It appeared India were headed for a draw when Jeakson Singh headed in off a corner, but the joy was short lived as Penaloza slammed the victor within a minute.

Coming back from defeats in the first game against U.S. and Ghana respectively, India and Colombia will be looking to bounce back in Group A. "But, we proved today we can play at this level and I am proud of the commitment the players showed on the pitch", Matos told the post-match press conference.

"It's going to be a new game on Monday, both teams will start from zero and look for their first points".

The defence saw Boris Thangjam returning to the starting XI.

India midfielder Ninthoinganba Meetei, who looked to use the flanks well with his pace and agility was brought down by the physically stronger Colombian players easily.

The first three days of the competition, so far, has produced lots of goals, and some tight affair between top teams, making it an interesting tournament in the past three days.

In the 82nd minute of the game, Jeakson Singh leaped off the turf and into Indian sporting history. The Indian fans took to Twitter to celebrate the magnificent goal. Colombia took it to their advantage and advanced time and again on the flanks, where the hosts left spaces wide open for the opponents to attack.

India scored when Jeakson, the tallest player in the side, headed in a Sanjeev Stalin corner, sending the whole stadium into a state of delirium.

The celebration of India's first ever FIFA World Cup goal did not last long as Peneloza timed his run to perfection and scored the victor for Colombia in the very next minute.

They were on the ball from the word go and even though the Colombians had more of possession, India very much managed to make their presence felt. On Friday too, India had failed to score after the ball hit the woodwork.
