Federation Internationale de Football Association U17 WC: Hyundai to provide transport to players, official”

When India take the field against the United States in the opening match of the Fifa Under-17 World Cup in New Delhi on 6 October, it will be the first time the second-most populous nation in the world will be represented at a football World Cup. In the 87 years since, India never managed to qualify for any of the Fifa-affiliated global tournaments, so the 11 players taking the field against the U.S. are set to make history. "We're up against the sort of sides who need no introduction, but we're ready". But when it comes to the biggest tournaments in your sport, you play and win on the basis of experience, and the way you adapt to different situations. There is a big difference in the team that we had for the Youth Cup and the World Cup. We played Colombia last month. The match ended in a goalless draw. If you don't concede goals, you never lose.

Ghana open their campaign against Colombia on October 6, followed by matches against USA (October 9) and India (October 12).

India plays the U.S. in their tournament opener at the Jawaharlal Nehru stadium in Delhi on October 6. We can compare their game to our intensity, focus and organization. AIFF has helped me a lot to develop as a player.

FIFA hasn't ignored the problem for all these years - in fact, stringent measures were already in place for the 2015 U-17 World Cup in Chile, as they were in the World Cups prior, but if reports coming from the FIFA Local Organizing Committee (FIFA LOC) are to be believed, the governing body for football is taking checks up a couple of notches. Describing his current mood, Mato said: "There are three words in my mind for now. We hope to see it becoming an anthem soon!" There are no impossible missions. I am excited. I always had a dream of playing in a FIFA World Cup and now with less than few hours to go, it is going to be reality. But they have been qualifying for this tournament for the last five or six editions. This generation of India is very strong. We can reduce the gap through correct development.

SPN has also given footy fans another reason to look forward to the tournament with the return of its flagship studio show, Football Extraaa.

"But I do know that the Indian team will be absolutely up for this game at home in front of a hopefully packed stadium". That's what I want.

Mr. Pawan Munjal Chairman, MD and CEO, Hero MotoCorp, met with entire Indian Team and the Team Coach, and extended his best wishes to the team, at a special ceremony held here today.

We are all set to leverage the mass appeal for this marquee sports event with multiple language feeds that will bring the tournament closer to the TV viewing audience by presenting the content in a localized format for viewers across markets India.

The 21-member USA team came from Dubai where they had a seven-day camp, preparing for the U-17 World Cup. Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 will kick-off from October 6 and a total of 52 games will be played. "On behalf of everyone at Hero MotoCorp, I wish the team best of luck".
