The Indian women’s Football team faces a stern test against a tricky Nepal in their Olympic Qualifiers Round 2 match in Mandalay, Myanmar on Saturday.
The two teams will be up against each other for the third time since February. In the Hero Gold Cup, Nepal had triumphed 2-1 in Bhubaneswar, while the Indians had revenge of sorts in their 3-1 win in the SAFF Championship final.
India head coach Maymol Rocky said her side would look to score first and put the opposition under pressure.
With only one team qualifying, and both India and Myanmar level on points, a win for India will further boost their chances for a qualification from the Olympic Qualifiers Round 2.
The Indian team registered a 2-0 win over Indonesia in its opening match.
