Now we have nothing to lose. I hope the girls start playing freely,” Dennerby was quoted as saying in a statement from the AIFF. Hosts India are already out of the World Cup after losing their first two group league matches against USA (0-8) and Morocco (0-3). On Monday, they face the mighty Brazil, considered a force to be reckoned with in women’s football. In the latest FIFA rankings published earlier this week, Brazil’s senior girls are ranked ninth.

Dennerby is very aware of Brazil’s reputation, but at the same time he believes his wards are capable of proving themselves on the pitch. “We have to focus very hard on defending, but we also know that football is not only about defending. It would be nice for us to score in the tournament,” he said. “Hopefully we can have another good performance. Brazil is a good team. And we also know that Brazil are fighting to secure their place in the knockout stages.

So I think they will come out with all guns blazing,” added the coach. The Indian girls, Dennerby said, are ready to play for their honor against Brazil. “We will fight and try to score a goal. It would be nice to come out of this tournament with a goal,” he said. “We have worked on the last decisive pass – the actions around the opponent’s field.

It’s also the hardest part in football – learning exactly how to handle those kinds of situations.” “The girls need to have a better understanding of decision-making – we also need to work a little on the skills in the decisive moments, because in the end the result of all games is decided in the two boxes,” said the Swedish coach. .
India’s senior national women’s team had played against Brazil in November 2021 and lost 1-6.

Coach feels there are similarities in playing style between Brazil’s seniors and juniors. “The style of play in this team is the same. Of course they are not that good yet, but that is normal when you are 17. I would say that it is even more difficult to play against the youth team because in a senior team you have the best players from his country. When you play in the age group, you only have to bring players from a certain age group,” he said.

“Back in Brazil they start playing football from a very early age, which is a huge advantage. But hopefully we can show them tomorrow that we have a good starting eleven in India as well,” said the coach. Shilky Devi, who was used who comes on as a substitute in the senior team’s game against Brazil, said: “I know how strong Brazil are – their fitness level and the way they attack.

I was lucky enough to get the chance to play against them for some time and it was a huge learning experience for me. Their speed, their passing accuracy and the quick decisions they make were things I observed during that match.” “It will be another huge opportunity for us to score against such strong rivals, but we have to do it tomorrow . It is a matter of our pride and honor now,” said the defender.

Striker Lynda Kom also believes that it will be a good chance for the team to put their best foot forward and play a good brand of football against strong opponents.
“We want to score and put in a strong performance against Brazil. We will not give up and throw everything we have as it will be our last game in the current World Cup,” said Lynda.
