U-17 World Cup begins today: Test for hosts India, in more ways than one

U17 WorldCup

They are one of the favourites for the tournament.

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.

U.S. and Ghana clash on Monday in the next group game, before the Americans conclude group play vs. Colombia on October 12.

On Friday, India will be playing against the U.S. and Ghana will play Colombia at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi, while New Zealand will be playing Turkey and Paraguay will play Mali at the DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai. "A warm welcome and best wishes to all teams taking part in the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup". The American players began with a possessive match. We will also try and work on that. If they were overawed, the fears were dispelled after an agonising first quarter when they hardly touched the ball.

However, India is not a favourite to win the World Cup. The opposition's striker, Joshua Sargent didn't miss the opportunity to score. "We are all set for the Colombia game and we'll give it everything". But we were excited as it was our first major tournament and eventually we made our families proud.

Matos has already maintained that he wants to show the world that "the Indian team is as organized as the rest of the world and if we can show the world that we too can play football, it would be even better". They struggled to complete passes and ended up numerous times in giving away the ball to opponents. "They (USA) will be strong in attack and we have to prepare to counter their attack". Indian coach himself looked frustrated by the Indian performance.

Aniket Jadhav looked risky towards the end of first half but he too lacked power to finish off the move. We played them in Mexico and expect a physically taxing game. IN the first 20 minutes, both the teams got off to a slow starting, with some of the United States of America players aiming for a shot on target, but failing. "If you are well organized then (the opponent's) speed doesn't matter - if we are in position, we can solve the problem of speed". "It is extremely good for Indian football", Durkin said. The US was up with two goals lead after this goal against the hosting side. "We've learnt that at this level we will have to pay even for the smallest mistakes".

84':Goal ! This is going US's way as Andrew Carleton races past Indiuian defenders to make it 3-0. Winning and losing are part and parcel of the game.

Ghana lost the African U-17 championship final to Mali earlier this year, and their last semi-finals appearance at the U-17 World Cup came in Korea Republic in 2007.
