Fine-tuning a few aspects of their game in the run-up to the Olympics will help the Indian women’s hockey players create history, says former goalkeeper Helen Mary.
The Indian women’s team has made rapid strides at the world level with significant performances in major tournaments over the past three to four years.
“The way they played in Argentina and Germany recently, I feel they are 90 per cent ready. Some fine tuning of their game in the upcoming weeks and I surely believe they can create history in Tokyo. The tri-colours will fly high in Tokyo,” Helen said on an episode of Hockey Te Charcha.
“The way they played in Argentina recently… even though they couldn’t register a win against the world no. 2 squad, the style they played and the confidence they showed while playing against the home team on their home ground, was something I have never seen in them before,” she added.
