Indian Colts achieve new high, registers 2nd straight win by 12-2 of European Tour

Indian Colts achieve new high, registers 2nd straight win by 12-2 of European Tour

Indian U-17 Team created a sort of record for themselves as they dumped Hungarian club side Grund 1986 FC in Budapest 12-2 to stretch their winning run on their ongoing European exposure tour to two games.

Their 10-goal win is the highest margin of victory ever since the Under-17s started playing together in preparation for the FIFA Under-17 World Cup, India 2017.

Despite being 0-1 down, Indian colts bounced back incredibly by not just taking a lead, the team literally thrashed the Grund’s defence.

Grund goal came in the 13th minute. A quickfire brace from Nongdamba Naorem completed India’s comeback before captain Sanjeev Stalin curled in to make it 3-1 to the Colts.

At 39th  minute when India was cruising to victory with 3-1, Grund pulled back one goal  to make it 3-2. But, forward Rahul Praveen replied with a quick goal to restore the Colts’ two-goal advantage heading into half-time.

India continued to score goals in the second half as well with Khumanthem Ninthoinganba, Jeakson Singh, Komal Thatal, Shubham Sarangi and Aniket Jadhav getting on the scoresheet. Ninthoinganba, Komal and Shubham continued the rout after the 80-minute mark by netting their respective braces to make it 12-2.

No doubt, under their new coach Norton de Matos Indian team has come a long way.

This humiliation of Grund will surely boost the Indian team, who will play in the FIFA Under-17 World Cup later this year as hosts.

India Colts had been unlucky to get knocked out of the Lazio Cup after finishing level with Lega Pro XI and Lazio on points, but today they were back to winning ways in some style.
