Maymol praises India

NEW DELHI: Indian women’s football coach Maymol Rocky praised her team on winning the friendly against Indonesia.

India defeated Indonesia 3-0 in their first of the two-match friendlies in Jakarta, with Ratanbala Devi netting a hat-trick.

“It was a good performance by the girls. But now we want to focus on the Wednesday’s match. We will continue to work hard and maintain our winning momentum,” said Maymol.

Ratanbala also expressed her delight, claiming that it was a truly memorable moment.

“It’s always a huge honour to represent the national team. Scoring a hat-trick is a great feeling. It’s a memory I will savour for a long time,” she said.

The Indian coach said the victory was well-deserved.

“We dominated the match. The 3-0 score is a justice to our performance,” said Maymol. “In the first half, we had a number of chances and the girls were really up for the battle. Despite not finding the net, we continued with our attacking intent in the second half and got our due reward for it.”
