India failed to cause problems for opponents, says coach Matos

U17 WorldCup

India plays Colombia on October 9 and Ghana on October 12. In recent years Spain has built a reputation of performing well in age group global tournaments so I hope they go past the group stage and then at the knockouts it will be about being the best team on the day.

In their Group A opener of the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup 2017 India at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in the Capital, the Indian U-17s faced USA and went down 0-3, in attendance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, AFC President Sheikh Salman bin-Ibrahim Al-Khalifa, Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore and the President of AIFF Praful Patel.

"We will try to give our hundred percent".

"Every match is a new match as every day is a new day and playing in a FIFA World Cup is a different challenge for both teams as compared to a friendly match", De Matos said. In the 5th minute goalkeeper Dheeraj Singh was forced into a save to keep the Americans at bay.

It left the power to form a government in the hands of Peters and the nine seats held by his New Zealand First Party. Peters has in past elections formed coalition governments with both the National Party and Labour.

"It's that our mistakes will not go unpunished".

India's persistence, or the lack of it, was evident from the third goal which came off a counterattack. "The AIFF gave us time to meet the players at team hotel today". The corner wasn't good enough, but on second attempt Christopher Durkin fired the ball from the 18-yard box and ball went to the back of the net through a deflection by an Indian defender.

The United States should have had its third in the 61 minute when Carleton hit a handsome pass down the right side for Ayo Akinola who had only to the keeper to beat but hit a very poor chip with his attempt. The defensive duo of Anwar Ali and Jitendra Singh tried their best to keep United States of America at bay, but the gulf was too much for India to bridge. After hitting the post, the USA collected the ball and sprung forward.

India started the second half with more vigour.

The Indian U-17s had played Colombia in a Four-Nation Tournament in Mexico City, Mexico where the young colts lost 0-3. But Goslin showed outstanding technique and ability to control the game in the midfield.

I was playing good at the beginning of the second and probably I had nearly match point with those two break points for 3-love. Dimitrov, with his powerful groundstrokes, will look to put pressure on Nadal by attacking him early.

His family runs a tailoring shop back home and spotted the football prodigy in Komal when he was just a five-year-old toddler kicking everything he figured as a ball. It was end-to-end stuff with Colombia slightly dominating initially before Ghana stamped their authority as the match went on. India bunkered hard from the start. The Indian youngsters tried their best, logging thousands of air miles flying to Europe and the Americas for preparing for the big occasion.

"We have come here to win the World Cup".

"We were not nervous. Now our minds are focused on performing well against Colombia and to give our best".

Sargent, Durkin and Carleton scored for USA. He should have had more but final passing and field vision was lacking to either spot him making unsafe runs or completing passes to him. Komal Thatal was India's best player on the pitch but he needed more support from his teammates. But the USA needs to figure out how to play the ball into Sargent in the final third. For a team that will be well behind on skill and physicality, spirit will be everything.
