India U-17 girls prepare in Jamshedpur for FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup!

The Indian U-17 Women’s Team are gearing up currently in Jamshedpur as part of their preparatory process for 2022 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup which is slated to be held from October 11-30, 2022.

A total of 35 girls are currently in camp in Jamshedpur, with more waiting on the wings for a call-up, as per the coach’s discretion. Among the 35 players summoned, Shilky Devi has already been a part of the Senior National Women’s team squad for the 2022 AFC Women’s Asian Cup, while Astam Oraon, Nitu Linda and Lynda Kom was part of the 2021 SAFF U-19 Women’s Championship which was held in Bangladesh in December 2021.

The girls are currently training under Suren Chettri while Head Coach Thomas Dennerby and Assistant Coach Alex Ambrose will join them soon.

Alex who was also in charge of the scouting process stated: “The scouting part was the toughest. It was an experience in itself. I want to record the efforts and help which came in from the State Associations.”

“Scouting is a continuous process, and we are working to build a team for the future.”

The camp in Jamshedpur has been set up with the support from the Government of Jharkhand. Earlier, the Senior National Women’s team had also camped for several months in Jamshedpur ahead of the 2022 AFC Women’s Asian Cup with infrastructural and logistical help coming in from the State Government.

“I am very happy and thankful to the Jharkhand Government for hosting us here. They have been staunch supporters of Indian Football, and have facilitated a safe environment for us all throughout,” Alex mentioned.
