However, India have lost both their matches, against US and Colombia.

Despite Colombia taking the lead, India still maintained their organisation and came close to scoring twice - KP Rahul missed target with a close range header and Nongdamba Naorem missed a glorious chance from inside the box after a nice run and layoff by Aniket Jadhav.

The two-time world champions could be facing an early exit from the tournament if they lose the game by a three-goal margin, and Colombia beat the US by two unanswered goals in the other match.

Asked whether supporters should expect more goals after crying of wastefulness in the United States of America defeat, the former Heart of Lions trainer replied: "When you come to training we do a lot of scoring exercise but that is football for you sometimes you don't understand what happens but we are hoping things get right as we moving along". According to the format, the best four teams positioned third among six groups qualify. "We'll do the same exact process to get ready for Colombia and see how it goes".

But, Indian can still progress to next round with some help from other teams. Now we want to show we can win against them.

"Ghana are possibly the strongest team in the group and our biggest challenge will be to stop their two wingers from making those risky runs into the box".

Ryan Bounds, on the other hand, has been blocked by both OR senators, who claim that Trump didn't consult with them on the choice. According to the official site for United States Courts, there are now 149 vacancies.

As the Portuguese coach stressed throughout the build-up to the tournament, India did keep their two backlines - defence and midfield - close to each other, thereby not allowing much space for the opposition to work with. The Manipur-born custodian has impressed the fans with his saves.

Jeakson Singh created history against Colombia when he became the first Indian goal scorer in the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup - his bullet header left the Colombia custodian stunned and crashed into the back of the net.

"That's why I'm saying tomorrow's game will be very crucial, they have improved and definitely they will improve more than they did on Monday, Fabin concluded". India may be without influential pair Amarjit Kiyam, the captain, and Anwar Ali, central defender, due to injuries. With the India coach hinting at new faces in the line-up, both could sit out.

For Bilashini and her ailing husband, who suffered a stroke in 2015, seeing their son score India's first goal is a dream come true.

Ghana, with a win and loss, are in third in Group A. In the win over Colombia, the Black Starlets were in great form. You need to feel you are playing in India and let them feel that we are playing in our own country.
