Krasava Confederations 2017 2

Nicknamed Indian Colts or the Blue Cubs, the Indian team is coached by Luis Norton de Matos, who was brought on board in February 2017 after the All India Football Federation (AIFF) sacked Nicolai Adam due to non-performance. Before reaching New Delhi, India played Mauritius in a friendly match which they won 3-0. "Boys are leaving no stone unturned to make it count in #FIFAU17WC".

Meanwhile, Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli wished the players good luck for the U-17 World Cup. The players looked to be high on confidence as they followed the drills on the guidance of the head coach and other technical staff.

India will play their first game against United States of America, after which they will take on Colombia on October 9 and then two time champions Ghana on October 12.

Matos further stated that the India U-17s, on their day, could put the best of teams under pressure and fight for a win. In a video released by the Indian football team themselves, Dheeraj can be seen training hard to deal with arial balls and free-kicks under the sticks.

"The boys know the meaning and sentiment of wearing a national team jersey in a mega tournament like the FIFA World Cup".

"My great-grandfather was born here and I always heard about India back in Portugal hence it is an wonderful feeling to be here, associated with a keynote in Indian football's history", he added. This lot is the best of our next generation of players.
