PM Modi welcomes the world for India's first FIFA tournament

U.S. open their campaign against India on October 6, followed by matches against Ghana on October 9 and Colombia on October 12.

"I am so sure that the boys are going to go out and give their best".

Under normal circumstances, in any multi-nation tournaments, host nations are the favourites to win.

Speaking to TNT-The Northeast Today, Eugeneson Lyngdoh, a renowned football professional from Meghalaya and member of the Indian Senior Team when asked about his take on the tournament and message to the U-17 team says "This is the World cup and it can not get bigger that this, in this age category there is nothing better. United States of America is a strong team but we want to take that small opportunity and fight for it", he said ahead of the match. "I think everybody will be alright".

India has never been known to be a force in any professional sport other than cricket but is the host nation in this competition, which could drive the team to a successful campaign.

The measure was confirmed after five time champions, Nigeria have bombed out of qualifying after they lost 26 squad members who were found to be over-age in August past year. "We have to be strong in defence", de Matos said.

To fructify the hopes that this could be a watershed moment for Indian football, the team will have to produce some scintillating stuff. Every coach is preparing very well.

India are relative minnows and it will be trial by fire for India to play that quality of opposition, especially as they lack the requisite experience.

"It's very important that players enjoy the game and play with pressure (of expectations) off their shoulders". We were prepared for him not playing the first match and we have a replacement for him. They are a physical side also and they worked very hard.

For the first time in the history of Federation Internationale de Football Association world tournaments, Indian team is going to make a debut. World Cup organisers did not comment on the Greenpeace report. In Europe, Spain and Germany are strong. Nigeria, which won the last two titles, did not qualify, leaving Brazil, Spain, the United States and Mali as favourites. While there have been new additions to the squad in the months that followed the game, those 10 players will be eager to get one over the Young Stars and Stripes later today.

"StarTimes acquired the broadcast rights of these sporting events, including the FIFA World Cup in over 48 territories in Africa, and other league games such as the Serie A, Bundesliga, French Ligue 1, Chinese Super League and Eredivisie to ensure that our subscribers across the globe are satisfied", Elegbede said.
