India had found their way into the U-17 World Cup by virtue of being the host nation. And after their 3-0 drubbing by the USA, not much hope resided by their side. But the young Indian squad, stunned the home fans with their inspirational piece of footballing skill against Colombia. In fact, that was the very match when Jeakson Singh scored India's first-ever World Cup.
"The boys want to finish the competition on a high with a very good impression. I think people are proud of the way the boys are playing and I am proud as a coach. They want to give not only 100 per cent but 200 per cent tomorrow and we are ready to die for the project (of Indian football)," India coach Luis Norton de Matos said.
