Under 17 : A Brilliant Display By India Against Uruguay
Indian colts showed the character against the Uruguay U-17 National Team in their last group match in the Atletico Paranaense U-17 International Tournament, before going down to a narrow 1-2 defeat to the South American heavyweights.
After conceding two goals in either side of the break, Komal Thatal reduced the difference and kept the chances alive for the blues, but the tight Uruguayan defence contained the Indian attackers till the final whistle.
This was a much better performance from the Blue colts as compared to the previous two results in the Brazilian tour. Uruguayan side played a much better football as they displayed their dominance in either side of the half. Colts wasted several chances to make the score level.
India are slated to face the two-time FIFA World Cup Champions La Celeste once again in the first Semi-final at 2200 hrs IST on December 16, 2016.
