Ghana Vs India: Tahitian Referee Zitouni To officiate clash

Zitouni who was a supporting referee at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup gets the opportunity to handle his first game at the FIFA U-17 World Cup.

Infact the Luis Norton de Matos' side had quite a few chances to score before the eventual equaliser arrived in the 82nd minute.

A win for the Black Starlets will see them qualify for the round of 16 whilst India will also be targeting their first win of the competition. "We will give it our all and aim to create history once again".

The hosts can mathematically reach the next round, but it will need a lot of factors to go right for them.

"Ghana are possibly the strongest team in the group and our biggest challenge will be to stop their two wingers from making those risky runs into the box". A 2-1 victory over Paraguay on the last matchday of the Final Stage, combined with a 2-4 Ecuador defeat to Venezuela, secured Colombia's ticket to India. Now we want to show we can win against them.

Current Colombia star James Rodriguez made his debut on the global stage with the U-17 squad, scoring three goals in the 2007 U-17 World Cup.

Secret Info On F-35, Australian Naval Vessels Stolen In Cyber Hack
The Federal Government on Wednesday night emphasised the information was commercially sensitive, but not classified. Since the breach was first revealed on Tuesday , speculation has been that a nation-state attacker was involved.

Ghana like to play fast football, using the pacy flank players Sadiq Ibrahim and Aminu Mohammed. India will again depend on Dheeraj Singh who has been the find of the tournament so far. During training on Wednesday, his focus was on saving long range shots and he made two teammates take kicks from outside the box. "We deserved a result, and we tried our very best to get it, but in the process we learnt a huge lesson what global football is all about", the 16-year-old Jeakson, who plays as a midfielder, said.

However, India had bad news as skipper Amarjit Singh and centre-back Anwar Ali missed practice due to injuries. Attacking midfielder Abhijit Sarkar is also a certainty and the battle for the left wing spot will be between Rahul Kannoly or Komal Thatal.

"But today was a tough match for both teams".

"Amarjit and Anwar Ali are now in conditional training and tomorrow we will be able to take a call on whether they will play or not".

Ghana are third in Group A with a win and loss.

After suffering a heavy defeat against the United States of America and a narrow reverse against Colombia, a win against Ghana is a must if India want to see any chance of progressing through to the next round.
