The ‘supergoats’ can bend it a fair way. Eighteen of them just got back from Spain, where they reached the quarters of a local tournament and slotted into third place in another. But who are the ‘supergoats’ and what game is this that they are playing? Well, for that you’d have to travel to Ormanjhi, some 25 kms from Ranchi, to a group of village girls who started play­ing football only some three years back but are already creating waves.  

“We don’t even have a proper ground for them to practice,” laughs coach Sandeep Chhetry who accompanied the girls. “In Spain, they were playing on natural grass and synthetic grass.” Their initial diffidence gave way soon enough because they were treated like royalty, Chhetry tells Outlook over the phone.
