U-17 World Cup: India Coach Demands Early Goal To Mount Pressure
LISTEN OCT 12, 2017

Head coach of India's Under-17, Luis Norton de Matos has called on his players to take up their chances and get an early goal to put pressure on Ghana.

Matos wants them to score the first goal on the morrow to put the opponents under pressure as India chase an improbable dream of qualifying for the Round of 16 in the Fifa Under-17 World Cup.

Said, Matos, as the team underwent preparations here, 'I had a meeting with the boys this morning and they believe that they can win the game. For me, it is very important. You have to believe first and that is how you win.

"I would like to see my team score first tomorrow and put pressure. We have suffered in the last game (against Colombia)… in one minute, there were two goals and it is normal because they are not used to such situations. It was emotional and in those emotions, they made mistakes.

"For me, the winning mindset is important and that is how I want them to be. If they don't win and still give their best, I will still congratulate them.'
