The USA had an apparent third goal waved off soon after, when Tim Weah, son of former FIFA World Player of the Year George Weah, was ruled offside before rounding the keeper and finishing, but Carleton scored in similar fashion in the 84th on a counterattack after India had hit the crossbar to secure the result.

The Sikkim boy, who shares his hometown with India great Bhaichung Bhutia, shot to fame with his goal against Brazil in the BRICS tournament.

Mata, however, ended the game prematurely as he received a second yellow card for leading with an arm five minutes into second-half stoppage time. Americans came back in their trademark style by attempting to make it three in the counter attack.

"Now that they have the first experience [of a match], perhaps they start the next game more confidently because they know what to expect".

The 63-year-old openly spoke about his tactical approach, saying that he believes in making sure his side is defensively strong and well organised with holding two solid lines of four when the opposition has the ball. the ball.

India looked more risky with Komal Thatal but the blonde-haired winger needed more support from his teammates if India was to have any chance of coming back into the match. Patel wants to capitalise on the buzz in the Indian game to grow football from the youth level up. The Indian players played a relative offensive game in the second half compared to the first and had a few opportunities to score.

India had won the bid to host the FIFA World Cup 2017 in December 2013 after much apprehension from authorities on whether the preparations would be complete by then, whether more corruption would take place as witnessed at the 2010 Commonwealth Games and even whether India should bid at all considering India's football rankings. India's first priority on Friday will be to ensure their defensive organisation is flawless against a side which is very strong offensively.
