AFC U-16: Indian boys go down fighting


Kuala Lumpur, October 1: A valiant Indian U-16 national team went down fighting 0-1 against the Korea Republic in the quarterfinals of the AFC U-16 Championship at the Petaling Jaya Stadium in Kuala Lumpur here on Monday.

Jeong Sangbin’s strike in the 67th minute for Korea ensured that it was a déjà vu for India from their clash in 2002, when the Colts had lost 1-3 to the same opponents at the same stage. However, the Indian colts on this day fought hard and did not surrender until the final whistle, defending with their lives and committing to every tackle – conceding a goal after 337 minutes of play in the tournament.
