do-or-die for Colombia
Title contenders United States of America would like to keep their all-win record intact against a desperate Colombia, who are unlikely to settle for anything less than a victory in a Group A encounter of the FIFA U-17 World Cup, here on Thursday.
USA are already through to the round of 16 with back-to-back victories against hosts India (3-0) and Ghana (1-0).
Colombia on the other hand had lost to Ghana 0-1 in their opening encounter before getting full points against India with a narrow 2-1 win.
With Ghana likely to press hard for a win against India, Colombia would like to win the US encounter rather than wait for the best third place result. With their berth in the next round confirmed, USA would be eager to play aggressive brand of football and challenge their South American opponents from the onset.
Captain and striker Josh Sargent, Tim Weah, son of former FIFA World Player of the Year and Liberia great George Weah, will be eager to pump home a few more goals before the knock out rounds start. A win against Colombia will be a morale booster for USA before their clash in the next round and the coach would expect that his boys end the group stage on a high note.
