While talking to the players, Dr Prabhakaran expressed hopes that the team will make the nation proud by dishing out their best on the pitch. “The entire country is rooting for you. You need to enjoy the moment,” he said.   

Dr Prabhakaran motivated the girls ahead of the tournament through his encouraging words. He said: “You are representing 1.4 billion people. Your performance will be watched live in 140 countries. This is the biggest opportunity for you all to show the world who you are and what you are capable of.”

Mr Prabhakaran met the players and Coach Thomas Dennerby and advised the girls not to lose focus and play as per the coach’s plan. 

“Try your best, and give it all. You should always have in mind a picture of the plan the coach has given you. Keep your focus, it’s a launching pad for you all,” he said.

He also mentioned how everyone can become like their role model, Bala Devi, and asked everyone to dream big. “Look at Bala Devi – she went to Europe to play. You can also do it if you dream big. Do nurture a dream to play for top teams in Europe, where thousands of people will watch you from the stands,” he said.
