US U-17 football team coach John Hackworth reckoned on Thursday that India will be a dangerous side to face, ahead of their FIFA U-17 World Cup clash against the hosts.
“I think the key tomorrow is our defence plays well, if our defence plays well it initiates our attack to do well and what have seen we understand that it is a dangerous India team,” Hackworth told reporters during the pre-match press conference.
“There is number 9, there are centre fowards and many different players, we have to be very respectful (of India),” the 47-year-old added.
