I would like to wish Team India all the very best for the first game and the rest of the tournament. Go get it boys and make us proud!

The entire country is supporting them. Just give your best and enjoy the game.
Mandar Rao Dessai, Midfielder, FC Goa
I just want to say, give your best, play well and score well. All the best!
Laxmikant Kattimani, Goalkeeper, FC Goa
I wish the team all the very best. I am from Manipur myself and there are eight players from Manipur representing India at the U-17 WC that’s very great and I wish all the players all the very best. Give you best and enjoy the game. We are all supporting the team. Try not to be under any sort of pressure, enjoy playing the game. It is a great feeling representing the country at any level. Representing India at the World Cup is a fantastic opportunity. None of us have had that opportunity. I wish them lots of luck.
Chinglensana Singh, Defender, FC Goa
I wish the Indian team all the best. This is an amazing opportunity for India as a country that is developing football. It is a tremendous opportunity to grow-up and gain experience from the best teams in Europe and the World. I wish them all the best. Be happy, enjoy playing football because it is an opportunity that doesn’t come very often. I wish Team India all the best.
Bruno Pinheiro (Portuguese), Defender, FC Goa
More than anything else, having played in the U-19 and U-20 national team of Spain, it’s important that these guys have fun. At 17 years of age it’s important that you learn on the pitch rather than focus on the results but it’s important to have fun when you pay.
Edu Bedia, Midfielder, FC Goa
I wish them all the best. It’s a great opportunity for them to come and play here, I hope they have a great tournament and we’ll be supporting them from afar.
Ferran Corominas ( ESP), Striker, FC Goa
