Maymol exudes confidence ahead of friendlies against Indonesia

NEW DELHI: India women’s football team coach Maymol Rocky is happy with the performance in the back-to-back friendlies against Hong Kong.

India had won both the matches, which are a part of their preparations for Tokyo 2020 Olympic Qualifiers Round 2.

“We experimented a lot with our tactics. Most importantly, we got the chance to do it against a quality opponent. We wanted to test some permutations and combinations, and our aim was to make the most out of the series in terms of experimenting,” said Maymol.

India will now be heading to Indonesia for another round of friendlies on January 27 and 30 respectively.

“They (Hong Kong) knew our strengths and kept a compact shape while defending deep,” she said. “A winning momentum further helps us boost our confidence. Every team presents its own challenges and so will Indonesia. We are ready and prepared for them.”
