"The pressure was there as I really wanted to do very well in my boards and ace them. With the result I secured, I am very happy. If you love football and consider education to be as important, you can do both together -- hands down," AIFF quoted Sai as saying.

"The exams started at the end of February this year but my preparation began much before while we were in our training camp. I was following up with my regular school studies at all times while at the camp. If we had training in the morning, I would come back and study for some time before lunch," she added.

"After the evening training, I would study again. If there was no morning training on a day, I would use that time to study too. Basically, whatever time I could get, I used to it to study and prepare," Sai explained her routine.

The 15-year-old striker is probable for the upcoming FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup scheduled to be held in India in 2021. (ANI)
