By virtue of being the host nation, India play in their first ever FIFA World Cup in any age group. The Iads will definitely make India proud with a ‘more-than-expected’ performance.
There aren’t any high expectations from the Indian colts and understandably so. The boys have got this once in a lifetime chance only as India is hosting the event.
It would be a considered a great achievement even if India manage to draw a match. If they break into the playoff stages it would definitely be a miracle and as good as winning the world cup for India. On paper, India is the weakest team in their group that also comprises of USA, Ghana and Colombia.
Can India really manage to draw a match, better still win a match or as every daydreaming Indian football fan would want; even manage to sneak into the playoffs! Well, there is a great chance of any one of these three things actually happening!
The most important people in the squads participating in such spectacular events are the coach, the captain and the goalkeeper.
India’s chances of a good show in the event come from the spectacular horoscope of Coach Luis Norton de Matos. The Portuguese has Pluto, Saturn and Chiron in exaltation and Planet-X in its own house and this is an extraordinary arrangement of planets. He has united the team into a fighting unit just under eight months of taking charge. His planets show that he would be applauded after the event is over. That can be only possible if India puts up a good show.
Captain Amarjit Singh Kiyam has a good horoscope too. While he would go on the record books to be the first Indian to captain an Indian football team in a World Cup, he can preside over something even more spectacular. His Planet-X in deep exaltation together with a strong Planet-Y and Pluto may just help him do that.
Dheeraj Singh Moirangthem will be the great saviour for India. He will make some outstanding saves for India and may even be a star of the match which India would salvage. He has Venus and Mars in conjunction, a great asset for a goalkeeper.
The biggest stars from India though would be Aniket Jadhav and Rahim Ali. Both the forwards have extraordinary horoscopes and have excellent chances to score goals for India. While Aniket has high scoring abilities and may do so, Rahim Ali has the chance of becoming an instant hero by doing something astonishing, maybe become the first Indian to score a goal in a FIFA World Cup! Ali has Planet-X, Sun and Venus exalted besides Pluto, Planet-Y and Mars in own houses, a very remarkable horoscope indeed.
In all, the Indian team would manage to pull off something much better than the expectations. It may be drawing a match, or better still, even winning a match. They can even perform the miracle of storming into the knockout stages, a very slim chance, but still a chance nonetheless.
Indian football will only soar higher in future years. These 21 boys will set the ball rolling and be an inspiration to a whole generation.Published 05 Oct 2017, 11:14 IST
