up football in a big way “For a country like India the priority remains to make a mark on the World stage and the FIFA U-17 World Cup hosting rights could not have come at a better time The very fact that our boys will be getting a chance to rub shoulders with the best of the world is amazing” Patel told PTI in an exclusive interview “The overall infrastructure of the country has been improved to be at par with the international standards which will benefit Indian football immensely” Patel added The AIFF president then explained why he feels that the tournament will raise the profile of the

will surely grow and the mission of making football a pan-India sport will be realised” he said when asked if the tournament would bring a football revolution in the country Patel who has been at the

verge of qualifying for the AFC Asian Cup 2019 and I congratulate Stephen (Constantine) the boys and the support staff for the tremendous consistency” He also made the point that Indian football has made strides from being a “sleeping giant” as had been coined by former FIFA Chief Sepp Blatter when he visited the country in 2007 “Mr Joseph Blatter had mentioned during his last visit to India that the ‘sleeping giant’ has started to wake-up Taking it further the present FIFA President Mr Gianni Infantino during his last visit had described India as the “passionate giant “Football is developing
