The Indian U-17 Women’s National Team, currently participating in the BRICS U-17 football tournament in Johannesburg, South Africa lost 0-5 against Brazil on Saturday.

Although the Indian eves started the match on an attacking note, it was Brazil -with a splendid performance in the second half - that ran out eventual winner, scoring four goals in the latter half.

India had a good chance to go ahead in the 8th minute when Soumya Guguloth burst onto goal with only the opposition custodian to beat, but she slotted wide of the post.

Indian goalkeeper Archana conceded in the 40th minute as Brazil took a 1-0 lead on the stroke of half-time. It doubled its lead in the 65th minute and scored two back-to-back goals in the 80 and 81st minute to make it 4-0.

The South American side added more gloss to the scoreline in the dying embers of the match by netting in the 83minute.
