So close but yet so far – Syria lose the Nehru Cup final

September 1st, 2009 · No Comments · Culture

In a repeat of 2007’s final – India have beaten Syria to keep hold of the Nehru Cup.

It was a much closer match than last time, with the two sides remaining level for the full 90 minutes. The game went to extra time, where both sides scored a single goal.

Syria were favourites to win the tournament, and had not conceded a single goal in any of their matches.

The final had to be decided on penalties. India got 5 in the net, Syria got 4.

The home crowd of 15,000 mainly Indians went wild. Congratulations to them. Commiserations to Syria.
