India women’s U-15 team ready to face Nepal: coach Rocky
New Delhi, Dec 18 (IANS) After a thumping 3-0 victory in the SAFF U-15 Womens Championship opener against Bhutan, the team’s head coach Maymol Rocky said her side is ready to face Nepal in their second fixture in Dhaka on Monday.
“The girls are upbeat after their win against Bhutan and are now ready to face Nepal in the second match. A win is the only thing on our mind,” coach Rocky told All India Football Federation (AIFF).
The India U-15 women side completely outplayed Bhutan in the opening encounter. “Yes, it was a great start but we did not get any more goals in the second half so we will look to improve upon that. But I’m happy with the performance of the girls”, Rocky added.
Their opponents Nepal got hammered 6-0 by Bangladesh but coach Rocky has decided to stay cautious and is not dismissive of her rival side.
