  • Must-win scenario beckons India

The Charity Stars player (Ayiah) was crucial to Ghana qualifying for the 2017 Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup bagging four goals at the 2017 Africa U-17 Cup of Nations qualifying event last May in Gabon.

Two-time champions Ghana edged past Colombia 1-0 in their opening match in Group A of the Under-17 World Cup in India.

Colombia defeated India 2-1 in Monday's other match. In recognition of the increasing excitement about the attractive game in India, "Football Takes Over" was the first and most fitting choice as the official slogan for the tournament.

Sadiq Ibrahim scored the all-important goal as Ghana ran away with three full points in the tournament opener at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium.

"I was very disappointed in our style of play because that is not how we play". We take it that all teams in this tournament are strong.

Ghana and US have met twice before in the U-17 World Cup, with the Black Starlets claiming 2-0 wins in both 1995 in Quito and 1999 in Auckland.

Emmanuel Toku created another chance for the Africans in the 73rd minute when his through into the Colombia penalty box found Eric Ayah whose attempt was blocked by Mier.

He said StarTimes will be showcasing the best of these World Cup football actions live from the various match centres in Europe and elsewhere to subscribers in Nigeria. "Facilities are fantastic, but we hope we get used to the food before the end of the competition", Kwasi said.

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

It's a long way to the final on October 28, but Kwasi has already set his sights on the title, having tipped his team to go all the way ever since the draw ceremony in Mumbai in July.
