“Yes, I agree that India’s performance in the ongoing U-17 Women’s World Cup has not been too good, but the results are temporary,” Chaubey was quoted as saying in an AIFF release. “When you play against top teams like the USA, Morocco or Brazil, it gives you the kind of experience that helps take the game to the next level.”

Asked about the importance of hosting the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup, he said, “It’s a really big opportunity for Indian women. This, I’m sure, will encourage many girls in our country to play the game. “In fact, I only recently suggested that there should be no discrimination in the remuneration male and female footballers receive when representing the nation.

We have also discussed taking the Hero IWL (Indian Women’s League) to a larger scale and spreading it to 30 cities in the country.” India have secured a place in next year’s AFC U-17 Asian Cup for boys in the qualifiers in Saudi- Arabia earlier this month.

“When the U-17 team does well, it indicates the future development and future of the footballers. We have plans to bring in the boys from this U-17 team along with other talented boys from the same age group who were not selected by some reason,” said Chaubey. “We will make a bigger pool and sit down with the coaches and support staff of the U-17 team to devise a detailed strategy so that these boys become the backbone of the national team in the U-23 and beyond.

“I am equally happy that this qualification has come under an Indian coach,” Chaubey said after completing 50 days in office. Chaubey, who was elected as the AIFF chief on September 2, reiterated that a new roadmap for Indian football will be released within 100 days of his tenure.

“We are going all out to make the upcoming edition of the I-League a huge success. We are carefully considering everything about how it will be run, what will be the timing of the matches, who will be its broadcaster and what will the quality of the broadcasts be.

” Talking about the grassroots initiative, Football for Schools, which was recently launched as a joint venture with the Union Ministry of Education and FIFA, Chaubey said, “AIFF and the Ministry of Education will work closely together to make this effort a true success.

This is a program that will reach 2.5 million children in the country.” “We also have plans to introduce more tournaments. If we can restart the U-21 national championship, it will benefit India’s U-23 team.

A uniform youth league will be introduced to get the best out of it. “The former all-state football players, perhaps those who have played for more than a decade, would be let in. Their expertise can be used as scouts in youth tournaments.”
