India colts enter QFs of Dallas Cup football tourney

April 21, 2011 13:22 IST

India's Under-15 football team has entered the quarter-finals of the Dallas Cup when they defeated a formidable Sockers FC U-15 side by a solitary goal in their last group match in Texas, USA.

Mohanna scored the match-winner for the Indian colts.

By virtue of this win, the Indian side topped Group G with six points and will next play FC Golden State in the last eight stage.

Mohanna had also scored a double in Indian U-15 team's emphatic 5-2 win over TSF Academy in an earlier match.

In another match of the group, Santa Clara Sporting split points with TSF Academy to finish second on the standings with five points.

The Indian boys, who have been based in Florida since September, 2010, had defeated Florida's Fusion FC 3-2 to win the Invitational Championship in December last year.
