Indian football endured some tumultuous times in the past few months. After being banned by FIFA for the first time in 85 years for undue third-party interference, the All India Football Federation (AIFF) quickly rose to occasion to vote former footballer Kalyan Chaubey as president via elections.

Chaubey defeated former national captain and legendary Indian footballer Bhaichung Bhutia 33-1 for the top post. Shaji Prabhakaran was elected as AIFF secretary general. FIFA lifted the AIFF ban on August 27 clearing the decks for India to host its first-ever FIFA women’s football tournament.

India have already announced their 21-member squad. Hosts India have been drawn in Group A alongside USA, Morocco and Brazil. India will face USA on October 11, followed Morocco and Brazil on October 14 and October 17 respectively, at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar.

Ahead of the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup 2022, the Indian team played a couple of friendlies in Spain as a part of preparation for the mega event. The Indian team lost to Sweden 1-3 in their opening fixture before thrashing WSS Barcelona Club 17-1.   

India head coach Thomas Dennerby has full faith that the team will give Brazil and USA, a run for their money with an aim to qualify for the quarterfinals. “Of course, we're up against absolute top teams,” the 63-year-old told reporters in a virtual interaction ahead of the big meet.

“But if we have a really good day and the teams have a little bit weaker outing, there's always a chance for the team coming out like underdogs to win that game.” If we can score an early goal against one of these teams, they may get a little bit nervous, get stressed and so on.

If their respective senior FIFA rankings are of any indication, then USA are the world no 1. Brazil are in top-10, while Morocco (76) are the only nation below the 58-ranked India in the senior women’s rankings. All India’s matches will start from 8 PM IST.

There will be 24 group stage games. The knock-outs start on October 21. The tournament was originally scheduled to be held in 2020 but was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 16 teams have been divided into four groups of four each.

The top two teams of each group make the quarterfinals. Hosts India, Morocco and Tanzania are making their debuts at FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup. Spain are the defending champions, having won their first title in 2018.

Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Margao, Goa will host the semifinals while the final is scheduled on October 30 at DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai. Navi Mumbai and Goa will also host the quarterfinal matches.
