We are ready to fight it out against Ghana: Jeakson

Thursday, October 12, 2017

New Delhi: History-maker Jeakson Singh, who will be remembered as the one who scored India's first goal in any FIFA tournament, says the team is "ready to fight it out" in its final group game of the U-17 World Cup against Ghana.

When defensive midfielder Jeakson neutralised Colombia's lead by scoring the country's first-ever World Cup goal in its second group game, India were moments away from securing their maiden draw in only the second attempt.

"We will play as per our plans. As a team we are prepared to fight it out. We played well against Colombia. We have fought hard and will do the same against Ghana. We are ready for the African challenge," Jeakson said on the eve of the match.

Going back to the Colombia match, which he called sweet and sour, a modest Jeakson said his teammates deserved all the credit. "I'm very happy and I would like to thank my teammates as because of them I got the opportunity to score. I only played my part. Just because I scored it doesn't mean that I should get all the credit. It was a great feeling for me as well as for the entire team and country," he stated.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)This is the right time to ask for help if you need it. Adjustments are necessary almost at every level. You must adapt to some things that you cannot change. Do not be rigid and accept readily with grace. Use your money wisely, for there may be several demands. A long distance journey to a pilgrim spot or the need to meet a person you look up to is likely. The need to get an unbiased opinion about your affairs is strong.
