India win the Nehru Cup…!

The Nehru Cup (International Football Tournament) is a tournament organized by the All India Football Federation. It was launched in 1982, but was not held between 1998 and 2007. After the trophy was won by the Iraq in 1997, it was reinstated only in 2007.
India – whose current FIFA ranking is 156 beat Syria who are ranked 95.
So that’s a bit of cheer for a team that is being called the worst in the world.
That accolade comes from Simon Kuper and leading sports economist Stefan Szymanski.They have called India the wooden spooners of global football arriving at the conclusion by factoring in variables such as population, GDP and football experience.
However despite them having come to such a gloomy and depressing conclusion this victory gives India coach Bob Houghton a hat-trick of titles. He earlier guided the team to the last Nehru Cup crown in 2007 and to the AFC Cup Challenge in 2008.
What was it that Aragorn said ?….”There’s always hope
