India was crowned the champions of the South Asian Football Federation (SAFF) Championship for a record 9th time after beating Kuwait in a harrowing encounter that couldn’t separate the two sides after 120 minutes of end-to-end football.
The Sunil Chhetri-led India side added the 9th SAFF Championship title to their collection when they faced Kuwait in the final at the Kanteerava Stadium on Tuesday. This was the second meeting between the two sides in this tournament with the earlier group stage meeting ending in a 1-1 draw.
It is all down to the ultimate game of the tournament which decides who will claim the SAFF Championship trophy today at Sree Kanteerava Stadium, Bengaluru. It will be a feisty contest between India - 8 time winners and Kuwait, who have been invited to the tournament.
The SAFF Championship semifinal between India and Lebanon has much more at stake than just a final spot. The winner will not just advance to the final, but will also take the final Pot 2 spot for the upcoming World Cup qualification cycle. As per the latest FIFA rankings, India ranks 100 while Lebanon has dropped to 101. But the point difference of 0.98 is small enough to be swept by a Lebanon win.
