Jordan vs. India: Twitter reacts to India’s 1-2 loss against Jordan


Firstly, kudos to the Indian football team to field a playing eleven and show sportsmanship spirit enough to play the match. Seven of their 28 players, including key players Jeje and Balwant Singh, were stranded at the Kuwait airport for more than 32 hours and they reached only 20 hours before the kickoff.

If rumors are to be believed, the Indian team didn’t even have their playing kit and a football to practice with. There were talks to cancel the match and promotion from the Indian football team’s social media handles hyping the first ever encounter also stopped. However, the show went on and Jordan eked out the listless Indians.

Gurpreet Singh Sandhu saved a penalty but also conceded one in the most horrendous of the fashions. Debutant Nishu Kumar did pull one back for India and gave a ray of hope, but it proved to be a mere consolation as India lost 2-1. Read Sportsindiashow’s match report here.
