Internet Desk: India is all set to create a new record in the history of FIFA U17 World Cup. With two matches remaining in the grand tournament and just 6,000 spectators behind, the host nation is set to get past China as the best –attendant of FIFA U17 World Cup history. The third place and the final match of the tournament will be played at the Salt Lake Stadium on Saturday.

Spain beat Mali 3-1 in the second semi-final last night at the DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai where 37,487 spectators came to watch the game. It took the overall tally to 12,24,027. It is just 6,000 behind the total attendance which was recorded back in 1985 during the inaugural edition of the tournament.

The final attendance here at the Salt Lake Stadium is all set to be a full house of 66,687 with all the tickets sold out well in advance.

Relocated in less than 48 hours' notice, the Kolkata fans did not disappoint as the organisers recorded an official attendance of 63,881 for the England-Brazil semifinal today.

The record attendance at this edition has been in the quarters between Brazil and Germany in Kolkata too.
