Out to prove a point
India would look to pick up the pieces and salvage some pride when they play Morocco in their second group match of the FIFA Women’s U-17 World Cup here tomorrow.
The hapless Indians suffered an 8-0 thrashing to a rampaging USA in their opening match on Tuesday, and Thomas Dennerby’s side will look to overcome the disappointing result and focus on getting at least a point in the Group A battle between the debutants.
It won’t be an easy match for India though, as Morocco had made it to the age-group showpiece after a strong show in the African qualifying tournament in which they had beaten Ghana in a penalty shootout.
The Indians were simply overwhelmed by the Americans, but would hope to dish out a much better performance against Morocco. The taller and stronger Americans scored multiple goals from corner kicks and India would look to avoid repeating the same mistake of giving away too many corners.
