U-17 World Cup Squad Setting Expectation

The Indian U-17 World Cup Squad, currently on an exposure trip to Germany, defeated FC Ingolstadt 1-0 on Wednesday (August 26, 2015), in attendance of the AIFF General Secretary Mr.Kushal Das, at the DFI Ground in Germany. Following close on the heels of a 4-0 win against SV Wacker Burghausen on August 22, 2015, the Indian colts started the match on a positive note.
Two forty five minutes halves comprised the match and albeit a goalless first half saw both Teams entwine in a battle to gain advantage, it was the Indian contingent which opened the goal scoring tally of the match in the 46th minute. A well-worked move by the Indian contingent, which saw Aniket release a beautiful through ball, was done sheer justice by Aman’s effort on the goal giving the colts a lead early into the second half. The Indian contingent thwarted the opposition’ attack and registered a solitary goal win over the German club.

Furthermore, the Indian U-17 World Cup Squad will also touch Iranian shores in the month of September to play in the AFC U-16 Qualifiers, which are slated to kick-off in Tabriz City.
