Bengaluru Football Club were brilliant today as they completely dominated the DEFENDING AFC CUP Champions and sailed through 4-2 on aggregate (3-1 on the night).
That was a truly historic victory! An Indian club enters the AFC CUP FINAL for the FIRST TIME EVER!
How fitting that it was Sunil Chettri's majesty that got them there! Vineeth, Lyngdoh, Rubio, Anto - everyone did their bit for Bengaluru Football Club as did the super crowd.
This has been A FANTASTIC NIGHT for Indian Football, and Twitter exploded with pride!
The crowd truly was EPIC!!
The always awesome West Block Blues, East Block, North, South – it didn’t really matter as the entire stadium got together to cheer their heroes.
This game has united India like only sport can. Just that, in this case, it is because of FOOTBALL! and not cricket – what a euphoric feeling as an Indian football fan.
Hehe Vinayakk bhai, it very well could be!
SUNIL CHETTRI IS AN ABSOLUTE LEGEND. I do not apologise for writing that in all caps. He always, ALWAYS, delivers when it matters – and he was truly majestic today. Twitterati India edition rightly worships him -
Celebs from all over poured in with their wishes too –
No need to worry Harsha, India’s Captain’s got this!
BFC attacked constantly, and this was JUST reward for their enterprise.
And pure class from the defending champions (who are also the Malaysian champs)
ONE SMALL STEP FOR BENGALURU, A GIANT LEAP FOR INDIAN FOOTBALL
