AIFF to test Jharkhand's tribal girls

New Delhi, Aug 3 (IANS) All India Football Federation (AIFF) president Praful Patel has offered to train the U-14 Girl's team from Jharkhand who secured third position in Spain's Gasteiz Cup.

AIFF will bear the to-and-fro expenses for the girls to travel to New Delhi from their native state.

"Despite the Gasteiz Cup being a non-official tournament, AIFF's technical team will look into the training schedule of the girls and if any of them are good enough to represent India in their respective age-categories, they would be drafted into the national team," said AIFF in a statement Saturday.
