India could not win against Bangladesh by one goal. Bangladesh 10-1 defeated the team that has won the SAF Championship a maximum of 6 times.
Today, India is stuck with Sri Lanka. The goalless match has made India’s journey uncertain.
With 2 points in 2 matches, it became difficult for India to reach the final. The next two matches are against Maldives and Nepal. If they win both the matches, there will be a possibility of final.
But no one will bet on India winning the next two matches. Bangladesh with 4 points in 2 matches, Bangladesh in two and India in three.
On the other hand, Sri Lanka, which lost to Bangladesh and Nepal, got excited after the draw with India today at the Male National Stadium. Sri Lankan fans kept one end of the gallery drunk from start to finish.
For Sri Lanka, this draw is like winning. So at the end of the extra 6 minutes, a Sri Lankan journalist did not hide his excitement in the press box as soon as the last whistle was blown.
India’s FIFA ranking is 106. Sri Lanka 205. But the Sri Lankans have played great football today, bridging the gap in the rankings. India played with dominance but did not get much chance to score. The Sri Lankan goalkeeper has cleared the team three or four times.
India captain Sunil Chhetri could not take advantage at all. He was not found that way in the whole match. Defender Puslas has been awarded the Matchsera award for his lackluster Indian attack.
The biggest prize came in the third match and got at least one point. That too against India. So the joy of Sri Lanka is also broken.
