TWITTER REACTIONS: India 1-0 Kyrgyzstan

Jeje India

India came into this game high on confidence, winning 7 games in a row after defeating Nepal 2-0 in the latest one. At rank 100, which is a milestone for the national team in recent times, they face their toughest test this year in the form of Kyrgyzstan, who sit at rank 132.

India passed the test with flying colours, winning it 1-0 in the end, with Sunil Chhetri scoring the winner. The fans cheered, the flags stood high and the players celebrated at the full-time whistle, after a narrow but a deserved victory. Kudos to Kyrgyzstan for getting in and making it tough for the team.

Good news for the Blues came in the form of their team lineup, as Chhetri made a return. ย 

Moreover, the atmosphere was brilliant

And the game started

The first clear chance of the game fell to Mirlan, the Kyrgyzstan captain.

Kyrgyzstan dominated for the first 35 minutes, putting India under pressure

But then the chances arrived for India. Jeje couldnโ€™t convert

And India were given a scare before halftime

The half ended at a stalemate for both sides

A happy interval selfie!

Chances came for India as soon as the second half started. They were extremely wasteful though.

But it was Kyrgyzstanโ€™s turn to dominate again

India were defending well

And then came the decisive goal!

It was then when India started to become comfortable

The only downfall of the game was the really evident finishing problems India had throughout the match

But resilient defending and a poacherโ€™s goal meant India won the match

Selective players were noticeable, and deserve appreciation

Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, who was a wall today, and let nothing past him.

Jeje, whoโ€™s finishing disappointed. But letโ€™s not take away that magnificent assist for Chhetriโ€™s goal. Class.

And of course, man of the match, Sunil Chhetri

India made us proud

Maybe one day sirโ€ฆ
