Calcutta, June 18 
The Pakistan team, scheduled to meet India in the Asian under-16 football championship group IV qualifying round opener Tuesday, left for Jamshedpur today.

Their chief coach John Layton, assigned the job under the Asian Football Confederation’s youth development programme, considers India to be their toughest rivals in the group.

The British coach, who took charge five months back, rued the absence of a proper structure of football in Pakistan and said it becomes difficult to spot talent due to this. The players have been training together for a month.
