Emphatic victories for Indonesian, Ch’garh boys
Indonesia’s Daftar Nama Kontingen boys defeated Delhi Public School from Haryana 7-0, while the outfit from Chhattisgarh’s St Xavier’s Higher Secondary School beat Lakshadweep’s school by the same margin to close in on a quarterfinal berth in the Junior Boys (U-17) category of the 56th Subroto Cup football tournament on Friday.

It will be interesting which of the two makes the cut as both have a match in hand on Saturday. Even otherwise, things will be clear only after the second phase of pool engagements come to an end.
