Bengaluru, Oct 19 (UNI) The Indian Women's Hockey Team vice captain Savita says the first match at the Olympics against World Champions Netherlands next year in Tokyo will surely be challenging.
"We have not played Netherlands in any major tournament in the recent past but we follow their matches closely. Chief Coach Sjoerd Marijne as well as Analytical Coach Janneke Schopman from the Netherlands, the duo is well-versed with the playing style of the Dutch national team. Netherlands are undoubtedly aggressive and tactically very sound."
In the upcoming FIH Hockey Pro League matches scheduled for October 27 and 29 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands will take on Great Britain. "Both are very strong teams and it will be very exciting to watch them in action. I feel both matches will be quite closely fought.
It will be interesting to see how both teams fair especially after not having played high-intensity matches in a long time due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We as a team will definitely be following these matches closely as it will provide great insights into their game," Savita added.
Speaking about the on-going training camp in SAI, Bengaluru, Savita said, "When we returned to SAI Bengaluru from a six-week break in August, we had come prepared for a long camp. This is good because we will get good continuity in our regime and we are working on rebuilding our game, fitness etc."

As players, we are taking several precautions during practice schedules, following the SOPs and we are taking extra care about ourselves too, in terms of recovery, rest etc in order to avoid injuries," Savita concluded.
