"We have forgotten the result against the USA. Tomorrow is a new day and we´ll fight our best for a result,” Luis Norton de Matos, Head Coach of Indian U-17 World Cup Team stated some 24 hours before taking on Colombia in India´s second match of FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017 at the JLN Stadium, New Delhi tomorrow (October 9, 2017). The kick-off is slated for 8pm.
“I would like to win. The boys are looking very focused and concentrated. We know that they´ll put up a tough fight for us. We´re ready for that,” he added. "I´m sure that they´ll be fighting until the last second of the match. They´re really focused and they´ll fight tooth and nail to get a good result."
Meanwhile, Colombia went down to Ghana by a solitary goal in the Group A opener of the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017.
"I´ve watched a lot of their videos. I watched the first 25 minutes of the first match as well. They´ll impose a strong physical challenge for us,” Matos maintained. "We´re well organised right now and we have to be apt on that to swing it in our way. We must play with our stronger points and I feel, the team-organisation is best right now."
He foresees nothing less than a taxing match but pronounced that a minor mistake can cost a lot. "The players are confident and know what is expected from them. We can´t make any mistake and we have to keep a good pressure on them throughout."
