The Portuguese tactician stressed that his team lacks in competitive experience compared to their opponents.

India U-17's opening day efforts were in vain as US clinched a dominating 3-0 win over the hosts to register three points in Group A of the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup opener held at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Delhi on Friday. "I would like to win. But I would like to see a 2-1 scoreline in order to fight for the result. and yes I am not happy with the result", he added.

Asked about the United States game and its side-effects on the team's preparations, Wangjam said the 3-0 scoreline was not good but it was part of the game and that the team had already put that loss behind them. I watched the first 25 minutes of the first match as well. However what could have been 2-1 soon turned 3-0 as the usa took advantage.

When asked about the environment to an elder couple - Dhrub Mitra and Laxmi Mitra, they said: "We are here to support India". The boys are looking very focused and concentrated.

The gaffer rued the individual mistakes that resulted in the goals, but stressed that technology would have had saved his team. It also was a fantastic shot from Durkin. The next Asian Cup will be the first edition in a 24-team format. Led by goalkeeper Dheeraj Singh, the Indian backline exceeded expectations as they fended off quite a few threats from the opposition in the first-half.

"When I signed for the project, I knew Boris can not play the first game". Sunil Chhetri himself told us that he would give 15 years of his career to play at a World Cup. They are good side and their counter attack was good which caused many problems for us. Colombia will hence be facing that have been made wiser by that 3-0 defeat and with practically nothing to lose.

India had won the bid to host the FIFA World Cup 2017 in December 2013 after much apprehension from authorities on whether the preparations would be complete by then, whether more corruption would take place as witnessed at the 2010 Commonwealth Games and even whether India should bid at all considering India's football rankings. "We plan to show the world that we are on the same page as them", de Matos said. "If they (Colombia) have to advance it is an obligation to score".

India got another chance to open their account in the 82nd minute when Anwar Ali got some space near the second post to shoot home Komal's corner-kick. We have two different solutions and we will work very hard on this.

Manohar Parrikar the cheif minister of Goa, Also welcomed the team and gave his best wishes for the team.
