Yacine Adli the fleet-footed PSG right winger who is in fine form in the ongoing FIFA U17 World Cup with four assists to his name already, stated that at the moment it is his dream to play at the Mecca of Indian Football - the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krianganan on 28th October and lift up the FIFA U17 World Cup. He also said that the whole team was looking forward to playing in one of the biggest stadiums in the world.

The winger from PSG has already grabbed a lot of eyeballs and is the main creative general in France’s attack, it also seems that scouts from different countries are having a closer look at him given that the current PSG squad boosts of some of the biggest names in world football in the form of Neymar, Cavani, Mbappe, Di Maria, Draxler so it would take the lad quite some time to get into the first team, and this could be the perfect time to lure the kid away from Parc des Princes.

The U17 midfielder did admit that he has had the chance to train alongside NEYMAR and that it was a great experience.

“The team’s greater good is more important than personal goals” was his statement when asked to comment about the team and the motto he follows when playing for the national team. 

France defeated Japan 2-1 in the first Group E encounter in which Amine Gouri scored a brace and Adli racked up a brilliant assist with a brilliant build up play leading to the goal. During the Game he was seen dropping back and helping out the wing backs and defending, he was also seen covering a lot of ground which was also praised by the coach. 

After the game a lot of bonhomie was seen going on between Yacine Adli and the Japanese Messi, Kubo Takefusa, when asked to comment about Kubo Adli, said that he wished that when Kubo turns 18 he can go and play for Barcelona as it is his dream.

Kubo had spent two years with Barcelona before the Catalan Giants were handed a transfer ban in 2014 for breaking the transfer protocol for players aged U18, and Kubo had to return back to Japan, so Adli wished that once Kubo turns 18 he can fulfil his dreams of playing in Camp Nou and wished him success in the future.

“It was a good one-two with Gouiri, I had a chance to score but then I saw Amine in a better position than me, so I passed the ball to him” was Yacine Adli views on that lovely assist for the second goal. 

He also mentioned that the whole team was looking forward to the Knockout Stages and today's game against Japan was a very good game, everyone was really waiting for this game, they are all happy that they were able to gain all three points from this crucial encounter and book their spots in the knockout phase.

It was their aim to fix their place in the round of 16 before the final group game and they are happy to have accomplished their target, now they will be taking it one game at a time.
