Mr Kushal Das , AIFF General Secretary told the AIFF TV “The preparation for the U-17 WWC was going very well. Our coach Thomas Dennerby was quite satisfied. He felt that going for the exposure trips would certainly add more experience to the team. Unfortunately, we have to live with the circumstances. We will see what we can do. There is no doubt that if we could have managed some exposure tours, it would have definitely helped”.
The General Secretary clearly stated that Thomas Dennerby Women’s head coach of India’s U-17 football team was quite satisfied with the Team’s preparation for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World CUP. Mr Das later added “For the U-17 girls’ team, we probably think that maybe by November–December things will get better. We can manage a few tours. We just hope for that”.
