Twitterati praise Indian team's gritty performance against U.S. in opener

U17 WorldCup

Those moments didn't end in leaps of joy but definitely put a smile on the face of fans who walked back home from the Jawaharlal Nehru (JLN) Stadium after India's U-17 team lost 0-3 defeat against the US in the country's first ever FIFA World Cup match. We had pressure in the first game and we gave United States of America a very tough fight. Once the U-17 World Cup concludes, India will turn its attention to winning the bid for the U-20 World Cup two years later. 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.

"We will be working as hard as possible with all facility owners to ensure that drinking water is readily available for all spectators from here on", it added. We know that the Indians are going to challenge us.

The Indian coach decided on a midriff-heavy 3-6-1 format, with only one striker in Abhijit Sarkar, while the U.S. started on 4-3-3.

"I thought India played really well, I'm very impressed with the team". It was a big occasion, the first time we played in front of 45, or was it 60 thousand?

The US played remaining first-half finding another goal.

Bayern Munich appoint Jupp Heynckes as head coach to replace Ancelotti
Bayern Munich have announced their new coach, who will take charge of the German giants after Carlo Ancelotti was sacked. Heynckes had previously told German publication Kicker that his appointment was an act of friendship and not a comeback.

The United States were tired of the likes of Komal Thatal and Ninthoinganba Meetei catching them on the counter and treaded carefully with their attacks in the early minutes.

Brilliant exchanges from an electrifying first half but it was the Colombians who showed a great deal of maturity in attack despite failing to find the back of the net. "The strength of the Indian team is their collective ability to play football as a combined unit and we bank on that factor to help us win against Colombia", he said. "So we weren't nervous, we were excited to play our game. everyone told us the stadium would be nearly full and we should mentally prepare for the crowd.it was just as good as I expected". They looked spent even before the first half had ended, unable to deal with the 37 degree heat in which the match had kicked off.

Where will the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup India vs Colombia match be played? We won't disappoint you, we won't disappoint India.

India's persistence, or the lack of it, was evident from the third goal which came off a counterattack. "We've learnt that at this level we will have to pay even for the smallest mistakes". They were organised and there was no space to play through.

The wishes of Indian football officials and players came true as thousands of football lovers thronged the Jawaharlal Nehru stadium here to witness the world's most popular sport. The game ended with a 0-3 win for the US. "It was our first World Cup match and it was history to be playing in India", he said.
