We are confident about our chances at the Asian Games after our Nations Cup triumph: Savita Punia

It is Savita Punia’s belief that the Indian women’s hockey team will achieve good results at the Asian Games in Hangzhou next year following their FIH Nations Cup triumph last Saturday in Valencia.

As a result of winning the inaugural edition of the tournament and being promoted to the Premier League for 2023-24, the team returned to the national capital on Monday morning.

We have had a successful year in 2022 and we will continue to strive for more titles and victories in the future. Next year, we will be competing in the Asian Games 2022, and we will definitely try to achieve good results,” said Savita upon arriving at the IGI airport.

In my role as captain, I am very proud of my teammates and delighted with their performance. Throughout the game, everyone gave their best effort, and we maintained our focus on and off the field, which made me feel incredibly proud to be a part of such a team,” stated Savita.

This was perhaps the “best moment” for Gurjit Kaur and the team as she scored the only goal in the match.

As far as I am concerned, winning the Nations Cup final must rank as one of the most memorable moments for me and the rest of the team. Gurjit stated, “We had this as our goal from the very beginning, and being able to achieve it felt very satisfying.”.

In addition, Lalremsiami reached 100 caps for the Indian national team during the tournament.

The fact that I am able to reach the 100-cap mark at such an early age is something that gives me a great deal of pleasure. My sincere gratitude goes out to all of the team members for their continued support.

It is an honor for us to have won the Nations Cup, and we are determined to continue to work hard in the future,” said Lalremsiami.
