India go down 0-4 against Ghana : FIFA U-17 World Cup

India’s run at the FIFA U-17 World Cup 2017 came to an end on Thursday as they went down 0-4 against Ghana, who took matters into their hand towards the end, scoring two goals in quick succession. India were anyway a weak team infront of the mighty African side but the way they held their fort in the first half is commendable. India realised their dream of playing in the FIFA World Cup last week as they took centrestage against USA in the first match followed by a heartbreaking loss to Colombia. With the loss, India ended their stint in their first FIFA World Cup ever. What India lacked in skills has been covered up with spirit so far. Here is how it happened:

FULL-TIME: The game was prove of how India need to train a lot more to reach the level of posing a strong competiton against world-class teams like Ghana and Colombia. The hosts started strongly, created decent chances. Even though they could not convert any, the Indian lads maintained a strong defence that was only broken with few minutes of the first half remaining. Second half was a different story altogether. Ghana captain Eric Ayiah completed his brace, before getting substituted by Richard Danso, who scored the third goal for Ghana. The embarrassing defeat became even more humiliating when almost immediately, Emmanuel Toku scored the fourth goal to end India’s run at the FIFA U-17 World Cup.

85′ GOALS! They happened so quickly. After Eric Ayiah’s brace, the Ghana captain was replaced by Richard Danso, who came with a new energy that resulted in him scoring the third goal for the visitors. While the hosts were recovering from the third goal, Ghana decided to humiliate India further by adding another goal to take 4-0 lead, thanks to Emmanuel Toku.
