India U-17 Women’s World Cup team to play Romania U-17!

The Indian U-17 Women’s National Team will be travelling on an exposure tour to Turkey as part of their preparation for the forthcoming 2020 U-17 Women’s World Cup in India.

The girls travel to Istanbul on February 10 where they will be playing two matches against U-17 Romania Women’s National Team on February 16, and February 19 respectively. Both the matches will kick-off at 3pm IST.

“It is a really good opportunity to play two matches against Romania U-17 Women’s National Team. It’s important for us to start implementing what we are doing in training sessions. We also have plans to introduce a new formation. It’s always good for players to learn different formations,” U-17 Women’s World cup coach Thomas Dennerby mentioned.

“Romania are very strong in tackling, as well as in one-on-one situations. I expect both games will be played in a high tempo,” the coach further explained.

Dennerby further stressed on “improving the endurance level”.

“The matches will enable us an opportunity to see which players are ready for play 90 minutes at a high pace. We have been working very hard to improve the endurance level,” Dennerby stated.

The 2020 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup will be played from November 2-21 across India.

The U-17 girls have, earlier, had a successful exposure trip to Hong Kong before they triumphed in the SAFF U15 Women’s Championship in Bhutan in 2019 where they defeated Bangladesh to lift the trophy.
