India head coach Thomas Dennerby announces 21-member squad for FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup 2022

India U-17 National Women's team head coach Thomas Dennerby on Wednesday announced 21 players squad for the FIFA U-17 World Cup 2022 scheduled to begin next week.

India has been drawn into Group A alongside USA, Morocco, and Brazil. They will face the USA on October 11, followed by Morocco and Brazil on October 14 and October 17, respectively, at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar. The other two venues for the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup India 2022 are Goa and Navi Mumbai.

"It's a new situation for everyone. India has never played in the World Cup before. This is a different ball game altogether. It's a unique chance to show everyone that we have prepared well and will not allow anyone to run over us. Everyone wants to play the World Cup, but I can only select the best 21 in the squad," Coach Dennerby said.

"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 favorites. I believe the pressure then is on the opponents," said the India coach said.

Pointing out the importance of performing well on the pitch, Dennerby said: "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."

India squad for FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup 2022: Monalisha Devi Moirangthem, Melody Chanu Keisham, Anjali Munda, Astam Oraon, Kajal, Nakata, Purnima Kumari, Varshika, Silky Devi Hemam, Babina Devi Lisham, Nitu Linda, Shailja, Shubhangi Singh, Anita Kumari, Lynda Kom Serto, Neha, Rejiya Devi Laishram, Shelia Devi Loktongbam, Kajol Hubert Dsouza, Lavanya Upadhyay, and Sudha Ankita Tirkey.
