In the last minutes of the first half, Ghana skipper Eric Aiyah succeeded in breaching Indian defence and scored the first goal of the match. The Indians played their hearts out in the final Group A game but could not match the energy that a formidable Ghana displayed throughout the game. But in the 67th minute Colombia took the lead after Penaloza's stunning right-footer from a free-kick curled into the right bottom of the American goal.

US restored parity in the 24th minute when Andrew Carleton brilliantly ran in from the right and into the box before sending the ball to the waiting George Acosta.

Colombia and U.S. were tied on goal difference too, plus-2 but the head-to-head result forced the South Americans to pip United States for the second place. Mali are now placed second to Paraguay (9 points from 3 matches) and both teams have progressed, leaving behind New Zealand (1 point) and Turkey (1 point). Colombia substitute Yadir Meneses came close to scoring the third goal in the 71stminute, but his left-footed shot was brilliantly saved by Justin Garces who tipped the ball over the goal.

It was a ideal start for Colombia as striker Vidal scored in the third minute to provide a crucial lead.

Fatah, the more moderate of the two groups, previously controlled Gaza but was ousted by Hamas a decade ago, leaving Palestine split in two.

Colombia put it beyond USA's reach with an 87th minute strike by Caicedo, who latched on to a pass from Penaloza from the left. Ghana also needed a win to be sure of a top two finish in the group and hence an automatic knock-out berth, prompting them to keep the Indian citadel under seize throughout the match. There's still a possibility for India to qualify even after being rock bottom of Group A. After a heavy defeat against U.S. and a nail-biting finish against Colombia, India are left without points and a negative goal difference (GD).

The USA entered Thursday as winners of two straight at the World Cup, beating India 3-0 before edging Ghana 1-0. The Indian team might have succumbed to a second defeat at the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup on Monday night, but what happened at the 82nd minute of the match will remain etched in history books forever.
