Elsewhere in Group A, Ghana made a winning start to their campaign with a 1-0 victory over Colombia at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium. Brazil are favourites for the World Cup. This tournament is taking place in six cities Delhi, Mumbai, Goa, Kolkata, Kochi and Guwahati. Had the Indian players had better finishing abilities, we would have seen an Indian goal or two scored yesterday.

What time does the live coverage of the India vs Colombia FIFA U-17 World Cup match start? Fans who sing for us, who back us through wins, draws and defeats, trophies and disappointment.

Retaining a qualifying position is going to be a monumental task for the Indian U-17 team as they face fierce competition in their group. We also lost to Argentina, which had the likes of Carlos Tevez, Javier Mascherano and Pablo Zabaleta but the game was very tight.

Their Group A opener against United States of America in the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup had plenty of build-up and excitement. Though he was once guilty of wasting a chance in the second half when his lob was off target. As it turned out, the ball slammed against the crossbar, was retrieved by an American defender, and turned forward in a counterattack that caught the Indians flat-footed and saw them fall to 0-3.

The 16-year old refused to comment when asked if competitive experience was lacking in the squad but did talk about the fact that the World Cup is played at a high level where all mistakes were likely to be punished, "At this level, when you make a small mistake, they punished us".

But the ricochet from Ali's shot hitting the post led to usa counter, at the end of which Andrew Carleton made it 3-0 to put things beyond India's reach.

She said she was devastated by the carnage and would cooperate with authorities as they struggle to get inside Paddock's mind. They said, "We haven't been able to determine if there has been anybody else in the room besides him".

While the United States of America 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.

So it was very hard to stay in touch with our families and while we were leaving for the tournament they were anxious. As midfielders, both players are capable enough to take on the opposition and are expected to play a key role on the field.

When will India vs Colombia match be played?

As good as Carleton was, Goslin was the player of the game. The team must execute the handsome things they learnt during training. From Africa are Ghana, Guinea, Mali and Niger who reached the semi-finals of the 2017 CAF Africa U-17 Cup of Nations in Gabon to take Africa's spots at India 2017.

The United States should have had its third in the 61 minute when Carleton hit a attractive pass down the right side for Ayo Akinola who had only to the keeper to beat but hit a very poor chip with his attempt.
