Matter of time before India play WC on their own: Rathore

first_imgKolkata, Oct 29 (PTI) Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore today hoped that the stupendous success of FIFA Under-17 World Cup would motivate the countrys budding footballers to improve their game and eye a World Cup qualification in near future.”We have got the start. We should not stop here. I hope we get the U-20 World Cup, so that the start gets even bigger momentum. I believe if things go like this, its not far when India will play in a World Cup on their own,” Rathore said before leaving for the capital.Rathore, who was invited for the U-17 World Cup prize distribution ceremony, said all big sporting organisations like FIFA now have India on their radar and the country should make the best use of it.”Its a matter of pride that the U-17 World Cup came to India. It has taken Indias importance at the world level to greater heights. Now the big competitions and sports which were earlier non-existent in India are feeling the need to come to this country.”The fans response has been fantastic, we broke all records of the most attended World Cup ever,” said Rathore.The Olympics silver medallist said it was time that football became a pan-India thing.”Football is popular only in a few regions like West Bengal, Goa and NorthEast. Its a nice opportunity to make the sport popular all over. We must make full use of this.”We will take full responsibility from the Centre by bringing up more infrastructure and prepare elite athletes by looking after their funding and resources. You have seen the overall infrastructure and the modifications that have come in place have been very satisfying. We now need to be prepared for the upcoming competitions,” he said.advertisementThe former shooter had a special word of praise for the sports loving crowd of Kolkata.”Kolkata has sports lovers. They understand the sport better. They waited for the ceremony to get over even after the match was over. They showed respect to both the teams. My heartfelt thanks to all the fans of Kolkata.”Rathore urged the athletes to be more determined, saying only resources cannot guarantee medals.”If you were to win an Olympic medal only because of the money and funding or resources, then the medals list would have the whos who of the society but thats not the case. Theres something that is very important in each of us and that is the determination. Thats the biggest strength in all of us,” he said.Rathore refused to comment on whether the ministry has directed National Anti Doping Agency (NADA) to conduct random tests of the cricketers during domestic and international cricket matches, being played in India.Rahul Bhatnagar, secretary, ministry of youth affairs and sports, said they have received a letter from WADA complaining about non-compliance in cricket.”I dont have anything to add to that.” PTI TAP CM CMlast_img read more
