We achieved our best ever finish of 29th in Poznan and have won the Community Cup in Paris '11 and the Futbol Calle Cup in Santiago '14. In addition, the team has won a number of other honours as well - the Fair Play Trophy in Rio de Janeiro '10, Best Female Player (Disha Lohabare) in Milan '09, UEFA Award for Best Coach (Akshay and Dhaval) in Santiago '14.
