After a narrow defeat at the hands of Uzbekistan, the women’s football team of India marched to a resonating victory over Turkmenistan in their second tie in the Turkish Women’s Cup conducted in Alanya.


Riding on the hattrick from markswoman Sanju Yadav, India cruised to a 10-0 victory over their counterparts in a completely lopsided affair.


Dangmei Grace drew first blood for India as early as in the 7th minute. She was followed by a relentless battery from her comrades in blue. Sanju doubled the lead shortly and went on to score her second in what apparently seemed to be India’s third.


The second-half saw renewed vigour from the Indian outfit as they went on all guns blazing against Turkmenistan, gauging their shallowness in the team’s unity and coherence.


Led by an upbeat Indumathi, India’s attacking force left their opposition in shambles. Anju Tamang struck the back of the net within just 6 minutes after resumption to make it a sound 4-0 for the Indians.


With the floodgates wide open, the Indian outfit never really practised any restraint. The following goals came from Grace Lalrampari and Ranjana to continue a humiliating torture of Turkmenistan.

With the score locked at 6-0, Turkmenistan’s primary objective digressed away from a comeback and zeroed in on the aim to thwart India from scoring more goals. However, being a far more technically superior side, India never really faced much hindrance from their counterparts. Sanju Yadav completed her hattrick in the 71st minute, latching to on a lovely pass by Dalima Chiber, who registered her third assist in the game.


Sumithra Kamaraj, Anju Tamang and skipper Indumathi completed the rout after pumping in three goals in the dying embers of the game to take the tally for India to a staggering 10 goals in the match which left Turkmenistan undone.


Maymol Rocky’s girls made an emphatic statement through this victory and will go into their next encounter against Romania with high morale. Post this fray, India’s next halt will be 2019 SAFF Women’s Championship.
