In the first friendly encounter between the two teams, Priyangka Devi, who scored her first goal for the Blue Tigresses defeated Egypt 1-0 on Wednesday at the Prince Mohammed Stadium in Zarqa, Jordan.

Priyangka’s Contribution to the Victory

The first half started with the Indian team pushing hard to take the lead. In the 18th minute, captain Ashalata Devi attempted to take the lead with a long-range shot, but Anju, who had hung on to the ball, wasted the opportunity. Manisha almost scored the opening goal of the night a few minutes later, but the Egyptian custodian intercepted Dalima’s right-wing pass.

Before the opponent could get into the game, India took an early lead thanks to a quick shot by Priyangka in the 30th minute, which remained the game’s lone goal. Dalima was able to send the ball to Priyangka thanks to Manisha’s excellent left-wing cross, and the young midfielder eventually struck the back of the net. As a result, India was up 1-0 at the halftime break.

Second Half of the Game


The second half followed a similar pattern, with India producing more chances. At the restart, Head Coach Thomas Dennerby made his first substitution, replacing striker Renu with Pyari Xaxa. Pyari came close to scoring ten minutes after the restart when she got on the end of a cross from Manisha with a fantastic run, but the shot was saved by the keeper.

Sandhiya took the role of Anju Tamang, and Soumya and Ratanbala took the place of Grace and Priyangka Devi, respectively. Before the hour, skipper Engy Ahmed Sayed tried her luck from close range, but Sowmiya stood tall to confidently deny her.

In the closing minutes of the game, Hayam Abdellatif had the final effort for Egypt, but it landed securely in Sowmiya’s gloves. Dennerby made the last substitution in the waning minutes of regulation time, replacing Manisha with Mariyammal. The match was soon over, and the Indian Women’s Team had won for the first time in Jordan.
