Ghana arrives in Delhi for U-17 FIFA World Cup

The players were training at the Heritage School Ground in Gurgaon earlier before they shifted base to New Delhi.

Commenting on the occasion, Pawan Munjal, CMD, Hero MotoCorp Ltd, said, "It is indeed heartening to see the Indian U-17 football team completely geared up to take on the world in the upcoming FIFA U-17 World Cup". While it will be difficult to make an immediate impact in their maiden World Cup appearance, the Boys in Blue are expected to fight hard as they will be having the backing of home crowd. Goalkeeper Dheeraj Singh - the last line of defence for India, is likely to be among the more busier players during the three games. Led by 16-year-old Amarjit Singh Kiyam, the boys have had quite a few exposure tours in the recent past in tune-up to what will be a landmark tournament in the Indian football history. Hyundai has lined up exclusive engagement activities and merchandise distribution for its customers around Federation Internationale de Football Association U17 World Cup at its dealerships in the six host cities in India.

For long, the lack of world class infrastructure has been an impediment to the development of football in the country, before things started to change for the better with the first-ever FIFA tournament coming to India.

The Mission 11 million, a football initiative aimed at taking the game to almost 15,000 schools in 37 cities across the country, was set rolling by former sports minister Vijay Goel and All India Football Federation (AIFF) president Praful Patel at the Nehru Stadium here earlier this year. Their first match is against team USA. It is an unbelievable moment in Indian Football's history and everyone associated with it should be proud of it. The Ghana team, on the other hand, reached here from Abu Dhabi where they had based for training ahead of the U-17 World Cup. These players will inspire generations to come.
