Hyundai officially hands over cars for Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup

FIFA U-17 World CUp U-17 World Cup Salt Lake Stadium U-17 World Cup venues Football news Indian Express

Captain Amarjit Singh sounded ecstatic and said: "On behalf of the team, I can say that the AIFF has already planned to get our families to Delhi and host them so that they can watch our games".

The players had a feel of the floodlights at the pitch just adjacent to the stadium which will host all of India's three matches on October 6, 9 and 12.

In a 15-second video on his official Twitter handle, Kohli said, "Our U-17 boys are taking part in the U-17 FIFA World Cup which starts on October 6".

"The level of the Indian U-17s is very high and I want them to enjoy every moment they play in the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup". After that, the Ghanaians did not score again in regulation time, drawing 0-0 with Guinea in their final group game and with Niger in the semi-finals, winning on penalties to reach the final, where they lost 1-0 to Mali.

The Indian Colts face United States of America on October 6, before locking horns with Colombia and Ghana on October 9 and October 12 respectively at New Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium. Colombia, the first team to arrive in India, were also undergoing a practice session at the same training ground. The other venues for the tournament are Navi Mumbai, Margao in Goa, Guwahati and Kochi.

For long, the lack of world class infrastructure has been an impediment to the development of football in the country, before things started to change for the better with the first-ever FIFA tournament coming to India.

India will make a comeback to the finals of a FIFA competition, breaking a hiatus of 57 years since appearing in four consecutive Olympic football tournaments from 1948 to 1960.

The Kerala football fans are set to witness yet another tournament giant during the World Cup, in a Group C encounter between Guinea and Germany.
