Ahrens Backs India To Do Well At The HWL In Belgium
Mathias Ahrens just about five weeks to ensure the Indian women's hockey team qualifies for your Rio Olympics which is keen to hit the ground running. His immediate target is to get the women into attack mode.
'This is an excellent team from what I saw ones at the Hawkes Bay Cup and its strength clearly is defence. I was very surprised and my focus now may be to work on the attack,' Ahrens said in the first interaction with all the media here on Thursday.
The 51-year-old German admitted it could be tough but was confident of causing an upset in the upcoming Hockey World League Round 3, which would also be the qualifying event for the 2016 Olympics.
'We contain the best teams in the world, Australia and New Zealand, in our group. Belgium will be our big competitor and they will probably be playing a lot of games inside coming days. But we will go out and let them have a very hard and fair challenge and I am confident we can produce a small wonder and go forward,' Ahrens said.
Only Korea has qualified thus far by virtue of winning the Incheon Asian Games and Ahrens felt it wasn't impossible for India to produce the [url=http://www.worldtmall.fr/views/Nike-TN-Requin-Homme,requin-nike-tn-18467.html]requin nike tn[/url] grade.
The Indian women's team has participated only once in the Olympics ' 1980, if it was first included.

'We must win our first three games to arrive at the semifinals. If you see the recent tournament in Hastings, scoring is an issue. Theoretically, you will find 11 spots shared since Brazil has failed to fulfill FIH conditions for automatic qualifications. The girls wish and hungry for fulfillment, they dynamics are good, they've responded incredibly well and I am happy,' Ahrens said.
However, organisational issues can be a concern, though Ahrens refrained from saying so.
The team is without having a full-time doctor and trainer. Ahrens said Matthew Eyles, currently with all the men's team in Bhubaneswar, would double on return knowning that getting a doctor in Delhi won't be [url=http://www.worldtmall.fr/views/Nike-TN-Requin-Homme,acheter-nike-tn-18456.html]acheter nike tn[/url] difficult as needed but what he left unsaid was the clearly secondary importance being accorded to the ladies's team despite
Hockey India's repeated assertions to the contrary.
What he did express dissatisfaction about was the absence of players from working out for various promotional events.
While a good deal had to attend a Railways felicitation function on Wednesday, captain Ritu Rani and Rani Rampal was required to miss training on Thursday for one more promotional event. 'As a coach, I am [url=http://www.worldtmall.fr/views/Nike-TN-Requin-Homme,nike-requin-18455.html]nike requin[/url] not happy giving players away for receptions etc. Everything else, such as the weather, is really a lesser problem,' he insisted.
