Performances will speak for themselves: Bembem
SHILLONG: Bembem Devi, the name synonymous with Indian Women's Football for the past couple of decades is on another quest. And this time it is defending Eastern Sporting Union's crown in the Hero Indian Women's League 2017-18 which starts on Monday. Her goal is simply 'to take back home what we earned last year'.
'We are the defending champions and our aim is to take back home what we earned last year', declared the Durga of women's football of India.
Dispelling notions of overconfidence she says, "Being the defending champions, there is always an added pressure on you. The weight of expectations can be overwhelming. But if we as a team are not confident enough in our abilities then there is no point in taking the field.There is absolutely no alternative to not believing in yourself."
