Vastavam web: The Indian women are all geared up to play Nepal here Thursday in their first match of the 2020 AFC Olympic Qualifying Tournament. They will look to secure three points from the game in order to get their campaign off to a winning start. In the previous four editions of the competition, the Indian side has never made it past the initial stage and this time around, there is a high degree of confidence within the team after a successful three-week preparatory camp in Mumbai under head coach Maymol Rocky.

“In such tournaments, how you start the competition is really important and the Nepal game will be extremely crucial for us to gather the much-required momentum.” The coach said the Mumbai camp was a fruitful one for the team, helping the newcomers to gel with the rest of the squad.
