India's captain for the FIFA U-17 World Cup Amarjit Singh said that his players have worked extremely hard in the last couple of years and are not afraid of facing tough opponents in the upcoming mega event, starting 6 October.

Under the new Portuguese coach Luis Norton de Matos we have learnt a lot of new things. The foreign tour has also helped us to be mentally tough against tough opponents. And now we are not afraid to play against the tough opponents.

India have been placed in Group A in the FIFA U-17 World Cup alongside USA, Colombia and Ghana.


The hosts will face USA on 6 October, followed by Colombia and Ghana on 9 and 12 October respectively at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi.

Our plan is to put the best foot forward for the upcoming tournament and play good matches. We have worked really hard and are capable of playing well. We can build a good image of our team in the next few weeks during the tournament.
Amarjit Singh

The Indian team will leave for New Delhi on Wednesday.
