New Delhi: Hello and welcome to our live coverage from match two in FIFA U-17 World Cup 2017 as we bring you all the action here. The second match of the tournament will be played at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi. Hosts India are up against USA in their Group A match.

India are on the cusp of making history as they welcome USA at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi.

India have never participated in a World Cup before and the fact that they are debuting in the FIFA U-17 World Cup is remarkable in itself.

India have been drawn in Group A alongside USA, Ghana and Colombia. Indian U-17 head coach Luis Norton de Matos remains upbeat of his team’s performance against USA.

“It is difficult to build a strong team in seven months but we have done what we can in this short time. There is a gap  between India and the other teams, say from Europe and South America,” said De Matos.

USA head coach John Hackworth said, “We’ve played India once before, we were successful against them. But it wasn’t in the opening game of the World Cup, it wasn’t them hosting a World Cup. My feeling is that, and from the information I’ve heard, there’s going to be a very loud crowd. They (India) are incredibly athletic and hard-working team. We are going to have to beat the host country in the opening game and that is a difficult challenge.”
