India All Set to Host U-17 FIFA World Cup
Playing in their maiden Federation Internationale de Football Association tournament, rank outsiders India were outclassed by a side that was a few notches above the "Boys in Blue".
India next face Colombia in an 8pm kickoff on October 9 at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Delhi.
FOR THE FIRST TIME since the loss to US, a member of India's U-17 squad faced the media and addressed the game, as well as the plan for the upcoming games. Acosta can be streaky but he made a strong case as to why he should start in the No. 10 position when the games become a lot harder after today.
"My players were shy at the beginning". Indian team was completely outclassed by the usa team.
India got another chance to open their account in the 82nd minute when Anwar Ali got some space near the second post to shoot home Komal's corner-kick. This is not the way we play. The opposition's striker, Joshua Sargent didn't miss the opportunity to score. "At half-time, it was very much possible to overturn the game", he stated at the official press conference. Yes, Indian boys had played so many games as part of their preparation. "We're ready for that", he said. They struggled to complete passes and ended up numerous times in giving away the ball to opponents. This allowed U.S. to go on the counter-attack and add one more to their tally to seal off the contest. Fifa's decision to allot the World Cup to U.S. had its detractors who believed the USA were more about showbiz than sport, but the nation proved everyone wrong.
A hint of bad luck put India two goals behind early in the second half. They attacked well in the starting periods but couldn't find the back of the net. The USA players dominated the game from the start and their performance outdid that of the Indians.
Playing any FIFA Tournament for the first time, the young colts soaked the American pressure. "If you are well organized then (the opponent's) speed doesn't matter - if we are in position, we can solve the problem of speed". Even Sunil Chhetri said he envied us and that he would give up 15 years of his career to play a World Cup.
Outside the field of play, Matos will hope that a sizeable crowd will again turn up to cheer them on. The game was marred by poor management issues by the Organizing Committee.
A defensive mix-up gave Thotal a golden chance to open the account for India, but his chip shot flew over the United States goal. Even Sunil Chhetri has never played in the World Cup.
Matos said they would fight to win against Colombia to progress in the tournament.
How do I watch the match between India vs Colombia live?
