Manipur Passion for the game! Jeakson Thounaojam once fasted 2 days when told to stop playing football

Elsewhere in that section, Colombia overcame U.S. to claim second place based on their superior head-to-head record, with the two teams having finished level on points, goal difference and goals scored.

Amarjit Singh Kiyam-led India bowed out of their maiden Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup as they lost 0-4 to two-time champions Ghana in their third and final group A match at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, New Delhi on Thursday.

The result leaves both sides even on six points along with group winners Ghana and the Colombians claiming the tie-breaker based on the head-to-head result.

Colombia's opener came off a poor US defensive sequence in the third minute, with Juan Vidal pouncing from close range. Unfortunately, Colombia won the game 1-2 with Juan Penaloza's victor.

India's Under-17 football coach Luis Norton de Matos said his wards had moved from "generating hope" to "doing something significant" as they had gained experience in the ongoing World Cup at home. Towards the end, Ghana's Danso and Toku hardly broke sweat to score the goals.

Turkey did manage to find a consolation in second-half injury time from Kerem Kesgin's powerful shot from the edge of the area. Mali and New Zealand battle it out for the second spot while Turkey too have an outside chance. "I am proud and pleasantly surprised by the behaviour of my boys in the three matches they played". Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi and Dr. DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai will be the venues for tonight's fixtures. Captain Eric Ayiah scored twice-in the 43rd and 52nd minutes.

The joy was shortlived as Colombia retook the lead soon after...

Colombia and U.S. were tied on goal difference too, plus-2 but the head-to-head result forced the South Americans to pip United States for the second place.

The event in India is due to continue tomorrow with another four matches.
