Nehru Cup: Nehru Cup Truimph Will Inspire Indians - Indian PM

India defeated Syria 6-5 in the penalty shootout and thus retained the Nehru Cup, they won two years ago by downing the same opposition at the same venue.

With this, India now has completed a hat-trick of titles in the last three years, which surely is a good sign for football in the country.

Dr.Manmohan Singh said, “Congratulations on your remarkable win last evening. It was a magnificent performance and the whole country is proud of you. The victory, I am sure, will inspire sports men and women across the country.”

Not often do you hear politicians congratulating Team India as they were never praised in the previous two triumphs of the AFC Challenge Cup 2008 and the Nehru Cup 2007.

Things are surely changing for good in Indian football.
