The Blue colts are on a high like never before after stunning the defending AFC U-16 champions Iraq 1-0 in their previous encounter at the WAFF Boys' Championships. Bhuvenesh was the star of the day after heading the winner in the final few minutes after brilliant hold-up play by the Indians on the flanks.

This is Bibiano Fernandes' boys' last match of the exposure tour in Amman, Jordan. The young colts need to get their focus back on the task at hand -- defeating Yemen in their upcoming match -- after celebrating the historical day along with Indian football fans all around the nation. 

The victory on Sunday was the first win by an Indian football team against Iraq across age-groups. One thing is for sure, the Blue colts will continue to have the same belief on the pitch and it will automatically be strengthened as there will be millions backing them now. 

The young team from India started their campaign on a high as they thrashed hosts Jordan 4-0 in their opening encounter on Aug 1. Despite a 1-2 loss to Japan in their next, the boys played with great faith and snatched the iconic 1-0 win against Iraq in their latest encounter. 

The onus now lies on the Indian U16 team and Bibiano Fernandes to keep the momentum going. They will look to end the campaign on a high by defeating a team like Yemen and hope to live up to the high expectations which they have now set for themselves.

With little time left for the AFC U16 Championships, the young colts look on the right track. Organizing so many exposure tours has done them a lot of good and the All India Football Federation (AIFF) must be credited for it.
