India’s first U 17 FIFA world cup

India’s first U 17 FIFA world cup


Today:- Sep – In a few weeks, India will host its first global football tournament, the 2017 Fifa Under-17 World Cup. It will be a landmark occasion which promises to boost the status of football in this country and also enhance the global profile of Indian sport.
It will signal the end of a long wait too. In the 77 football world cups held so far—including men’s and women’s events across senior and age-group football, over 87 years—India has neither hosted nor participated in one. All this will change on 6 October, when this year’s edition of the biennial Under-17 World Cup will kick off simultaneously with matches in New Delhi and Mumbai, two of the six host cities chosen for the tournament.
As the host, India have directly entered the 24-nation event with the other teams qualifying from their respective continental competitions.
The All India Football Federation’s (AIFF) approach to fielding a national team for the World Cup has been peculiar, albeit necessary, when you factor in the absence of a structured youth system in the country. It has involved recruiting foreign coaches, scouting young talent over multiple phases and flying this selected group of players around the globe for “exposure trips” in search of better-quality opponents and year-round competitive games, which are currently unavailable in India.
Tours to Germany, Spain, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), South Africa, Luxembourg, France, Norway, Italy, Hungary, Brazil, Portugal, Russia and Mexico have seen the U-17 team play over 60 friendly games against foreign clubs and national sides, as well as participate in competitive tournaments in preparation of what is to come.
