Indian Football Team won their inaugural SAFF cup against Sri Lanka today by a scoreline of 2 – 0 as Robin Singh scored twice. Today at Trivandrum, India, the Indian dominated the game from beginning to end finishing with 78% possession. The win would give Indian coach Stephen Constantine a lot of relief as he was under immense pressure due to India’s lacklustre performance in the World Cup qualifying games.

India created a host of chances during the first half but Sri Lankan defence held tight till halftime. 5 minutes into the second half Sunil Chhetri muscled inside the Lanka defence and sent a brilliant cross towards Robin Singh who calmly tucked it in. After the goal the Lankans went into a shell and started defending all out but Sunil Chhetri created another brilliant cross from the left flank at the 72nd minute which Robin Singh managed to put past the goalkeeper.

A bad news for Indian Squad would be Robin Singh’s injury which he picked up while scoring his second goal. He was replaced by Lallianzuala.
