New Delhi: Indian women’s national football team coach Maymol Rocky on Monday said that the 3-0 victory over Indonesia in a friendly match is very well-deserved.
“We dominated the match from the first whistle and in the end, the 3-0 scoreline does justice to our performance. 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,” the coach said.
However, Rocky insisted that the team now has its focus on the next match and is looking to pick up their fourth win on the trot. “It was a good performance but it is in the past. Our entire attention is on Wednesday’s match and we will continue to work hard and aim to clinch a victory.”
At full-time, the scoreline read 3-0 in favour of the Blue Tigresses as Ratanbala Devi’s second-half hat-trick ensured victory over Indonesia on January 27.
“Playing in the Indian jersey is always a huge honour but the feeling of scoring a hat-trick for the country is hard to put into words! It is a memory I will savour for a long, long time,” Ratanbala said while claiming it was a truly memorable moment for her.
India, who are preparing for the Tokyo Olympic Qualifiers Round 2, will again face Indonesia on January 30.
