“Indian Football rewrites History” after win over Mauritius, previous record was made in 1964

“Indian Football rewrites History” after win over Mauritius, previous record was made in 1964




The Indian Football team have now broken all records having won eight games on the trot since the AFC Asian Cup Qualifiers Playoff Round 1 match against Laos on June 2, 2016.

Earlier, it was from 1962 to 1964 that the Indian National Team had won seven International matches on the trot.

 Speaking on the Indian team’s record, national team coach Stephen Constantine said, “It (winning eight matches on a trot) will mean nothing unless we qualify for the AFC Asian Cup 2019. That’s where my goal lies and it will be so. I’m not a person who goes by the history.”




Constantine further mentioned that their main aim is to get into the right shape before taking on Macau. He also shared the credit with the backroom staff and thanked them.

India came back from a goal down to edge past Mauritius 2-1 in their first game of the Tri-Nation football tournament here at the Mumbai Football Arena on Saturday.

Jean Mervyn Jocelyn (15th) gave the visitors a shock lead before Robin Singh (37th) restored parity and substitute Balwant Singh (62nd) scored the winner.

Another debutant, Manvir Singh almost made it 3-1 for India with an excellent effort in the dying minutes of the match.



India will take on St Kitts & Nevis next on August 24 while Mauritius and St Kitts & Nevis will cross swords on August 22.
