Iran thrash Costa Rica to advance as Group C winners

U-17 FIFA World Cup 2017 India New Delhi Goa

Guinea - a powder keg of superb individual ability married with inexcusable errors at clutch points in their first two games - promised to be an unpredictable team to face, though Thursday's results in Group B had meant Germany basically had to avoid defeat, and even if they had lost, they would have been assured of qualification for the round of 16 unless Costa Rica pulled off a win against table-toppers Iran in Goa.

Speaking after the game, Germany U-17 coach said that he expects his wards to be more efficient in front of goal but also praised the mentality of his side after a 4-0 loss against Iran in their previous game.

According to the Newspaper, And with good reason.The Iranians reached the final of the AFC U-16 Championships here previous year, losing only in a penalty shootout to arch-rivals Iraq and have scintillated so far in the World Cup to win both matches.But keeping superstition aside, the surge here would suggest that Iran have brought every last ounce of their experience in Goan conditions into their effervescent display at Fatorda while outplaying Guinea 3-1 and demolishing fancied Germany 4-0.Much as the ambience at Benaulim appeared relatively relaxed, Iran's philosophy after winning a match offers no let-up in intensity."When we win any match, we think more about any point of weaknesses". It was important for us to start well. He had a very, very good game and the other, Yann Bisseck, a great defender, made no mistakes, or probably he made one. First game against Costa Rica we won 2-1. Today I think we could have scored 5 to 6 goals.

"The changes were tactical".

"It is their best performance so far and if they continue to perform in the same manner we have a great chance to reach the final", said Abbas Chamanian. Not so hot and humid.

Factory growth, inflation likely to trend higher, says Morgan Stanley report
IIP growth slowed down to 2.2% during April-August this fiscal from 5.9% in the corresponding period last fiscal. The Consumer Price Index ( CPI ) or retail inflation stood at 4.39 per cent in September 2016.

Costa Rica coach Breansse Camacho felt it was hard for his team to cope with the physically stronger Iran team.

"I think the referee made a false decision of this card".

The pitch is a little different.

"We want to make the best out of the players". I don't know why. "The pitch here is a lot like what we get in Europe". Coach Camara reflected on this aspect of their game and called for improvement. "In every match we have played, we have created chances, but in football you have to convert", he said. "We haven't been able to capitalise on that, and this is something we must work on", Camara said.

"We have worked out a strategy to overcome the challenge and we are looking forward to win tomorrow", stated Costa Rica coach Breansse Camacho.
