India head coach Thomas Dennerby admitted that his team were no match to the USA after it suffered a 0-8 humiliation in their FIFA Women’s U-17 World Cup opener but insisted that the home team is capable of playing better.

“I did not expect to let in so many goals because defending has been quite good when they played against Sweden two and half weeks ago. We defended very well, we had two shots on the bar and we were creating chances. But honestly, USA were one level up even if you compare with Sweden at least. They are a very good side if you look at their skills,” the coach said on Tuesday.
