SAFF Women’s Championship 2022: India take on Pakistan in a historic event 

September 6, 2022

After the AIFF drama, India’s senior women’s national team will start their campaign against arch-rivals Pakistan in the SAFF Women’s Championship 2022 at the Dashrath Rangasala Stadium in Kathmandu, Nepal. Pakistan’s women’s team will return to action after an eight-year gap caused due to recurring FIFA bans on the Pakistan Football Federation. India and Pakistan are drawn in Group A, which also features Bangladesh and Maldives. 

The Indian team consist of high-profile players such as Grace Dangmei, who recently joined Uzbekistan club FC Nasaf, Aditi Chauhan, the Indian goalkeeper who also plays for Gokulam Kerala, and Soumya Guguloth, who has recently signed a contract with ŽNK Dinamo Zagreb.

The Blue Tigresses have won 9 out of the previous 10 games and look like favourites to extend their winning streak in a fixture that holds immense importance.

The Pakistan team, on the other hand, feature Nadia Khan, who plays for Doncaster Rovers Belles Ladies in England. Khan will be the first British-Pakistani to represent Pakistan. Her experience in European football is a serious threat to India. The 21-year-old can play in the midfield as well as a false nine
