Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of the Sport Chain Cup 2018 match between the India U-16 football team & the USA U-16 team!
...
The exposure trip of the India U16 football team has been going really well. The AIFF needs to be credited for giving the young boys so much exposure. The exposure trip continues as The Indian U-16 Football team gets ready to play against the USA U16 side in the Sportchain Cup 2018. 
 
Heading into this game, the young boys from India would be full of confidence as they avoided defeat against a much stronger Valencia U16 side on April 11. 
 
Coach Bibiano Fernandes has high hopes of the Indian team doing well at the Sport Chain Cup 2018. The Indian team had a phenomenal run in the Jockey youth cup which concluded recently in Hong Kong. India won their matches against Hong Kong (4-2), Singapore (3-1) & Chinese Taipei (4-0) as they pulled off some incredible results. India is participating in all these events as part of its preparation of the AFC U-16 Championship, which is scheduled to start in September this year.
