Is This The End Of The Indian Football Team?

Yesterday, i.e. on March 26, India witnessed one of its most embarrassing defeats in recent years with a gut-wrenching score of 1-2. The Indian football team suffered an embarrassing defeat against Afghanistan in FIFA qualifiers. Afghanistan team ranks much lower in FIFA rankings than the Indian football team; also, they struggled to put up a team for the qualifiers, and even the team they could put together was not that good. 

Four of their players were not even a part of a club and were not a part of the football season like Indian footballers. Indian football should have easily defeated them; instead, the Indian football team got defeated by them for a second time.

Match Highlights

  • In the 37th minute, Sunil Chhetri scored his 97th international goal in his 150th match.
  • He was substituted in the 67th minute because he had scored a penalty in his 150th match; his face showed signs of urgency and concern.
  • After 30 minutes, when the referee blew the final whistle, Sunil buried his head in his hands and faced the reality of the Indian football team.
  • In the second half of the match, Afghanistani players Rahmat Akbari (71st minute) and Sharif Mukhammad (88th minute) scored two goals against India.
