Buenos Aires, Jan 14 (TIWN) The Indian women's hockey team is keen on making every opportunity count in the run-up to the Tokyo Olympic Games in July and the eight-match tour in Argentina provides one such opportunity where the team can assess their game.

"Playing against a strong team like Argentina in their home ground won't be easy but our focus will be on bringing out our best play against them. This will be our first competitive match in almost a year and we are keen on learning where we stand in terms of fitness and execution against a top team like Argentina who are currently ranked number two in the world," said India's ace dragflicker Gurjit Kaur.

She added that it would be a good test to assess their mental and physical strength. "We worked really hard on our fitness over the past 11 months in SAI and the aim was to return to our best form. It is against teams like Argentina where we can test our potential," she added.
