his two-week session culminated in head coach Langam Chaoba Devi making the final selection of the 23 players who traveled to Tashkent for the scheduled friendly matches. The chosen squad comprises a blend of senior and promising newcomers, reflecting a strategic mix of experience and fresh talent.

When asked about the possibility of trying fresh faces in the two friendlies, the coach said, “Yes, surely, with the future of Indian football in mind, we are planning to introduce some new players in some positions.”

Chaoba expressed confidence in the team’s preparations and spirit following the camp. “The team have shown significant progress and cohesion over the past two weeks and shaping up in a very composed manner. We are confident that the girls will give their best effort to win both matches,” she said.
