India showed heart but lacked in skill and quality against a much superior United States of America.

US will next take on Ghana on October 9. Host countries can be tough at World Cups and the usa did its best to not get rattled in a hostile environment.

If the African nation can, so can the Indians.

Apart from a request for potential support from FIFA for a national centre of excellence, Patel will pitch India as a booming football nation to the FIFA Council, which, beyond the bid for the U-20 World Cup, also wants to land the Club World Cup and, on a continental level, the Asian Cup. "They are a more physical team and they are desperate for a win too so it will be a very tough game". We have to be on our toes throughout and focus on the task at hand.

The coach also said that the third goal was punishment for them. "We don't under estimate our rivals but will play according to plan and strength" he said adding that the boys are well aware of the importance of the match. The 16-year old was an absolute livewire on the left flank and he was instrumental in his team's offensive play. Acosta's assist to Carleton late in the game was perhaps the best play of the entire game.

Companies are causing huge numbers of unnecessary deaths simply because they don't acknowledge the need for a work-life balance. Earlier this year, the Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was seeking "to impose a cap on the number of overtime hours people can work".

Sargent drew and converted a penalty kick just after the half-hour mark, while Durkin volleyed home the insurance strike six minutes into the second half off a corner kick that wasn't properly cleared.

Aniket Jadhav brushed aside the pressure factor and stated, "Pressure is always there when you play football". Goalkeeper Dheeraj Singh Moirangthem was quite impressive against a star-studded strike force and along with centre-back Anwar Ali, he was able to stop the trio of Josh Sargent, Ayo Akinola and Tim Weah from scoring more goals.

Physically as well as technically, India lagged.

Saudi King Salman arrives in Russian Federation for first visit
Before the visit, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov described the event as "an historical moment". King Salman may also seek assurances from Moscow that Iran will not have a permanent role in Syria.

India head coach Luís Norton de Matos has vowed that his wards will fight like lions. Playing in their maiden Federation Internationale de Football Association tournament, rank outsiders India were outclassed by a side that was a few notches above the "Boys in Blue". The passing was nowhere near to clinical as compared to the USA. The score that day was not indicative of the way they play and compete.

Having lost their first game 1-0 to pre-tournament favourites Ghana, Colombia are now second from bottom with a negative goal difference. They hustled and bustled their way to India with a last-ditch victory over continental rival Paraguay, but they will still be a handful for the Indians.

"It was our first time playing in front of such a large crowd".
