In the 33 minute the United States finally took the lead after Josh Sargent was brought down by India's Jitendra Singh.

It would have been better if the boys had that experience before the World Cup.

It is the first time the cricket-crazy country of 1.2 billion is playing in a FIFA World Cup game at any level of football.

But India have been dealt a blow even before the tournament has begun, with full-back Boris Singh unavailable due to a suspension he picked up in the final 2016 AFC U16 Championship group game against Saudi Arabia. "We are finding it hard to make the last pass", he said. As the host nation, India will also be participating in the World Cup for the first time.

"We have come here to win the World Cup". Ghana and Colombia will not and that should provide for a more open game and a situation where Acosta will be even more needed and valuable.

Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup match between India and US will be telecast in the channels of Sony Pictures Network.

The FCC announced Saturday that it's approved an experimental license for Project Loon to operate in Puerto Rico. In 2016, a test site was set up in Puerto Rico to launch what the project called "a handful of test balloons".

The second half started with the Indian striker kicking off the ball. He also gave an idea of how they approached the U.S. game saying that the team was set up to defend in their own half and attack on the counter.

In the 84th minute Anwar Ali had the best chance of the night for India but his powerful shot came off the crossbar and as luck would have it Andrew Carleton scored on the counter to net their third of the night.

With the win, the US tops Group A along with Ghana, which opened with a 1-0 win over Colombia. "So we weren't nervous, we were excited to play our game. everyone told us the stadium would be nearly full and we should mentally prepare for the was just as good as I expected". When you are playing in the World Cup and that too against a strong team, you need to score when you get the opportunity. "This is the first step for India in world football", de Matos said.

While the US have been a four-time quarterfinalist and one-time semifinalist, Ghana are undoubtedly the most competitive side, with two crowns and four runners-up finishes. They had distributed passes to a few schools in New Delhi, NGO's and Bureaucrats but giving out free passes on a large scale as this was not expected. It's part of the game, but we were a goal down. It so much looked like Indian side struggled to play an organized and calm game in attack.

Suresh Singh Wangjam, who started the match and put on an impressive show, spoke with the press after Team India held a closed door practice session at one of the practice pitches inside the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium complex. India were no match for the Americans physically and needed goalkeeper Dheeraj Moinganthem to punch the ball out in most set piece situations.

Last month the AIFF said that India will bid for the U-20 World Cup. India's first priority on Friday will be to ensure their defensive organisation is flawless against a side which is very strong offensively.
