India won the SAFF Suzuki Cup football tournament

January 2016, Sports
In Brief:

Sunil Chetri scored one of the most important goals of his career & snatched an unlikely win for India in the final of the SAFF Suzuki Cup football tournament against Afghanistan. The young Indian players, backed by a vociferous crowd of around 35,000, stood up admirably to the experienced Afghanistan side. They were able to choke the free flowing style of their opponents. They showed enough verve and keenness to win the ball, and didn’t provide too many opportunities for the Afghan midfielders to take control.
The result: India 2 (Jeje 72, Chetri 101) bt Afghanistan 1 (Zubayr 70).
