Need to work on clearances, says Dennerby

Manaus (Brazil), November 28

The Indian women’s football team’s head coach, Thomas Dennerby, said if his players can improve their defensive clearances, they can enjoy better results in the future.

India are set to clash with Chile in their second game of the four-nation international tournament tomorrow after suffering a 1-6 thrashing against Brazil.

“We conceded so many goals, not because we were bad defensively, but more because we had a few weak clearances. If we can improve on that, I think we will stand a better chance in the future,” said Dennerby.

The Swede also talked about his team’s failure to capitalise on the limited chances they had got against Brazil. “We also created a lot of good chances, and maybe we should have scored two goals in the first half. Maybe, if we had gone ahead 2-1 at that point, Brazil would have been under more pressure, and things may have been a bit different,” he said. — PTI
