Team India women ready to face the Egypt challenge in a friendly in Jordan

New Delhi, April 5 : Team India senior women squad is all set to take on mighty Egypt in a friendly, which is scheduled to kick-off on Wednesday, at the Prince Mohammed Stadium in Zarqa, Jordan. Head coach Thomas Dennerby said that putting in a good performance after a break will be important for the girls. “It promises to be a good game, against Egypt, and all the girls are feeling ready to return to the pitch once again,” said Dennerby. “We have a lot of respect for all our opponents, but that does not change our approach to any game. We always want to put in a good performance and play to win.” Captain and centre-back Ashalata Devi believes that they are excited to be back playing international matches together, and a brief camp in Goa has helped get the team together to train for the matches against Egypt and Jordan. “It feels great to be back in national colours once again, after a short break. We’re all pumped up and ready to go,” said Ashalata. “We have had a good camp in Goa, and it has helped us to assess ourselves before going for the two matches. Let’s hope for the best.” PC SJC ARN
