"We have shown the world that we belong on the same page as them and now we want to show that we can win against them", said Luis Norton de Matos, Head Coach, Indian U-17 World Cup Team. They hit the bar which could have resulted in a goal. To me, the team is a dark horse, but I'm proud to see them compete against teams that have had so many more advantages in terms of advanced training, equipment and exposure. "Tomorrow's match is a crucial match". But irrespective of playing against Ghana, we shouldn't go into the match with a purely defensive mind set. In India's favour will be the fact that Ghana have been profligate with their chances.

India could be playing its swansong at the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World cup here on Thursday as it hosts Ghana in the final Group A fixture, knowing only a miracle will see it progress through to the round-of-16.
