U-17 FIFA World Cup 2017 India New Delhi Goa

Margao: Their confidence sky-high after hammering Germany, Iran would look to end their league engagements unbeaten when they take on Costa Rica in a Group C clash of the FIFA Under-17 World Cup on Friday.

On Friday, after the Guinea-Germany Group C game, there was a primal scream that came through the other side, which serves as a walkway through the dressing rooms on to the ground. Iran's early running, keynote of their huge win over Germany, kept goalkeeper Ricardo Montenegro busy but a goal arrived only after Amferny Arias, acting captain in place of the benched Jose Alfaro, brought down Delfi.

Meanwhile German captain Jann-Fiete Arp, the biggest name in the team, said that his players realised that they had to do something very different after the Iran game. "The players had vast pressure for the game, but the boys played cool and got the result".

The coach also hailed young keeper Camara for his wonderful performance and added: "The goals were due to the errors from the defence, and am happy with the keeper's performance in the tournament". "Guinea is a very fast and strong team, but we also matched them", said Wuck.

Iran and Brazil are through to the last 16 and will determine the fate of Costa Rica and Niger respectively in the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup at the Nehru stadium in Fatorda today.

Iran coach Abbas Chamanian lauded his defence for their excellent work rate through all three group games. Realistically it was the point where the match seemed over for Guinea, even though they fought hard for the remainder of the game, even playing with effectively four strikers at one stage, when midfielder Elhadj Bah was replaced by Djibril Sylla.

The problem for Costa Rica is that they are playing against Iran - a team that has surpassed and shocked most in Goa.

Summary: That boils down to beating Costa Rica to guarantee topping the group."Goa is a good omen for us", the stoic Chamanian said.

Guinea coach Souleymane Camera admitted the better team won.

Germany now meet Colombia in New Delhi on October 16, and will get one day less to rest for that match than their opponents.

"We should not get carried away with the victory against the Germans and instead focus on Costa Rica who always look risky in front of the goal with their skillful play", he added.

"Kochi is actually better than Goa".

"We have had at least 30 chances across the three games, against Iran, Costa Rica and tonight against Germany". But I think my players are very strong and very fast.
