Ghana beat Colombia in Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup opener

Ghana clashed with the United States of America in a battle for the top spot in group A of the 2017 Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup in Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium.

Twice champions Ghana opened their FIFA Under-17 World Cup campaign on a winning note, beating Colombia 1-0 in a Group A match at the iconic Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi on Friday evening. It was end-to-end stuff with Colombia slightly dominating initially before Ghana stamped their authority as the match went on. Though Ghana could not quite conjure up the same magic, which saw them lift two titles, in the following years, they still managed to reach the final on two occasions.

Ghana are one of the traditional powerhouses in the U-17 age bracket and only enhanced their reputation with a scintillating display.

"I'm a bit disappointed in the play because that's not how we play".

In all, Ghana have reached four out of five World Cup finals and finished third in the 1999 edition.

This time around, they are entering the tournament on the back of some very impressive performances in the Africa U-17 Cup of Nations.

The Starlets would need a win against the U.S. to secure qualification to the next stage of the competition.

"Team Colombia is looking forward (to qualifying) for Russian Federation, but this is a World Cup for me as well". We are looking forward to play a good game. "If I top the goal scoring charts, I will be happy, although I am a defender", he said, with his last five words evincing peals of laughter from the press. There's a lot of sunshine in Ghana, and there's a lot of sunshine here.
