Luis Norton worked his magic as his side emerged victorious over Italians. Final score India 2-0 Italy.

India u17 has defeated 4 times world champions Italy in a friendly match for a score of 2-0. It was a dominating performance from Indian teenagers, goals from Abhijeet Sarkar and Rahul helped the visitors to cruise past Azzurri’s.

Indian colts started the game on a high note, pressuring Italian defence from the early minutes. The visitors managed to create several half chances but failed to find the back of Azzurri net.

Abhijith sarkar broke the deadlock in 31st minute when his cross took a deflection and went in. India had chances to extend the lead in the second half but couldn’t convert them.

Second half was much more entertaining as the visitors tried to extend their lead. A goal cushion has certainly lifted the mojo of Indian players, they were all over again. Rahul extended the lead in the 80th minute and helped India to secure their victory over Italians.
