2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup: Sachin Tendulkar's inspiring message for India U-17 team

Mumbai: As India U-17 football team gears up for FIFA U-17 World Cup that begins today, master blaster Sachin Tendulkar shared his best wishes for the team.

He took to Twitter to say "From tomorrow, the U-17 World Cup will be played in India. It is a big moment for all of us. The kind of response the tournament has garnered, it is simply incredible. I am very happy about it. But here, India have a great opportunity to prove something on and off the field. Off the field we need to show that we are good hosts and how we have responded to such a big tournament and on the field how tough we are as opposition are to play against.

I am so sure that the boys are going to go there and give their best. Come on India. Dikha do. All the very best boys," he said in a video uploaded on Twitter.
