India lose to Colombia in Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup

Players of Ghana celebrate their win against Colombia in the FIFA U-17 World Cup 2017 football match at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi on Friday.|PTI

Coach Luis Norton de Matos was not happy with the outcome of the opening game, and he would be hoping that his players put up a better show against the South American giants. "As a coach, I would not like to lose".

The telling moment of the half was, however, reserved for last when India were stopped by the post, Rahul Kannoly's rasping left footed volley brushing the outside of the post in the closing seconds of the first half. The same is going to happen on Monday, October 9, where four matches are set to be played, with the focus on the home team, India, who will take on Colombia at JLN Stadium in Delhi. The Indian fans took to Twitter to celebrate the magnificent goal. "It was a mistake of the referee".

"India were very organised at the back against the U.S., they conceded an unfortunate penalty otherwise they would have made things more hard for the US", said Restrepo before Colombia's practice session on Friday. Hitting the framework, they say, is bad omen in football and the saying stayed true as Colombia broke the deadlock, and Indian hearts, with a fine strike after the change of ends.

In the 15th minute, forward Abhijit Sarkar got the first chance for India from the box, but the close-range shot was prevented by Colombian goalkeeper Kevin Mier. "Every match we play is to win and if we win against Colombia we will be creating history", Matos stressed. Colombia had made seven attempts as compared to India's three. But a momentary lapse, after a historic goal, meant they still returned empty-handed.

Russian Federation reportedly used Google, Gmail, YouTube to interfere with 2016 election
Almost $275,000 worth of ads on Twitter were bought by RT, a Russian government-linked news outlet, during 2016. According to the report , Google and Twitter have not been cooperating with each other in their investigations.

In spite of praising the Colombian side, Matos also raved on about his own side saying, "We are very organized and I think we can keep this concentration".

"Our strongest point is our organization".

India's striker Jeakson Thounaojam created hopes for the Indian flag to fly high in the 82nd minute of the game by scoring an equaliser against Colombia in India's second group match of the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi.
