In the FIFA Under-17 World Cup, two pre-quarterfinal matches will be played at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi today. While Colombia will take on Germany at 5 PM, the United States will meet Paraguay at 8 PM.

Meanwhile, FIFA Under-17 World Cup tournament director Javier Ceppi has said that the event has been more successful than the ICC World Cup 2011 in terms of spectators turnout.

Talking to reporters in Kolkata yesterday, he said that doors are now open for

India to get next edition's U-20 World Cup.

Taking a 36-match cut-off after the end of group stage, Mr Ceppi said the spectators mark has crossed a phenomenal 8 lakh, which is more than the 2011 Cricket World Cup, and double than what the last edition in Chile had witnessed.

The Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata, which has a capacity of 66,687, will host the final on October 28. It is reported that tickets have been sold out well in advance.
