Stalin made a good run forward to feed Komal, who then played the ball to Abhijit. The US attack tried to find leakages in the Indian defense.

India got another chance to open their account in the 82nd minute when Anwar Ali got some space near the second post to shoot home Komal's corner-kick.

The U.S. must play better to beat GhanaThis was a good win. It was very important for us to score a goal during this phase of the game.

India coach Luis Norton de Matos thinks more games will raise team's game in the future.

It added, "We will be working as hard as possible with all facility owners to ensure that drinking water is readily available for all spectators from here on".

Komal nearly pulled one back from India in the second half.

After a first half in which India rarely got a feel of the ball, the host nation produced an improved performance in the second half. Americans came back in their trademark style by attempting to make it three in the counter attack.

Asked how different will be India's outing against Colombia from the USA drubbing, he said, "Against USA, we had a nervy start and the players were shy and could not play their game against a team of the quality of USA". The first to land in India for the tournament, Colombia have acclimatised themselves with the conditions, though they started the tournament with a reverse.

The wishes of Indian football officials and players came true as thousands of football lovers thronged the Jawaharlal Nehru stadium here to witness the world's most popular sport. The US was up with two goals lead after this goal against the hosting side.

"We need to rectify our mistakes and move on", he maintained. They had distributed passes to a few schools in New Delhi, NGO's and Bureaucrats but giving out free passes on a large scale as this was not expected.

According to India's tournament local organizing committee director Javier Ceppi, this will be the first time that India is hosting a Federation Internationale de Football Association tournament.

Now to fault defender Jitendra Singh for the foul to concede a penalty and the resultant goal is easy, but then one could see an element of gamesmanship by the United States captain making it look abit dramatic, though it did not look all that apparent. Winning and losing are part and parcel of the game. "Every match we play is to win and if we win against Colombia we will be creating history", Matos stressed. In the end, I'm sure it will be a great opening match for the tournament. "In time, there is definitely an opportunity in India for soccer to become a more popular sport", said Gulati, chairman of the Organising Committee for the U-17 World Cup.
