Colombia weren't allowed to impose their slick passing game as the work rate of the Indians forced the South Americans into silly mis-passes. With the previous experience of playing against the Latin Americans a couple of months before in Mexico, the Indian gaffer described the game to be tough for the Indians. "As a coach, I would not like to lose".

Matos also said that his side also needs improvement in the offensive transitions.

The first three days of the competition, so far, has produced lots of goals, and some tight affair between top teams, making it an interesting tournament in the past three days. But we believe in our football philosophy and will continue to play the same way.

Matos was vocal while talking about what went wrong against the USA. The Indian fans took to Twitter to celebrate the magnificent goal.

Colombia, on the other hand, also slumped to a 0-1 defeat against Ghana in their first match.

"I don't like giving excuses of the referees but I understand the angle they have can be wrong for him, his vision", he later elaborated his views.

"India were very organised at the back against the U.S., they conceded an unfortunate penalty otherwise they would have made things more hard for the US", said Restrepo before Colombia's practice session on Friday. We have to be on our toes all throughout and have to focus on the task at hand.
