Jeakson's journey from makeshift fields to pages of football history

Manipur Passion for the game! Jeakson Thounaojam once fasted 2 days when told to stop playing football

Germany left for Kochi on Wednesday for the last Group C game against Guinea, which is a must-win game for both the teams to keep their hopes alive in the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup.

Ghana captain Eric Ayiah scored twice - in the 43rd and 52nd minutes - while second half substitutes Richard Danso (86th) and Emmanuel Toku (87th) struck once each to break the hearts of the supporters. They also have equally strong side with good defenders and attackers.

After the game, Twitterati heaped praise on the Indian team as they made the nation proud by displaying a gritty performance in the tournament.

The fans had turned up in large numbers, hoping that their players would come up with another inspiring show, like they had done against Colombia in the previous match. As Jeakson Singh Thounoujam's 6-feet-2-inch frame rose above all other heads in the penalty box and headed in Sanjeev Stalin 's corner kick to give India its first ever World Cup goal, every house in Manipur erupted with cheering.A local hero had been born. US had to be content with the third place. Unfortunately for the hosts, they maintained the tempo for much of the first half but defensive lapses hurt them plenty especially as the game went on.

"Would love to see how senior India teams perform against senior teams of these countries!"

The USA entered Thursday as winners of two straight at the World Cup, beating India 3-0 before edging Ghana 1-0.

Vastly superior in physique, speed and skill, the Ghanians totally dominated the match as far as both possession and shots were concerned. After scoring the second goal Penaloza provided the match-winning assist. If they had to play one more match, they couldn't have played as they didn't have any energy left. Even Aniket had to run deep down and help his team-mates in the wake of the wave of Ghana offensive.

Hence, Ghana will play their pre-quarterfinal in Navi Mumbai on October 18 at 5pm while Colombia travel to New Delhi.

India's game fell apart as Ghana kept attacking India in the box.
