The FIFA Under 17 World Cup 2017 is almost over for team India as they lost both their matches against USA and Colombia. Amarjit and his boys looked strong against the South Americans but failure to convert crucial chances into goals resulted in a 2-1 loss. With no chance to qualify for the next round, the Indian team will now take on Ghana in their last group match on Thursday evening. Apart from the result, the last match was a perfect epitome for what football stands for. There would be no one across the nation who sat comfortably on their seat in the period between 80th and 84th minute. Jeakson Singh scored the first Indian goal at a FIFA event with a perfect header from a delivery. The celebration of the equalizer was not even finished when Juan Penaloza scored his second of the day, following which there was a pin drop silence at the JLN stadium.
It just was not India’s day who created some breathtaking chances but could not convert them into goals. Dheeraj Singh was the best player on the pitch and made some eye-popping saves to keep the Indian chances alive. The Indian team showed in this match that they have what it takes to challenge the big sides. Colombia’s defence was leaky, as was apparent from their previous match against Ghana and India exploited it. They need to improve in more areas than one but this team showed Indian football’s potential.
