St. Petersburg (Russia):  The Indian U-17 football team were thrashed 0-8 by Russia in a group match of the Valentin Granatkin Memorial Cup.

The margin could have been much worse for India had Russia not missed a penalty just before the half-time on Sunday.

The hosts led 5-0 at the interval, according to a release by the All India Football Federation (AIFF).

The first goal came as early as the second minute. India conceded the second 10 minutes later. The third goal was scored in the 21st minute, the fourth happened four minutes later.

The fifth goal, in the 31st minute, was the final goal in the first half.

Russia scored the sixth goal immediately after the changeover. It was 7-0 in the 67th minute and the last goal of the match was scored moments before the final whistle.

India next play Belarus on Tuesday.
