FIFA U-17 World Cup 2017: Prime Minister Narendra Modi reached the Jawaharlal Nehru stadium in New Delhi to watch the FIFA Under 17 World Cup today and honoured various past icons of the game. Earlier in the day, Prime Minister took to Twitter to send his best wishes to the Indian team will play against USA today. PM wrote, “A warm welcome and best wishes to all teams taking part in the @FIFAcom. I am sure #FIFAU17WC will be a treat for football lovers.” Today, India’s young guns are all prepared to take the field against the US in the third match of the FIFA Under 17 World Cup 2017. They are set to create history today. India qualified automatically for the event as hosts.
On paper, US is certainly the stronger side with most players having the experience of playing in the Major League Soccer youth teams. India will have the home advantage and captain Amarjit Singh and his team-mates have promised to be competitive at the showpiece event.
Further details awaited.
