India is gearing up to make its debut in the FIFA eNations Cup in Denmark, Copenhagen. The team has been drawn up against Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Mexico, and Morocco in Group D. Charanjot Singh, Siddh Chandarana, and Saransh Jain will play five back-to-back matches in the doubles format. Charanjot is the youngest of the group and believes Italy will provide the toughest challenge in the group. The group admitted that they will not be bogged down by the format and have done well in tournaments with a similar format.
“Italy is certainly one of the favorites in the tournament, but we need to focus on ourselves first and try to win the matches one by one,” India FIFA eNations Cup player Charanjot Singh said. “It’s a matter of pride for all three of us to play on the global stage in Denmark, to be there, and to represent our country. The aim is to get the FIFAe Nations trophy to India.”
“It’s an absolute dream to wear the India badge at that level. Last season we came so close, but this time, we worked very hard, and hopefully, we can do well,” Siddh Chandarana added. “Italy and Netherlands may be the toughest teams, but it does not matter who we face. We have the toughest group, and we need to give our best in every match. All we need to do is to go there and express ourselves.”
“My family is really proud and thrilled about the FIFAe Nations Cup. They are very much looking forward to seeing me play,” Saransh Jain said. “We’ve played a number of tournaments where the format is quite similar to back-to-back matches. We’ll be treating this as another normal event, and I hope that things go our way.”
