Needless to say, preparations in the lead-up to India's first ever Fifa World Cup have been far from ideal and de Matos will need to make the best out of the situation at hand.

Tavora acknowledged that the current U-17 lot is extremely lucky to have got this big opportunity and feels that they should make the best of it despite the obvious difficulties in their pathway.

In order to prepare for the FIFA U-17 World Cup 2017 in India, the All India Football Federation (AIFF) organised tours for the India U-17s wherein the side faced Macedonia, Serbia and Benfica amongst others. In the 87 years since, India never managed to qualify for any of the Fifa-affiliated global tournaments, so the 11 players taking the field against the United States are set to make history. "It's going to be really hard obviously but I'm sure they would give a good account of themselves", Tavora affirmed. Hence, it is an opportunity for the young boys to showcase what Indian footballers can do at the world stage.

Hosts India have been drawn in a tough group - Group A - along with heavyweights Colombia, USA and Ghana.

Ceppi has also worked with the LOCs of the previous two editions of the U-17 World Cup, in UAE (2013) and Chile (2015).

"With a little bit of host luck, and the entire country's support, I think they are very close to pulling off a surprise in the tournament", Menezes said.

The Indian U-17 Football World Cup squad are already on their way to commence their campaign in the tournament which starts on October 6 at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi.
