The Indian U-17 team's World Cup preparation suffered a jolt as it crashed to a 1-5 defeat against hosts Mexico in the opening match of the Four-Nation meet, here on Thursday.

Mexico took the lead as early as the 1st minute and doubled the lead in the 23rd minute to go 2-0 into the break.

In the 53rd minute, India pulled one back after Amarjit Singh converted a spot-kick.

Five minutes later, Mexico regained their two goal advantage. Mexoico then had back-to back strikes in the dying moments to complete the rout.
