The FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017 is set to make history. Placed in the same group, Ghana scored in each half to run out 2-1 winners then, but Colombia coach Orlando Restrepo wants to take this campaign one game at a time.

The Indian U-17 coach feels that apart from India, the heavyweights are the major contenders for the title but also mentioned - referring to Portugal's Euro 2016 triumph that any team, including India, can take it at the end of the day. "The crowd will play an important role, they can be the 12th man for the team, egging the 11 boys who are fighting on the field". "It is hard I know, but what I am trying to prove that once given same experience, Indian footballers can evolve and play at highest level", he said. However, our players know very well what they are gonna do tomorrow. "They (USA) will be strong in attack and we have to prepare to counter their attack. Players are also involved in the process", he added.

Son of former FIFA World Player of the Year and Liberia great George Weah, Timothy is highly rated back in United States and will be a towering presence in the forward line. Not many people apart from football enthusiasts must be knowing this and 90 per cent of people might be clueless about this event even though it is happening in India. For Indian boys, it will be about showing heart, to exhibit to the world the power of sport to push boundaries.

The Boston Red Sox Clinch the AL East
This will be the Red Sox final chance to get back in this game as the Astros are three outs away from taking home a win in Game 1. Keys for the Red Sox on the series for the offense should be ambush early and don't let the starter settle in.

The stadium, on the eve of a World Cup, has been taken over by security. This is the first step and first moment. I am very excited.

"When I signed for the project, I knew Boris can not play the first game".

The United States has a very talented youth system in place and is expected to go far in this tournament. "There's pressure because the hosts are in our group, but we will try to control everything so that we can play good football and move forward". U.S. coach John Hackworth admitted that a strong support could pose a different challenge for his team: "It is a really tough group and when I look across, playing the hosts in the opener in front of a large crowd on home soil is in itself a huge challenge". When you watch USA playing and we watched a lot, of course, their philosophy is offensive. The present side includes players like Werder Bremen-bound Josh Sargent, who is poised to sign for the Bundesliga club in the January transfer window.
