Hello and welcome to the live coverage of the Cotif Cup as Indian U20 side take on African nation Mauritiana U20 in their second match of the tournament in Spain.
...
Indian colts of the sub-junior U-20 category are set to continue their campaign in the Cotif Cup tournament as they take on African side Mauritiana in Spain.

The Cotif Cup sees a host of players from the FIFA U-17 World Cup squad as well as players that took part in the AFC U-19 qualifiers held in Saudi Arabia.

The first match of the tournament saw the Indian side face Spanish club Murciana a couple of days ago which saw the colts lose 2-0 in a closely contested affair. The match saw three red cards being shown by the referee including the Indian defensive duo of Anwar Ali and Jitendra Singh.

Cotif Cup will see India take on Argentina U-20, and Venezuela U-20 after the Mauritania U-20 side. Newly appointed coach Floyd Pinto will hope the boys can draw good experience from the matches which will act as build-up for the qualification phase for FIFA U-20 World Cup.

Can the Indian youngsters recover from the loss in the first match and bounce back against the African side.
