Colombia will put us under more pressure: Suresh Singh

Spain won the European U-17 championship in Croatia and they are one of the favourites heading into the FIFA U-17 World Cup in India

Both Matos and Kiyam know India are placed in a tough group alongside the experienced USA, Colombia and Ghana.

"It's big event for India to participate in a football world cup". Sunil Chhetri himself told us that he would give 15 years of his career to play at a World Cup. "One in Spain, One here in India" said Denia when asked about their preparation for the tournament. If they were overawed, the fears were dispelled after an agonising first quarter when they hardly touched the ball. We have to make more passes to the striker.

The first match was played between South American giants Colombia and African powerhouse Ghana. We have a fast player like Aniket which is lucky for us.

The US defender added that the Indian team was hard to break early on and their intensity was wonderful. We will give our best. With the hosts playing against the United States in their FIFA Under-17 World Cup campaign opener, people gathered here to support India despite knowing the limited capabilities of the country's youngsters.

Sargent drew and converted a penalty kick just after the half-hour mark, while Durkin volleyed home the insurance strike six minutes into the second half off a corner kick that wasn't properly cleared.

Most of the American players ply their trade in Major League Soccer youth teams and a couple of them are set to play in top European clubs as well.

Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont has attacked Spain's King Felipe VI for "deliberately ignoring millions of Catalans". Puigdemont said there was now no contact between the government in Madrid and his devolved administration.

Speaking to the media after Saturday's practice session, Wangjam made it clear that even though they were boxed in their own half for long parts of the first period during their opening game against U.S., the idea wasn't to keep defending for the 90 minutes.

45': Second half is underway.

The tournament consists of four teams play against one another. The US was up with two goals lead after this goal against the hosting side. The game ended with a 0-3 win for the US. "Our assumption is that they have improved and that we will have to defend well and contain their forward [Aniket Jadhav] because he can pose adanger".

When will India vs Colombia match be played? They theselves will be seen as futures stars of Indian football. They still have more matches to play in the group and can prove themselves a dark horse.

India had won the bid to host the FIFA World Cup 2017 in December 2013 after much apprehension from authorities on whether the preparations would be complete by then, whether more corruption would take place as witnessed at the 2010 Commonwealth Games and even whether India should bid at all considering India's football rankings. None of their predecessor senior teams had such luxury as they had to make do playing lowly club sides.
