The India under-16 squad is leaving for a World exposure tour on Monday, July 20, as part of Under 17 World Cup preparation, which will be held in India, the AIFF Media reported.

The colts will first tour Germany for almost two months. Followed by the Germany tour they will fly for AFC U-16 Qualifier competition in Tabriz City, Iran and Albir Garden Sports (AGS) Cup in the in Spain in the third week of September 2015.

India’s exposure tour has been organised in close coordination with the German Football Association (DFB).

The AIFF media in its report said, “the Indian colts will be playing a minimum of 15-16 practice matches including ones against youth Teams of Bayern Munich, RB Salzburg, amongst others.”

India U-17 World Cup Head Coach Nicolai Adam believed the exposure Tour will “help the Team in the long run.”

All India Football Federation General Secretary Kushal Das highlighted AIFF’s objective in providing “best possible” exposure for the squad.

“The preparation in Germany before the AFC U-16 Qualifiers will be good for the boys. The AFC Qualifiers will be tough with Iran, Bahrain and Lebanon in our Group,” he was quoted as saying by the AIFF Media Team.

Regarding India colt’s participation in AGS Cup in Spain Kushal Das said, “I have been at the AGS Cup and stay aware of the level of competition it offers. Many International Youth Teams take that as a platform to prepare for their European rounds. It will be huge for the boys.”

“We had already mentioned the squad will embark on a series of exposure tours all round the Globe in different Footballing environments. Germany have been synonymous with Youth Development and training at venues having the best of facilities and playing with some of the best youth Teams will help in the development of our World Cup squad,” Kushal Das stated.
