#AFCU16 Qualifiers Highlights: India Vs Uzbekistan

India share spoils with Uzbekistan, qualify for 2020 AFC U-16 Championship The India U-16 National Team played a 1-1 draw against hosts Uzbekistan on Sunday (September 22, 2019) to finish on top of Group B and qualify for the AFC U-16 Championship Bahrain 2020 to be held next year. The Indian colts, coached by Bibiano Fernandes, finished on 7 points from 3 matches - the same as Uzbekistan but qualified as group winners by virtue of better goal difference (+10) in comparison to Uzbekistan’s goal difference of +3. India had earlier beaten Turkmenistan U-16, and Bahrain U-16 by identical 5-0 margins. India had gained the lead in the 68th minute when Sridarth tapped the ball home off a rebound, but even with the hosts levelling at the 81st minute, the Indians were not overawed despite a hostile crowd backing the Uzbeks. This is India’s third consecutive entry to the AFC U-16 Championships, and 9th overall. Since 2011, this is India’s 4th entry to the AFC U-16 Championships, the previous ones being in 2011, 2015, and in 2017. https://ift.tt/2NsudZA #IndianFootball #AFCU16 #BackTheBlue
