New Delhi. Today i.e. Tuesday (October 11) is a historic day for Indian football. Women’s Football World Cup is going to start in India after about 5 years. The Indian women’s football team will compete with the opposing teams with their passion and enthusiasm. Their first match is against a strong team like America. After the 2017 Under-17 Men’s World Cup, the FIFA Under-17 Women’s World Cup is starting in India from Tuesday. For the first time Indian girls will take on veteran teams in this tournament.
According to ESPN’s report, the Indian team, which is captained by Astam Oraon, is going to have its first encounter with the American team, which is captained by Mia Bhuta of Indian origin. Indian skipper Astam Oraon is extremely excited ahead of the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup, a tournament which is like a dream come true for him. On the other hand, Mia Bhuta, the Indian-origin star of the American team, team captain, is also very excited, but for her this World Cup can be a step towards future success.
Both teenagers, both children of Indian fathers, but with very different pasts. Despite different futures and different narratives, they will share the same territory. When India begins its campaign against the United States on Tuesday, India may prove to be the underdog against the US, which is stronger than India in every respect.

Mia is the first Indian-origin player to represent the US women’s team at any level in the Football World Cup. He said, “I am very thrilled because it was my dream to play the World Cup. I think the Indian team will be a strong opponent.” Miya, who lives in Petersburg, USA, said, “I really hope that my team and the Indian team can inspire young girls in this country to play football.” ‘
