New Delhi : India’s debut at FIFA competition ended in a 3-0 loss after the FIFA U-17 World Cup hosts fell to USA in New delhi on Friday. A passionate crowd at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium roared the home side on throughout the duration of this historic match for Indian football. However, it was John Hackworth’s Stars and Stripes that showed their qualities in getting their tournament account off to a winning start.
USA’s match winner came from the penalty spot on the half-hour mark. Josh Sargent picked up where he left off at the U-20 world Cup in Korea Republic earlier this year by converting the spot-kick after the American captain was fouled in the box by Jitendra singh.
