Sandesh Jhingan stars as India restrict mighty Iran to 3 goals.

Sandesh Jhingan was the reason why India held Iran 1-0 in the first half and it was only a 10 minute window in the beginning of the first half, when India, due to their inexperience at the Topmost level, conceded 2 goals to loose the match 3-0. The Indian defense showed courage that has never been seen before by any Indian team. Sandesh Jhingan was the star defender and definitely the Loosing team’s Man of the Match.

India played Iran in the 2018 Russia World cup Asian qualifiers and it was a No match from the start. Iran are one of the top 50 nations in FIFA rankings and India is not even in the 150. Iran is the Best Asian team and hence the expectation in the International circles was for a scoreline of 6-0 in favour of Iran, Since Iran is known for their attacking play.

The performance by the Lanky defender was summarized by his diving effort when he bravely threw himself in front of the feet of a shooting Iranian Midfielder. Kudos to this Indian team, they have still to go a long way is bringing the crowds back to football.
