Kolkata: During the sweet symphony of organizing probably the most successful FIFA U17 World Cup, The AIFF President Praful Patel and the LOC Director of the FIFA U17 World Cup Mr Javier Ceppi have found themselves in an unexpected trouble.

A police complaint has been lodged against FIFA U17 World Cup tournament director Javier Ceppi and All India Football Federation President Praful Patel by an organisation in Guwahati for misleading the people in the city.

The complaint was filed by Tai Ahom Juva Chatra Parishad, Assam (TAYCPA) at Basistha police station on Wednesday after the FIFA U17 World Cup semifinal between Brazil and England, held on Wednesday, was shifted from Guwahati to Kolkata on account of poor playing conditions at the Indira Gandhi Athletic stadium.

However, TAYCPA alleged that was not the case and FIFA and AIFF have misled the people of Assam.

Today, The AIFF President Praful Patel said in a press conference at Kolkata, "This is something on which I will be reluctant to make any comment. Whatever happened, it's happened and we don't have any official comment on that."

The conditions at the stadium had come under scrutiny after the quarter-final clash between Ghana and Mali last Saturday, with the Ghanaian coach blasting the soggy outfield and FIFA's decision to carry on with that game amid heavy rain.

But TAYCPA felt that since the rains had stopped by Monday evening, the semifinal should not have been shifted to Kolkata.
