhyay will be looking to make an impression. Everyone in the current group has to show they deserve their place, adds Oltmans, There are a couple of youngsters who will push them hard and are waiting for their chance. Its an ideal moment for them to show theyre ready to take the next step forward. Talent cant stay talent anymore. We need them to be top players who perform consistently.India, ranked sixth in the world, will be the obvious favourites in the tournament, which is into its fourth edition and is being staged after a gap of two years. The other four countries ?Pakistan, Korea, China and Malaysia ?who will feature in the event, find themselves close together in the rankings between the 11th and 14th positions.While conceding that hes yet to make his peace with the gaping void in the forward line in the absence of Sunil, known for his quick bursts of speed, ruled out on Friday due to a wrist injury, skipper PR Sreejesh says hes comforted by the return of defender Birendra Lakra into the side. Im really happy to have Lakra back but I think hell take time to adjust to the atmosphere. Its tough when youre returning to the national team in a major event after an injury, theres always added pressure. Injuries aside, we are in good shape and have been carrying this core group for last three years; so everyone in the side knows their particular role.While an eighth place finish at the Rio Games in August this year wasnt the ideal position the Indian team was hoping to find themselves in, what confounds Sreejesh is that the worry areas - conceding last-minute goals, missing opportunities in the circle, penalty corner conversions and defensive lapses - arent new or unknown. I dont know why its happening. We have been working really hard on these issues over the last few years but we continue to make similar mistakes. We will try to rectify them in this tournament.An Argentina vs Belgium Olympic final was possibly the least expected match-up, one that Oltmans attributes to a radical change in the international field of competition over the past few years, leading to a narrowing divide between the top three sides of the world and the rest of the countries. There are more teams now who are capable of beating the traditional top sides in the world. We are in that group of 8-9 teams who can compete in every tournament for the highest position, he says.India will play Pakistan for the first time in six months on October 23, the last instance that the two arch-rivals faced each other was also in Malaysia at the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup. India won that match 5-1. Observing that Pakistan are a talented and competitive side, Oltmans said, We face them in our third match so have some time to see them play and analyse based on their tactics and approach and come up with our best plan to beat them.Leaving for the tournament well ahead will offer the side enough scope to adjust to a slightly different time zone, weather conditions and also try out new combinations, Oltmans adds. One of the areas were putting a lot of effort in is the attacking actions, we have many circle penetrations, many goal-scoring opportunities but in the end we arent scoring enough.Being the top Asian hockey nation also brings with it the added pressure to live up to the billing, one that the coach believes is essential to fuel a good performance. I hope the boys are under pressure to not just perform but to win, he says, Playing the top six Asian countries is our chance to prove where we truly belong. Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 White .
