"Despite the Gasteiz Cup being a non-official tournament, AIFF Technical Team will look into the training schedule of the girls and if any of them are good enough to represent India, in their respective age-categories, they would be drafted into the national team," AIFF said in a release.

AIFF President Praful Patel invited the young girls to the federation headquarters.
