Doungel helps Blue Tigers earn point In Dushanbe


New Delhi, November 14: The Blue Tigers played out a 1-1 draw against Afghanistan in chilly conditions at the Central Republican Stadium in Dushanbe, Tajikistan on Thursday (November 14, 2019). Afghanistan opened the scoring at the stroke of half-time through Zelfagar Nazary, but super-sub Seiminlen Doungel headed in his first goal for India to equalize in the 93rd minute as the spoils were shared.

With this result, India now have three points from four matches in Group E — this being their third draw in a row. In their previous encounter at home to Bangladesh, it was Adil Khan who scored the equalizer in front of a packed house in Kolkata to earn the Blue Tigers a point.
