Is it a new dawn for Indian football?Yesterday was a special day for Indian football. First, the Indian Under-16 National team defeated reigning Asian Under-16 champion Iraq by a solitary goal at the WAFF Under-16 Championship in Amman, Jordan. Indian player Bhuvenesh scored the goal during extra time.
The second victory was much sweeter. Indian Under-20 National team stunned Argentina's Under-20 team 2-1 in its last match at the COTIF Cup held in Spain. Argentina is the most successful Under-20 team in World Cup history. Indian team played against this most powerful team with ten players most of the time, when an Indian player was shown a red card in the match.
Is it a new dawn, or, have I started dreaming too early? We will decide later. First, let us congratulate India's Under-16 Football team and Under-20 Football team.
