” “If we can score an early goal against one of these teams, then they can get a little nervous or start thinking a little too much and get stressed. So there is always a chance and if we get a chance we take it,” said Dennerby while interacting with the media.

The Young Tigresses are currently training in Bhubaneswar under the watchful eyes of the Swedish coach, and one can almost sense the high morale in the squad with just four days to go until the WC starts. The girls are back from their exposure tour to Spain last week and the coach feels that the level of performance has increased since what they played during their last exposure tour to Italy.

– The team’s performance is much stronger than before. Against Sweden we played a good match but unfortunately lost because of some mistakes we made. We have to put our best foot forward now.

” “The team is ready now. All my players are excited to get on the field and perform. We have been practicing for a long time now. We had almost 250 different training sessions in total in the last seven months. It’s clear the girls are eager to go, Dennerby said.

“Today, when we finally entered the WC hotel, we felt like an extra push. Now it’s real and we’re finally here,” he added. “In the last few months we played Odisha senior team a couple of times here in Bhubaneswar and had really good results against them. So if we look at the overall performance in the last two months, I would say we have made great strides since the beginning of this summer.

Hopefully we can do the same when it comes to the World Cup and competitive games,” said the Swedish coach. Dennerby further stated that the girls, who come from different backgrounds, are now strong as a unit and have also mentally prepared themselves for their matches against USA, Morocco and Brazil in the group league.

“When you join a football team, different backgrounds are not unimportant at all. Here we are all the same, we are here for the same reason. We have a goal to achieve and to have it together is wonderful. That’s one of the best things about any team sport.

You always share your dreams and goals with your friends.” “Sometimes when we lose we feel sad and when we win we are happy and we do it as a team all together. And mentally, I think the girls are quite strong now. I observed when they played Sweden.

Now we are close to a top team like Sweden, which means we also have the strength to handle the World Cup. So it also helps you mentally to see that you can perform against good teams on the pitch. It’s also natural to be nervous and we try to prepare them mentally the best way we can,” he said.

India have been drawn in Group A at the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup 2022 India with USA, Morocco and Brazil. When asked about the assessment of India’s three opponents in the group stage, the coach said, “USA has a very strong team and plays fast football.

They play a very high pressing game, putting the opponents under pressure and taking advantage of a lot of mistakes made by the rivals due to the constant pressure. And we have to deal with that. How? Well, we won’t tell you that yet,” he said with a smile.

“Hopefully we’ve found a way to deal with Brazil. We saw them during our tour of Spain because they trained next to us. We saw them come out as a very physical team – some big girls. Morocco is also a good technical team. They are trying to build from the back with patience but we have an idea how to handle it,” said the Indian coach.

The Indian Colts face the USA on October 11 before locking horns against Morocco and Brazil on October 14 and 17 respectively at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar. Kick-off for all matches is at 8 p.m.
