Atletico Paranaense U-17 side proved to be too strong for their Indian counterparts in the second match of the ongoing U-17 International Tournament. India were on the receiving end as the host team secured a 4-0 win today (December 13, 2016) on the second matchday of the tournament.
Atletico Paranaense started on a high tempo and they did not need more than 15 minutes to find the back of the net. 4 minutes later, they doubled the lead from a long well-taken corner.
Nicolai quickly tried to reshuffle his strategies by introducing Abhijit in the place of Aman Chetri.
At the stroke of the half-time, the Atletico Paranaense striker headed another goal from a looping cross from the right flank.
Nicolai opted for double substitution in the second half in the likes of Shubham and Sarif, having withdrawn Aniket and Sanjeev respectively but that could not deter the inevitable.
The home team nailed the final one in Indian´s coffin in the 10th minute of the second half to take all three points home.
India are slated to face Uruguay National Team in the last fixture of the round robin stage at 2200 hrs tomorrow (December 14, 2016).
