FIFA U-17 WC: Kochi turns into sea of yellow as fans root for Brazil all the way
A dominant Brazil made a strong statement of their top title contender status with a 2-1 victory over Spain in a Group D marquee clash of the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup here today.In a much-anticipated encounter in front of a sell-out crowd, Spain made a flying start and took the lead in the fifth minute through an own goal by Brazil defender Wesley, but soon lost the plot as the Brazilians turned the table on them.
This resulted in the boys in yellow & blue to equalise in the 27th minute through a cross by Alan and Lincoln taking the final touches to get his name on the score-sheet for the first time this World Cup.
Not a packed ground but somewhere between 20-25 thousand and majority supporting Brazil which didn't come as surprise. "We hope to win those games", he added. On Friday, their coach had called Group D the most difficult, but it would be hard to see the Spanish finding a tougher opponent on their way to the knockouts, than the ones they faced today.
Amadeu thanked the crowd for the overwhelming support to his team.
"We are disappointed as we have been running from pillar to post to get tickets for the matches and there is not a single ticket that's available online for any of the days". It was really nice.
Here in Kochi, Brazil shared that piece of dreaming with a crowd of 21000, but also as importantly, flashed the steel that resides under their golden glitter. "We sent him good vibes", Brazil captain Vitao said. We have to congratulate you for this kind of public.
In an U-17 event of this nature, there will always be freshness and innocence; in the case of this match, both amongst the players at the tournament as well as their Indian audience who were being presented footballing quality at close range. "We are feeling like home since we got here".
"It was an equally contested match". The training was open only for the first 15 minutes. The UEFA champions dominated the start as well as the second half. We had chances but could not score. "We have to improve as a team, but we need improvements especially in defence", he said. "So the whole country is happy with today's performance", said Tiemoko after Niger eked out a 1-0 win over North Korea last night.
Asked about the impact of humidity on his players, he said, "So many players, not just from Spain but from Brazil had muscular problems".
"Humidity played a part (in our loss)".
"We came here after travelling more than 200km just to watch Brazil. We will try to adapt and are working with our doctors to address the issue of dehydration", he said.
