Confirmed his name in India’s football history, by becoming the first player in the country to score in a FIFA tournament.
Jeackson sent a powerful header, following a cross from a corner kick…And when the ball hit the net the crowd was completely enthusiastic. Brilliant moment but short with the second goal of Colombia.
The players showed and excellent level of football, organisation and determination.
This is the proof of the team’s improvement during the last 6 months.
Some months ago, it was impossible for us to even imagine we can compete with such strong teams as USA and Colombia. I’m very proud of the commitment that my players showed on the pitch. We proved that we can play at an higher level. Both coaches (Colombia and USA) said we were a difficult opponent for them due our organisation.
