When you are on the same flight as him, what else can one talk about if not football.
The India vs Colombia FIFA U-17 World Cup match will be played at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, New Delhi. In their maiden World Cup appearance, India were blanked 0-3 by the US on Friday, and the coach was not pleased with the result. Where did they lose the plot?

Matos also has the option of playing Rahim Ali as a striker - Ali came on in the second half against U.S. and was involved in a couple of good moves going forward. They initiated their attacks mostly from the left side of the pitch.
Since Aniket was unable to make his desired impact against the U.S. and the absence of a poacher was felt, the duo of Aniket and Naorem could mould the attack for India, and they will be in charge to pierce the Colombian defence.
The AFC President also hailed the fans who watched India's match against United States of America, saying this provided a good start for the Finals, and reflected the growing popularity of football in India.
So it was very hard to stay in touch with our families and while we were leaving for the tournament they were anxious.
