FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017: Germany beat Costa Rica 2-1 in Group C opener

Margao, Oct 7 (UNI) Germany largely controlled their Group C opener in the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017 against Costa Rica, but they were made to wait until the 89th minute at Jawaharlal Nehru Statdium at Fatorda in Margoa in South Goa when Noah Awuku's goal gave them the full three points.
The Costa Rican defence kicked themselves after failing to properly clear a late cross, which the substitute finished with confidence.
Indeed, the Europeans were unfortunate to be even on the scoresheet after dominating the opening half following a glaring miss in the early going by Jose Alfaro. It could have put Los Ticos ahead.
Nicolas Kuehn was often the playmaker while starlet Jann-Fiete Arp the danger man in the box for Germany. It was the Hamburg striker who opened the scoring with a deft chip in the 21st minute after Kuehn won the ball in midfield and split the defence with his pass.
A precise finish into the corner of the net just after the hour mark by Andres Gomez made the score 1-1, and the match looked to be heading to a draw in spite of Germany’s run of play. But Awuku became the late hero for Christian Wuck's men.
In the next group games Germany will face Iran while Costa Rica will meet Guinea.
