" Chances were few for both the teams in the second half. Coach Goutam Ghosh tried to get the game by the scruff of the collar by ringing in a host of fresh legs. It paid dividends in the five minutes of added time."
New Delhi, Aug 7 - A Nijwm Muchahary goal deep into second-half injury time helped the All India Football Federation (AIFF) U-16 Regional Academy Boys record a famous 1-0 win over the U-17 academy boys of Dutch Eredivisie newcomers FC Dordrecht in the city of Dordrecht in western Netherlands.

After battling through 80 minutes regular time -- with the match in its dying minutes, the U-16 colts got their reward through striker Muchahary who struck a neat right-footer low to the goalkeeper's left after collecting possession just outside the box,

The hosts got the first corner of the match which was easily cleared by AIFF U-16's backline. Moments later AIFF's boys got a free kick from a good position but Anirudh Thapa dragged it wide.

The Indian boys who recently took part in the Asia U-16 Champions Trophy dictated the midfield and Muchahary sent in a warning shot that warmed the gloves of rival goalkeeper.

Bedashwor Singh missed the best chance of the half soon after, skewing wide of rival keeper's goal from the edge of the six yard box after intercepting well from rival defender deep into their half.
