US beat host India 3-0 in Under-17 World Cup opener

An Indian laborer works at the Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium one of the venues for the FIFA U-17 World Cup football in Gauhati India Wednesday Oct. 4 2017

In the 51st minute, Chris Durkin's shot from inside the box took a wicked deflection leaving Dheeraj bewildered as United States of America doubled their lead. Then there is attacking midfielder Tim Weah, son of former FIFA "World Player of the Year" and Liberia great George Weah.

In a nation dominated by cricket, badminton and tennis, India is also making its presence felt in football, as it hosts the FIFA Under-17 World Cup which begins on Friday.

Irrespective of how the hosts perform, the tournament is set to boost football in India. If they were overawed, the fears were dispelled after an agonising first quarter when they hardly touched the ball.

Asked how different will be India's outing against Colombia from the USA drubbing, he said, "Against USA, we had a nervy start and the players were shy and could not play their game against a team of the quality of USA". 10': Sargent takes a free-kick for the team, but the Indians successfully defend the shot. He scored the goal from the penalty spot to give the USA a 1-0 lead. The record books show that India have played a football World Cup match.

The second half started with the Indian striker kicking off the ball. We know that they'll put up a tough fight for us. They attacked well in the starting periods but couldn't find the back of the net. Underdog Indian side came out in the second-half to find an equalizer.

The US strikers chose to build the attacks, majority from their territory, while India ran out of ideas in the opposition half.

Nadal outlasts Dimitrov to reach Beijing final
The world No.1 cashed in on another Kyrgios meltdown to seize his sixth title of the season with a 6-2 6-1 victory in Beijing. The victory also further boosts his chances of finishing the year as world No.1 for the first time since 2013.

This was the moment every Indian football fan was waiting for. Years of training, sacking of coaches, loads of money spent on publicity and facility upgrades, and the Indian under-17 football squad loses 0-3 to the USA. IN the first 20 minutes, both the teams got off to a slow starting, with some of the United States of America players aiming for a shot on target, but failing.

While the U.S. have been a four-time quarterfinalist and one-time semifinalist, Ghana are undoubtedly the most competitive side, with two crowns and four runners-up finishes. "The players know what they will be facing tomorrow against the U.S.", said the coach. "It was our first World Cup match and it was history to be playing in India", he said.

84':Goal ! This is going US's way as Andrew Carleton races past Indiuian defenders to make it 3-0. The team must execute the lovely things they learnt during training.

How do I watch India vs Colombia FIFA U-17 World Cup match live?

The United States should have had its third in the 61 minute when Carleton hit a handsome pass down the right side for Ayo Akinola who had only to the keeper to beat but hit a very poor chip with his attempt.
