AIFF should consolidate on Nehru Cup win

New Delhi: India’s third consecutive title victory in the Nehru Cup International Football Tournament was a perfect gift for the All India Football Federation’s 75th anniversary celebrations.

The 7-6 win over Cameroon in the tie-break was an incredible feat, as the African country enjoys a 100-plus point’s lead over India in FIFA ranking. Dutch coach Wim Koevermans can be credited for this turnaround of the Indian team, after they slipped to a low following the exit of British coach Bob Houghton last year.
