Palmanova [Italy], Apr 30 (ANI): India suffered their second defeat 1-3 in the ongoing MU-15 Championship at the hands of Mexico by 1-3 in Palmanova.
Jesus Hernandes Moreno opened the scoring for Mexico early on Monday, before Carlos Eduardo Guillen added another. Aula Siba came inches close to pulling one back for India when he got an opportunity to tap it in from inside the six-yard box. However, he sent his shot agonisingly wide.
Eventually, Sridarth won and converted a penalty towards the end of the first half of this 70-minute match to give Coach Bibiano Fernandes’ team a fighting chance. Moreno scored again, just after the changeover, to secure the three points for the Mexicans.
In the second half, Indians knocked hard on the doors of Mexicans but could not turn the tables. Ashu, Amosa Lalnundanga and Ratanbi Singh combined well to create a few chances, but it was too little, too late, as Mexico ran away with the win in the end.
India will next play against Slovenia in their last group stage game on April 30. (ANI)
