After playing in Brazil and Russia respectively, the India U17 World Cup squads are all set to start training in Goa later this week under an interim coach and can expect to have a new full-time coach latest by February 15.


With less than a year left for India to host its first ever FIFA World Cup -- the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017, it was confirmed that the Germany man Nicolai Adam, who is currently managing the Indian U 17 squad doesn’t have the future with the team as the Indian players complained in a written letter against coach Nicolai Adam, alleging physical abuse.

And the federation has been left in no doubt that the German man Nicolai doesn't have a future with the team, as one of the senior AIFF official told TOI on Monday, “We've made that very clear to Nicolai and he understands the seriousness. He cannot continue as coach,"
