thumbnail Hello,

Colin Toal’s boys gave a decent account of themselves against the West Asian nation in a practice match…

India U-16 side were defeated by UAE U-16 2-1 at the UAE FA Stadium in Dubai on Tuesday.

The India Colts are training in Dubai as part of their preparations for the AFC U-16 Championships to be held later this month where they are grouped alongside Uzbekistan, Syria and China.

India conceded a goal in the 16th minute but did well to comeback through Daniel Lalhlimpuia around the half hour mark.

However the Indians couldn’t hold on to their lead as just eight minutes after UAE once again took the lead.

India Colts shall face the same opponent on Friday in their final friendly game ahead of the Championships. The team had earlier defeated U-17 Al Kaleej Academy 4-1 in their first practice game in Dubai.
