Twitter Reacts As Sunil Chhetri Lifts India In AFC Asian Cup Qualifiers

Published on:

India reached the top of Group A in the 2019 AFC Asian Cup qualifiers after registering a 1-0 win over Kyrgyzstan, all thanks to an incredible finish from the Indian captain Sunil Chhetri.

Kyrgyzstan were clearly the dominant side but India held on to their nerves and defended Chhetri’s wonder goal to maintain their winning start in the group.

India has now maintained their incredible run of results and Tuesday’s victory was their eight consecutive win in a row (including an unofficial friendly win over Bhutan) and this will now see them climb further in the FIFA World rankings table.

The crucial win has now put India in a comfortable position to qualify for the AFC Asian Cup 2019 in UAE and fans and players celebrated it both in the stadium and on social media.

FootTheBall takes a look at how Twitter reacted.
