The FIFA U17 World Cup 2017 kicked off today in India and this the first FIFA maiden tournament the India Nation is hosting and it’s a great moment seeing the India National team kicking off the match ball.
The Indian U17 football team put up a spirited fight against the United States of America on the opening day of the FIFA U17 World Cup but they were always the weaker one, crashing to 0-3 defeat at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi.

Against players with far greater exposure, many of them playing in leagues, India were impressive in periods of play. Definite future here
