India-bound Mexico team members and their families are safe after the devastating earthquake and their World Cup U-17 team will reach Kolkata on October 4, PTI reported.
“All the families of U-17 Mexican delegation are fine, thank god,” Mexico team’s press coordinator Valvanera Garcia Cuevas was quoted as saying.
The team, which is preparing for the U-17 World Cup in Spain, will arrive in Kolkata as per schedule on October 4 for their group F matches at the Salt Lake Stadium.
