Hosts India will aim to bounce back from their defeat against the USA when they take on Colombia in their second Group A clash of the FIFA U-17 World Cup at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium later on Monday.

India went down fighting 0-3 against a robust USA in their opening match.

The boys in blue, who are without a point and with a goal difference in the high negatives, are currently standing at the bottom of the group.

Colombia, on the other hand, also slumped to a 0-1 defeat against Ghana in their first match. They now find themselves in a similar situation as India and will aim to improve their performance and register their first points on the board.

In another Group A encounter on Monday, Ghana will take on the USA at the same venue while Turkey will lock horns with Mali in their Group B encounter.

Meanwhile, Paraguay will also cross swords with New Zealand later on Monday.
