Opinion: Under 17 Football World Cup 2017.
Under 17 Football World Cup 2017:
The under 17 Football world cup surprisingly was a huge success if collectively everything is taken into account which even FIFA PRESIDENT GIANNI INFANTINO acknowledged.
Population matters and overpopulation may have its negatives but so are the positives in terms of the target audience which may be having limited appeal but still may be bigger than total people in many countries. Here INDIA succeeds be it WEST part of the country or especially the NORTHEAST whose residents come close to giving competition to BRAZIL’S football crazy fans, record 66000 plus that filled the KOLKATA stadium is the living proof that they are second to none.
A big thank you to everyone be it the organizers, the Indian government yes they too sometimes live up to expectations and last not the least the AAM JANTA who make stars shine bright and give them the might be the sports or movies.
It was a perfect recipe for any sports lover as it had all the chills spills and thrills be it the quality and as well as the quantity as ENGLAND beat SPAIN after being 2-0 down but then that’s what makes current stars and future legends as the English boys went on a goal spree of 5, but that doesn’t mean SPAIN don’t get chances, it was just destined to be.
That ENGLAND and SPAIN made to the finals not here but also at the European under 17 where the roles were reversed, is the testimony to these two nations having the strongest and most watched football leagues in addition to the high-end facilities at the grassroots which is the perfect living example for all. Here ISL the INDIAN SUPER LEAGUE would definitely transform INDIAN FOOTBALL standards in the coming years we hope.
Brewster (44th minute), Gibbs White (58th minute), Foden (69th and 88th minute), Guehi (84th minute).
S. Gomez (10th and 31st minute).
Brazil (2) beat Mali (0) and took the 3rd place.They had both been beaten by England and Spain by the same 3-1 scoreline in the Semi-Finals.
