With less than a year left for India to host its first ever FIFA World Cup -- the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017, the All India Football Federation is organizing three scouting camps to find out more talented Players ahead of the ensuing FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017, under the Director of AIFF, Abhishek Yadav.
All the teams from all over India, who are contesting in the ongoing U-16 Youth, were asked to send three players from each club for the camp for the u-17 world cup team trial.
And after the successful two-day camp in Kalyani in West Bengal, the All India Football Federation (AIFF) is now focusing to the capital as the two-day camp for the North zone to select players for the Indian u-17 world cup team kicked off in New Delhi today (November 22, 2016).
The Director of AIFF, Abhishek Yadav will be having a look at those assembled 48 boys from the 10 Clubs to determine “whether they are good enough for the FIFA U-17 World Cup 2017.”
As Abhishek Yadav the Director of AIFF has explained everything in an interview with www.the-aiff.com at a ground in Central Delhi,
"I would like to thank all the Clubs for sending their best Players for the trials. It's really encouraging to find the buoyant group of boys turning up for the session,”
“Come what may, this session will help these boys learn new skills and judge themselves. Over the course of their career, this will definitely aid them to reach the next level. It is the perfect platform for the boys to showcase their talents and AIFF will definitely look upon to organising more such Camps in future.” He added.
After wrapping up the first session, the ex-National Team skipper maintained that it was “too early” to pass a judgement.
"It's too early to comment on whom to look upon closely. We are well aware of our requirement and we'll act accordingly,” Abhishek stated.
According to the Director of AIFF, Abhishek Yadav, sometimes it happens with a player when he can't give his 100% during a match, so this is the best opportunities for those players,
"Having been a Player I realise how the boys are feeling right now. Their performance might be shaky – they may also be a bit nervous. That's why we want to provide them with ample opportunities to prove their worth, not just one session,”
“The AIFF is leaving no stone unturned to unearth the best possible talents in our quest to field the best squad for the upcoming World Cup,” he concluded.
