USA took the lead just minutes into the second half from a penalty they earned. Austin Brummet comfortably slotted the ball past Indian goalkeeper Ayush Deshwal.

It was all USA in the second half as they looked to increase their lead further by dominating proceedings. India though could have restored parity at the hour mark as Maheson Singh’s free-kick curled past the far post by a few inches.

Carlos Cortez doubled the lead for USA in the 63rd minute with a brilliant corner which went directly into the goal. Osvaldo Cisneros scored the final goal for his team sealing the fate of the match just seconds before the final whistle.

Bibiano Fernandes’ boys will next face Mexico U15 side on Monday at the same venue.

India XI: Ayush Deshwal (GK), Rajan Soren, Abdul Hannan, Halen Singh, Ashu, Amosa Laldung, Tatanbi Singh, Eric Lalsang (C), Himanshu Jangra, Aula Siba, Maheson Singh.
