India's 1-2 defeat against Colombia in their second group stage match of the Under-17 World Cup was a classic so-near-yet-so-far story. "But, we proved today we can play at this level and I am proud of the commitment the players showed on the pitch", Matos told the post-match press conference.

This India-Colombia clash will also fall in the same bracket and the home crowd could have a wonderful night if India collect their first ever World Cup point on Monday.

The Amarjit Kiyam-led side, which lost their opening game 0-3 to the United States of America on October 6, will now face Ghana in the last Group A fixture on October 12.

But, to the disappointment of the thousands occupying the stands, Abhijeet Sarkar, having found a clear view of the goal, shot over. Sunil Chhetri, Praful Patel and many others congratulated the football player.

The second half saw a more determined Ghana come out and press the initiative, as they created a handful of quality chances just after the break through Sadiq Ibrahim and Emmanuel Toku, in particular. India were in with a chance as long they maintained their concentration and shape. "The gap is big, big for sure", he said before continuing, "Some of the Colombian players play in the first league in Colombia".

Juan Penaloza's rasping 49th-minute left footer put the South Americans ahead. The midfielder ran to the edge of the box and kept the Indian defenders guessing with his deft footwork, before unleashing a rasping left-footed volley to the bottom left corner of Dheeraj Singh's post.

Down by a goal in this crucial encounter, India looked eager to respond as Meetei delivered a cross from the right flank, only to find Rahul Kanoly's shot wide off the target.
