It was a match not as easy as the 3-0 scoreline would suggest, not least of all because of a near-capacity crowd rooting for an Indian team playing in a FIFA World Cup at any level for the very first time.
Luis Norton de Matos, who took over as head coach in March to replace Nicolai Adam, is among those calling for patience as his lineup takes "a first step for the future" of the game in India. "We found it hard to make that last pass and conceded stupid goals", Matos said immediately after the match.
"We are still the leaders of Africa as far as I am concerned and it is my belief the world will see it in this tournament", Fabin said on Thursday. The team did, however, host and compete in the 2016 AFC U-16 Championship.
Having qualified by virtue of their third-place finish at this year's South American U-17 Championship, Colombia will depend heavily on the attacking trio of Santiago Barrero, Juan Penaloza and Jaminton Campaz.
Brands and Marketing Director, StarTimes, Mr. Qasim Elegbede, said subscribers can catch the live matches on ST World Football (Channel 244 and 254) and ST Sport premium (channel 252) or on the go via StarTimes mobile app. "It was a fantastic ambiance". "Fantastic ambience. Thanks to the Indian supporters". We have tried to develop to play a collective game.
Most of the American players ply their trade in Major League Soccer youth teams and a couple of them are set to play in top European clubs as well. We hope we can play with 12 players - 11 players and the fans. Matos and Kiyam looked in complete control of their emotions.
United States of America coach John Hackworth, too, was not pleased with his team's performance, but praised the Indians for their spirit and tenacity."I am very happy with the performance".
While the US got several chances, India had only had a couple of clear look at the goal. The India U-17 football squad will be eager to script their own fairy tale when the FIFA U-17 World Cup gets rolling on Friday. That they lost due to a penalty and a corner only accentuates the fact that the side has certainly got the potential play proper football.
A senior SDMC official said that providing clean surroundings is imperative to display a better cleaned city to the players, officials, visitors and representatives of various football organisations.
He made several saves that kept India in the game.
"It's a chance that most of us will nearly certainly never get and you have to forgive us for being jealous of you".
