The India women's national football team is controlled by the All India Football Federation and represents India in women's international football competitions. The women's football scene didn't have the same chance to spread as the men's game did, and thus the team struggles to keep up with more talented international squads such as China and Japan. However, India is beginning to recover from this jump-start, and is growing stronger with each year. The women's team will return to the field on September 7, 2012, from nearly a yearlong hiatus. They were re-established on November 2009 for a 2-month training camp.[2]

Anadi Barua was appointed as head coach in the beginning of 2013.[3]

History[edit]

When India became affiliated with FIFA in 1948, the team was formed. Since then, India has showed strong performances in the AFC Asian Cup and in World Cup qualifiers. Although the team has never qualified for a World Cup, this may partially be due to such strong teams as China and Japan sharing a qualifying bracket with them.

The brand new start for Indian Women's football[edit]

In March 2011 India Women began a brand new chapter that would see them improve.[4] They participated in the qualifiers for the 2012 Olympics in March 2011. In their first match they beat rivals and group hosts Bangladesh 3–0. Then in the second round India Women played Uzbekistan where they tied the first match 1–1 but lost the second leg 1–5 and were officially knocked out.
