U.S. advance at U17 World Cup despite Colombia loss

Share

Despite years of preparation, India had one of the worst campaigns in the tournament as they failed to garner a single point in three games and conceded nine goals.

Elsewhere in that section, Colombia overcame United States of America to claim second place based on their superior head-to-head record, with the two teams having finished level on points, goal difference and goals scored.

India's maiden Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 campaign concluded on a heartbreaking note as they were thrashed by Ghana 4-0 in their final group match of the tournament at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi on Thursday.

India's game fell apart as Ghana kept attacking India in the box.

"I expect all to be cheering for us like they have done for us". Having lost their first two games, nothing short of a win will keep them in the competition beyond the group stage.

It's actually pretty close to Reinhardt's emote form previous year , if you just replace pumpkins with fire-hot melted metal. In this mode, you can play as Ana, Genji, Hanzo, McCree, Soldier: 76, Torbjorn, Widowmaker, or Zenyatta in a team of four.

The African powerhouse scored four past the hapless Dheeraj Singh Moirangthem, India's best player at the U17 World Cup. Instead, India chief coach Luis Norton de Matossaw his boys getting bullied around for much of the third game, which ended in a humiliating defeat.

For Acosta, the goal struck home, as his father is Colombian.

The joy was shortlived as Colombia retook the lead soon after...

India need a big win against Ghana on Thursday and hope that U.S. also beat Colombia by a big margin.

Fans turned up in numbers during India's FIFA U-17 World Cup matches and Delhi is not exactly a football-loving city. They need to play in the I-League. For me it's simple: I knew the third game was going to be the hardest.
