Asian Classics: Bahrain v Saudi Arabia (2010 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers)
Kuala Lumpur: Football tends to offer a lot in the way of dramatic endings. Round five of the 2010 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers gave us just that when Bahrain and Saudi Arabia faced-off with a place in the Intercontinental Play-off at stake.
New Zealand, triumphant in the OFC Qualifiers, awaited the winners between 2007 AFC Asian Cup runners-up Saudi Arabia and their neighbours Bahrain who had come within a whisker of reaching the FIFA World Cup in their previous attempt four years earlier.
New Delhi: June 4, 2018 will remain etched in the memory of Indian football fans forever. It was on this day that talismanic Sunil Chhetri played his 100th International match – only the second Indian footballer to do so. And he made it even more memorable with a double strike in a 3-0 victory over mighty Kenya.
While a full house clad in Blue braved the incessant rain to reach the Mumbai Football Arena hours before the kick-off, the rest of India remained glued to their television sets to witness history — #Chhetri100.
