Indian women’s football coach Dennerby names team for tour to Brazil, here’s the full squad

With
the
team
set
to
depart
on
November
20,
Dennerby
stated
that
all
three
matches
will
be
tough
as
they
are
against
“extremely
technical”
sides.

“Brazil
are
a
really
good
team.
No
other
team,
since
I
have
arrived,
has
tested
our
defence
as
much
as
Brazil
will
do
next
week,”
said
Dennerby.
“In
the
second
game,
Chile
is
another
extremely
technical
side,
but
with
all
the
hard
work
we
have
been
doing,
we
have
also
raised
our
levels.
The
game
against
Venezuela
will
also
be
a
particularly
tough
one
for
us,”
the
coach
averred.

The
Indian
Women’s
Team,
who
are
ranked
57
on
the
FIFA
World
Rankings,
will
face
off
against
World
No.
7
Brazil
on
November
25,
Chile
(World
No.
37)
on
November
28,
and
Venezuela
(World
No.
56)
on
December
1.

The
Confederação
Brasileira
de
Desportos
(CBF)
has
already
named
the
full
squad
for
Brazil,
which
also
contains
legends
of
the
game
like
Marta
da
Silva
and
Formiga
Mota.

Dennerby
believes
that
both
the
veteran
Brazilians
are
brilliant
role
models
for
footballers
worldwide
and
that
the
Indian
players
are
looking
forward
to
playing
against
them.

“They
have
a
very
good
squad
with
stars
like
Marta
and
Formiga.
The
girls
are
all
looking
forward
to
it.
It’s
the
first
time
that
they
will
play
a
team
of
such
stature,
and
it
will
be
good
experience
for
them
all,”
Dennerby
stated.

“For
sure,
when
we
meet
them,
we
need
to
thank
them
for
being
the
role
models
for
football
that
they
have
been.
They
have
shown
that
you
don’t
need
to
quit
football
when
you
are
30-31.
It’s
all
about
performance
and
keep
playing
as
long
as
you
can.
They
are
super
good
role
models.”

While
the
Indian
Women’s
Team
will
face
some
difficult
opponents,
the
players
will
approach
the
matches
with
no
fear.

“I
always
tell
the
girls
to
show
respect
for
all
the
opponents.
They
may
be
ranked
number
one
in
the
world
or
number
105,
but
we
need
to
show
everyone
their
due
respect,”
stated
Dennerby.
“But
of
course,
I
also
tell
them
to
never
fear
any
opponent,
regardless
of
their
rank.
Of
course,
the
Brazil
game
will
be
much
tougher
than
the
Venezuela
one,
but
we
play
hard
in
both
of
them.”
