An Aniket Jadhav hattrick led the India U-16 national team to a 4-1 win over Austrian opponents AKA Tirol U-16 on Tuesday (September 1) in Tirol, Austria.

Coming off a 3-5 defeat against Germany’s SpVgg Unterhaching, the Indian colts scored as early as the 2nd minute to establish their grip on the game. Komal blasted his opportunity into the back of the net to open the goal scoring tally of the Indian team.

Two quick-fire Aniket goals in the 34th and the 38th minute meant that the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup bound India team would go into the half-time with a comfortable 3-0 lead.

The Indian team had drawn 2-2 in their previous encounter against AKA Tirol. However, this time the colts were determined to cash-in on a win.

Aniket completed his hattrick in the 58th minute, and gave India an unassailable lead.

The Austrian opponents reduced their deficit in the 73rd minute and at the end of time, the score-line read 4-1 in favor of the Indian colts.
