The Indian boys ended their FIFA U-17 World Cup campaign with a whimper after slumping to a heavy 4-0 defeat against the mighty Ghana.

Speaking to the press after the match, coach Luis Norton de Matos said, "Our team knew tonight after two hard games it would be complicated to play against Ghana, the strongest team in the group. They have very fast players, very strong players but I’m very proud of my team."

He added, “Every player in Ghana can change the game and I knew we would suffer in the third game. Today, the difference between the teams was there. The gap exists and this is the reality of the situation."

When asked about his and the team's future, he said, "I don’t know what is the future of our team. I don't know if I'll stay, I have a couple of meetings to attend."
