Margao : Indian U-17 World Cup team is working hard to fine tune their skills before they leave for New Delhi on Sept 28 to play against US, Ghana and Colombia in the group A league matches, reports PTI.

The Indian team play their inagural match against US on October 6 and coach Luis Norton de Matos is looking for a positive result.

“The difference between our team and the rest of the teams is enormous, but if we believe in ourselves we can create impact in the world cup,” said Matos.

“The boys have worked hard during the last few months, made progress and played some very good matches. We have expectation from this World Cup, an experience which is completely new to the players.”

Matos said India did not play enough matches against national teams but the performance against Chile should hold them in good stead.
