AFC Women's Asian Cup 2022 in India a huge motivation: Bala Devi

AFC Women's Asian Cup 2022 in India a huge motivation: Bala Devi

New Delhi, Jul 3 (UNI) Women's Team forward Bala Devi feels that the announcement of India as the hosts for the AFC Asian Cup 2022 has further motivated her to remain at peak fitness as and when she can hit the training ground once again.

The mercurial Indian striker is quietly working away at her own fitness at her home away from home in Glasgow, Scotland, where she also awaits the restart of the Scottish Premier League.

"There really isn't a lot to do as of now, apart from train and keep yourself at the peak of fitness," Bala said to www.the-aiff.com. "I was really excited when I saw India were announced as the hosts. It really is an honour to host such a prestigious tournament. It means so much for women's football in India – the announcement has given us all that extra motivation."

Bala has been altering her schedule as per the pandemic situation and has kept herself busy working on indoor exercises, yoga, or maybe going in for jogging at nearby parks while maintaining social distancing.

"Due to the current situation we are all doing our own individual practice and fitness," she informed. "When the team does report together we will see what the plans are. I will train and play for my club Rangers FC once things open up after the lockdown and hope to be at peak fitness."
