Intrepid hosts set to create history with World Cup bow

U17 WorldCup

The All India Football Federation has formulated a strategy to have their own team of U-17 and U-19 footballers in the next I-League (2017-18) season.

Now comes Colombia. And maybe the slightest hint of progress?

He had the chance to clear the ball once but he unintentionally left it for the on-rushing Sadiq Ibrahim to power home into an empty net.

A Josh Sargent penalty in the 30th minute, a Chris Durkin strike in the 51st minute and a Andrew Carleton counter in the 84th minute sealed the match for the opponents, as India succumbed to a hard-fought defeat.

United Nations warns of more Rohingya refugee influx to Bangladesh
Myanmar's military responded by killing hundreds of people, triggering an exodus of more than 500,000 Rohingya to Bangladesh. The country's security forces also opened fire on Rohingyas, who gathered at the border to cross into Bangladesh.

As predicted by head coach Luis Norton de Matos, the usa were always on the offensive forcing the Indians to defend their citadel for the major part of the game. He has lessons for himself, too.

"The eventual target is to secure progression to the next stage while taking one game at a time". The Colombians went in search of an equaliser after the break, with their best chance falling to substitute Deiber Caicedo.

According to the coach, the events back in Catalonia where an independence referendum has caused political controversy, will not affect the team in anyway and they will concentrate totally on football. "So I'll try to give them the ball and help out with the offence". "The team will give Colombia a run for their money". Colombia have the talent which is common when you hail from South America, but their defenders were a bit slow for which they had to pay the price. They have been preparing very hard for this tournament. U.S. and Ghana clash on Monday in the next group game, before the Americans conclude group play vs. Colombia on October 12. For now, at least. Thye qualified for the India WC after reaching the final of the 2017 CAF Africa Cup of Nations. It must be noted that US had trounced India 4-0 previous year at the All India Football Federation's (AIFF) Youth Cup in Goa. "Every match we play is to win and if we win against Colombia we will be creating history", Matos stressed. One of their five wins was 3-0 over India in Mexico. Even Sunil Chhetri hasn't played a World Cup and told us that he would give 15 years of his career just to play in a World Cup. "It will be different with different tactics and technicalities". We know that they'll put up a tough fight for us. If we focus on that then it will be much better in the Colombia match.

I wish the India team the very best but of course my main interest will be on the Spain team. But they will have to ensure the opening day disappointment doesn't affect their spirits.
