FIFA U-17 WC: Kochi turns into sea of yellow as fans root for Brazil all the way
Spain coach Santiago Denia rued defensive lapses which helped Brazil come back from a goal down to win 2-1 in their Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup Group D clash at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium here today.
That allowed Brazil to claim the lead just before the half-time whistle, as Paulinho latched on to Marcos Antonio's fine through-ball before beating Spain goalkeeper Alvaro Fernandez with a rising finish. The Brazilian side looked vulnerable and was exposed which saw the Spanish side taking the lead in the 6th minute, courtesy Mohamed Moukhliss who shot the ball in via a pass from Ferran Torres.
With one more match left in Kochi - against DPR Korea - the Brazilians will be hoping to come up with a treat for Kerala fans before they fly to Goa for their final group-stage game against Niger on January 13.
"In the last World Cup we lost the first match and the players were very nervous for the second game against England", said Amadeu. Today we remained focused after conceding the goal.
Captain Vitao had not been kidding on Friday when he said that his team's offensive play began from their defence.
41′: U-17 World Cup us not necessarily a reflection of the senior side and this match is proving that.
The development means that the Brazilian U-17 camp will have to endure a nervous wait to see if Federation Internationale de Football Association will allow them to name a replacement for Vinicius. North Korea, who usually play defensive football, also had a good campaign in the Asian Under-17 Championship, where they crashed out to Iran in the semi-final. The assembled crowd returned home disappointed only to return the next day evening to the sight of the future stars of Brazil trooping out of the team bus. But we have many talented players here.
Spaniards must have felt a little intimidated as they, along with their counterparts from Brazil, walked out of the tunnel of the Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium in Kochi on Saturday. "We wanted to give it back because it is very important for us all over the competition", the Brazil coach said.
Brazil, the overwhelming favourites of the packed stadium, took control of the match just after conceding the goal with far more possession and attacking. But as we are dealing with the lower category U-17, I think that our team has a word to say.
"There are injuries. We will try our best for the recovery before the next match", he said.
"Humidity played a part (in our loss)".
"We are working with our doctors and physios to improve", said Denia. We have been here for four days. We have to adapt to the climate.
Read warns All Blacks to be wary of Boks
The way the players have trained this past week, the way we've committed to one another has come through in this performance. We are heading in the right direction. "In both matches against Australia we were in it and could have won it, but did not".
Bucs sign K Murray to replace Folk
Murray is 85.7 percent in his career on field goals from 40 or more yards, which was an area of struggle for the Bucs with Aguayo. The tipping point was Folk's performance against the Patriots; his kicks would have been the difference-maker.
