Indian Football U16 team thrash Egypt 13-1
The India U16 national football team opened their “Coca-Cola International 2010 Football Camp” campaign with several impressive results including a 13-1 thrashing of the Egyptian U16 team.
The “Coca-Cola International 2010 Football Camp” is held in the city of Pretoria, South Africa from June 15 to 20, 2010. 250 teenagers from around the world gather at the special football camp hosted by Coca-Cola during the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ tournament.
The Indian sub-junior team, selected by the All India Football Federation (AIFF) during the Coca-Cola Mir Iqbal Hussain Trophy in 2009, started off with a 1-1 draw against Guatemala on Thursday. They continued their campaign with a 2-2 draw against the Mexican U16 team.
Boosted by the good display, the Indian colts took on the Egypt U16 team and scored an unpredictable 13-1 win against the surprised North Africans. Xavier Anto grabbed the ‘Man of the Match’ award with four goals on his tally.
The Indian team will play their semi-final match on late Saturday and could pull another surprise while booking their place in the final!
