The 24-team tournament will be played across six venues between October 6-28 and while the fans are very enthusiastic to witness the first FIFA tournament in the country, there is absolutely no denying that the hosts do not have any realistic chance of progressing far.
In fact, it will be a huge achievement if the team manages to progress from its group which has comprises heavyweights USA, Columbia and Ghana.
But then anything is possible in sports and the whole country is firmly behind the team. The overwhelming support from the fans is surely going to boost the confidence of the players and their confidence is bound to go one notch higher after the message they received from Kohli.
