India need to beat Ghana by a huge margin, while expecting the USA to beat Colombia to aid their qualification to the knockout stage of the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup.

India will possibly be playing their last World Cup match when they take on Ghana in their last group A game at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium on Thursday, but they will not let a historic qualification slip through their hands without putting up a good fight.

India have lost their first two games of the competition- a 0-3 defeat to the USA and a 1-2 to Colombia, but they were proud with their first ever goal scored in a FIFA organized tournament.

And against Ghana they are eyeing their first win of the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup, though qualification might be out of reach unless they win handsomely, while expecting Colombia to also fall against the USA.

The Indian government has promised each player $20,000 if they beat Ghana, while a rich man has reportedly assured the team additional $1m dollars should they overcome the Black Starlets.

Ghana have won one and drawn one and would have to win against India to cement their place at the knockout stage of the contest.
