The Indian U-17 team led by Amarjit Singh Kiyam has been given direct entry to the tournament given the country's host status. We are still the leaders.

"This cycle of players is unique in terms of the quality, depth and work ethic of the group", USA head coach John Hackworth said as he unveiled his squad.

Amarjit also preferred to recall his long journey from the AIFF Academy to the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup and termed it as a "dream come true" for him.

Norton added: "US, Ghana and Colombia are at big level".

De Matos started his coaching career with Portuguese second division Club Atletico in 1989. But a couple of summers spent overseas won't make a world class team.

"When the player is of 10 years, you have more time to build a uniform programme for him across all the teams, who would work in the same way starting from the grassroots".

The former Nigeria global, who played at the 1994 FIFA World Cup and won Olympic gold in 1996, Emmanuel Amuneke, has embarked upon a successful coaching career that saw him lead the Golden Eaglets to glory at the FIFA U-17 World Cup 2015 in Chile. The teams, representing FIFA's six confederations, have been divided into six groups of four. We've played India once before, we were successful against them, but it wasn't in the opening game of the World Cup, it wasn't them hosting a World Cup. "These were the matches where the Indian team got the exposure and I think this team will try its best to live up to the expectations of the fans". We played good games in the practice matches. "We're happy to be here in India". There will be 60,000 people at the stadium, there will be people watching us on television also and we will fight and give our best and we will see what happens with the result later. There have been dissenting noises about everything right from how the team was assembled to how the seats at the stadium are still dusty, and these will escalate when everyone realises that Indian football still has light years to travel to catch up with world standards.

The draw was held on July 7 in Mumbai. It's a lovely country, very vast and diverse. We are selling 20,000 a day.

How did you start playing football? We are not seeing that we are getting affected by this (pollution). India may not have a rich football heritage, an Asian Games gold medal in 1962 and a fourth-place finish at the 1956 Melbourne Olympics, but this can be a window to new avenues.

Gideon Acquah, who plays for Bokoafwa Tano FC, accompanied his coach, and was asked if he was aspiring to be the top scorer for the tournament. I am very excited.

As the India colts get ready to make their World Cup debut against United States of America on Friday, football fans in the city are gearing up to cheer their home team in style. The two Semi-Finals will be played on October 25.
