“It’s a new situation for everyone. India have never played the World Cup before. This is different ball game altogether,” Dennerby said.
“It’s a unique chance to show everyone that we have prepared well and will not allow anyone to run over us.” The prestigious tournament will be held in Bhubaneswar, Margao in Goa, and Navi Mumbai from October 11-30.
The Kalinga Stadium will host three pool matches of India.
“When you are on the field, everything is held back behind and you just have to focus on the game. That’s what the girls need to do.
“We are not going into the tournament as the favourites. I believe the pressure then is on the opponents,” the head instructor stated.
Pointing out the significance of executing well on the pitch, Dennerby stated: “The performance is key for us. And I hope the girls are not much nervous and will play with confidence. You can’t be nervous and perform at the same time. It’s time to get the ball rolling.”
