He asked the players not to focus on short-term goals but to keep up perseverance, dedication and hard work. He maintained that sport is an essential component of human resource development and our society has to provide an excellent opportunity for our youngsters to develop their sporting skills which would equip them with the right mindset and values for our dynamically changing world. He also encouraged the players citing the examples of Late Dr T. Ao who captained the Indian Football team way back in 1948, a DIRP quoted Ezung as saying.
