New Delhi: Jeakson Singh created history in the match against Colombia on Monday when he scored India's first goal at a FIFA World Cup.
The hosts, who are playing for the first time in the FIFA U-17 World Cup, were however, unlucky to concede a goal within a minute of scoring their first against Colombia.
The Indian colts lost 3-0 to the USA in the opening match last week before going down 2-1 to the South Americans.
There is still a marginal hope for India U-17 to qualify for the Round of 16 which also depends on other results to go in their favour.
India need to secure at least a 4-0 win against Ghana on Thursday and hope that the USA beat Colombia by a good margin as well.
The hosts can also hope to qualify as one of the lucky third placed teams if they do not secure a big-margin win against Ghana.
However difficult it looks for the Indian side to secure a spot in the next round, they would bank on the support from fans, who would be hoping for a miracle, as they play Ghana in Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, New Delhi.
FIFA U-17 World Cup match between India and Ghana is on Thursday, October 12.
The live broadcast of the FIFA U-17 World Cup match between India and Ghana will start at 8 PM (IST).
The FIFA U-17 World Cup match between India and Ghana will be broadcast on Sony Network and DD Sports.
The FIFA U-17 World Cup match between India and Ghana will be played at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi.
