Both Matos and Kiyam know India are placed in a tough group alongside the experienced USA, Colombia and Ghana. The hosts would like to take some inspiration from Niger, another World Cup debutants, who kicked off their campaign in the tournament with a win over North Korea Saturday night. India did not get many chances to score as USA were in attacking mode throughout the match pushing the Indian team into their own half.

Irrespective of how the hosts perform, the tournament is set to boost football in India.

"The one thing that is important for us is that every game, we're going to learn", Matos said.

The first match was played between South American giants Colombia and African powerhouse Ghana. Fans who sing for us, who back us through wins, draws and defeats, trophies and disappointment. 10': Sargent takes a free-kick for the team, but the Indians successfully defend the shot.

"We need to rectify our mistakes and move on, winning and losing are part and parcel of the game".

The longingness to be noticed will again be the main driving force for India as they brace up to face another mighty opponents in Colombia in the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup here on Monday. The visitors created more chances in the second half, and could have scored a couple of more goals quite easily, but that did not matter as the scoreline remained 3-0 at full-time. All those catchphrases about them being "the hardest working team" might have come in handy. India were pushed back in their own half most of the time in the face of incessant United States attack.

Fundacion La Caixa and Criteria also announced they move away from Catalonia to Palma de Mallorca, in the Balearic Islands. Then came the stern message from Spain's King Felipe VI that the Catalan government and parliament were breaking the law.

A hint of bad luck put India two goals behind early in the second half. "So we weren't nervous, we were excited to play our game. everyone told us the stadium would be nearly full and we should mentally prepare for the crowd.it was just as good as I expected". It is the first time they are playing in a tournament of such magnitude. "I am sure the World Cup will be a treat for football lovers", the Prime Minister said. We had pressure in the first game and we gave the U.S. a very tough fight.

For India, the key would be forgetting the US game.

The wishes of Indian football officials and players came true as thousands of football lovers thronged the Jawaharlal Nehru stadium here to witness the world's most popular sport.

As good as Carleton was, Goslin was the player of the game. But those were practice or friendly matches mostly.

"We got the punishment from them". It was one of the best atmosphere I have seen for U-17 World Cup and so everyone should be really proud. None of their predecessor senior teams had such luxury as they had to make do playing lowly club sides.
