Camp for Nehru Cup returns to Jaypee Greens
NEW DELHI: The 27-member Senior Indian National squad shifted base to their final leg of the Preparatory Camp for the forthcoming Nehru Cup to Jaypee Greens in Greater Noida on Thursday (August 16, 2012). The squad was earlier based in Bangalore where they have been training for a fortnight under National Coach Wim Koevermans.
The Nehru Cup kicks-off on August 22, 2012. India are slated to play Syria on the Opening Day at 7pm.
“We have had a fruitful training session in Bangalore so far. The boys have been cooperative and have displayed great attitude,” Koevermans told www.the-aiff.com.
“As we shift base to Delhi-NCR, we will be training at the Jaypee Greens in Greater Noida. Hopefully the weather stays good as the last week stays very crucial.”
Torrential rain had forced Koevermans to shift base to KSFA’s artificial turf after training at the Jaypee Greens in early August.
The 27-member list stays as follows:
GOALKEEPERS: Subrata Pal, Subhasish Roychowdhury, Karanjeet Singh.
DEFENDERS: Nirmal Chhetri, Denzil Franco, Gourmangi Singh, Gurwinder Singh, Raju Gaikwad, Khelemba Meitei, Syed Rahim Nabi, Mohan Raj.
MIDFIELDERS: Mehtab Hossain, Rocus Lamare, Milan Singh, Baldeep Singh, Jewel Raja, Francis Fernandes, Alwyn George, Anthony Pereira, Gilbert Oliviera, Sanju Pradhan, Clifford Miranda, Joaquim Abranches.
FORWARDS: Robin Singh, Sunil Chhetri, Manandeep Singh, Jeje Lalpekhlua.
