Historic Moment: India’s First Goal At FIFA-U17 WC


New Delhi: Jeakson heads in to level. Jeakson gets the equaliser for India. Great header and finds the net. The tall Punjabi pulls India level in the 82nd minute. Colombia has defeated India 2-1. A double strike from Juan Penaloza

Jeakson Singh heads the ball in from a corner from Stalin, only for the South Americans to hit back immediately. It’s that man Penalosa again as Carvajal passes it to the no 11 who slides it home to give Colombia the lead again. Indian crowd brought down after that moment of sheer joy. The place was rocking just for a bit but the ecstasy doesn’t last long. India continues to press forward.

India has looked good in patches in the first half and has taken Colombia by surprise on more than one occasion. Abhijit missed a golden opportunity early on for the hosts.
