India’s U-17 team have defeated Italy in their race towards the forthcoming FIFA U17 World Cup. The Indians scored a goal in each half to secure a 2-0 win over their European opponents.
The opener came in the 31st minute after a period of continuous pressure on the Italian defence. An attempted cross by Abhijit Sarkar took a goal bound deflection resulting in the opening goal for India.
In the 80th minute, Rahul picked the ball inside the box and dispatched it into the net to make the score line 2-0.
