  |   Football / La Liga / FA Cup / EPL / ISL / UEFA

🇮🇳 battled to a hard fought 2⃣-1⃣ win over Afghanistan after extra time🕕 in what was a memorable final for the host nation. India avenged their defeat at the hands of the same opponent 2 years back after goals⚽ from Jeje Lalpekhlua(72') and Sunil Chhetri(101') overcame Zubayr Amiri's(70') opener. Both teams started the match cautiously and the defending champions took the lead😯 in the second half after a precise shot from Amiri only for Jeje to equalise✌ immediately for the Blue Tigers🐅. Chhetri then grabbed the match winner👏 in the first half of extra time and India held on to win their 7th SAFF Cup🏆 despite 2⃣ strong appeals for penalty from Afghanistan, which the Japanese referee denied❌.
