The Indian Football team has moved ahead in the World Cup 2018 qualification tournament of the Asian countries.
India faced Nepal in the opening tie and managed to get better of them after a tough tussle.
The first leg that India had played on the home turf, they had won that easily by 2-0, but, the return leg posed a tougher challenge for them with Nepalese players playing with extra bit of fire in their belly.
The Indians, however, weathered the storm and were able to play a draw to make sure that the lead that they had achieved playing at home, it remained intact.
India has not been a Football mad region traditionally, but recently, with Indian Super League taking place there and some of the legends featuring in that tournament; the people have started taking interest in the game.
A decent crowd was present in Assam to watch the first leg of the India Versus Nepal tie.
If India qualifies for the World Cup, though it’s too tough a prospect to even hope for at this point of time, it would go a long way in the development of Football in the country of thousands of millions of population.
The Indian Super League was a great success in its inaugural edition and there is 100% chance that the second edition will also take place in the winters later this year.
Playing alongside and against quality foreign players in the Indian Super League helps the Indian players become better and better and that might result in India turning into a power Football team in a few years’ time.
India has never played in a Football World Cup so far and right now, they are at their lowest position in the World rankings.
