End of first half- India 0- U.S. 1 (Sargent 30' Pen).

"It's big event for India to participate in a football world cup".

Where will the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup India vs Colombia match be played?

But India have been dealt a blow even before the tournament has begun, with full-back Boris Singh unavailable due to a suspension he picked up in the final 2016 AFC U16 Championship group game against Saudi Arabia. "The team will fight to the last minute and play with confidence, giving Colombia a run for their money", Matos said on Sunday.

"While it is the responsibility of each member association to ensure that their players meet the age requirements, FIFA has chose to conduct magnetic resonance imaging of the wrist at its U-17 competitions", said a FIFA spokesperson.

The US played remaining first-half finding another goal. "We (midfield) have to give them the ball".

India showed heart but lacked in skill and quality against a much superior United States of America. All those catchphrases about them being "the hardest working team" might have come in handy. And so with the second goal which came off a deflection. We played them in Mexico and expect a physically taxing game.

Rick Scott advised the state to ready itself for the extra people as well as for necessitates it may need to house them. Meanwhile, officials have been prepping for waves of residents that look to depart Puerto Rico for the U.S.

Spain striker Abel Ruiz, also present at the presser, opined that Vinicius Junior not playing for Brazil would be a big miss for their opponents on Saturday but that did not mean that they would take the game lightly. The game should be exciting with both teams eager to get the three points from the game but the United States is the clear favorite to take the win. Host countries can be tough at World Cups and the US did its best to not get rattled in a hostile environment.

The shabby ambience that "greeted" the faithful fans of Indian football stood out sorely on an otherwise historic day at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium here on Friday.

The hot weather in Kochi is expected to be testing for the players but Denia feels that they can not use it as an excuse when they take to the field. India will need to make sure they enjoy the occasion on Monday as well, while making sure they display the determination that has earned them plaudits despite a 3-0 defeat.

KOCHI: Even the most hardened football fans could not have imagined India playing in a world cup and Kochi playing host to worldwide matches. But those were practice or friendly matches mostly.

84':Goal ! This is going US's way as Andrew Carleton races past Indiuian defenders to make it 3-0.

"USA played seven worldwide games in the last two months as part of preparations". They looked pretty sharp side and can break out of the group by playing consistently.
