The USA U-17 men's national team began its quest for a world title by easing to a 3-0 win over World Cup host nation India on Friday. India are on the brink of qualifying for the 2019 continental tournament with a qualifier against Macau coming up next week.

Debutants India have been placed in Group A along side Colombia, two-time winners Ghana and the US. India will be playing all its Group Stage matches at the Nehru stadium in New Delhi.

FOR THE FIRST TIME since the loss to US, a member of India's U-17 squad faced the media and addressed the game, as well as the plan for the upcoming games. Acosta can be streaky but he made a strong case as to why he should start in the No. 10 position when the games become a lot harder after today. The US attack tried to find leakages in the Indian defense. "We (midfield) have to give them the ball". "Every match we play is to win and if we win against Colombia we will be creating history", Matos stressed.

Indian coach himself looked frustrated by the Indian performance. But India did not have defenders back to guard against a quick counterattack.

The 16-year old refused to comment when asked if competitive experience was lacking in the squad but did talk about the fact that the World Cup is played at a high level where all mistakes were likely to be punished, "At this level, when you make a small mistake, they punished us". It is the first time they are playing in a tournament of such magnitude.

"We enjoyed last night" was followed by "we don't want to disappoint the crowd" when midfielder Suresh Singh, still recovering from the adrenaline rush, came out to speak to the media. They theselves will be seen as futures stars of Indian football.
