Indian Football Team conceded six goals in their humiliating 6-0 loss against UAE at the Zabeel Stadium in Dubai on Monday. The last time India allowed the opposition to score six or more goals was way back on 14th November 2010, when Kuwait beat them 9-1. Coincidentally, that match was also played in UAE. Mohammed Rafi was the only Indian to find his name on the scoresheet on that occasion. India followed up that defeat with another 5-0 loss against the UAE four days later.

Since then, however, India have qualified for the AFC Asian Cup twice and the Blue Tigers have improved their game considerably. With the latest 6-0 loss to the UAE though, all the hard work of the past seems to be undone.

But this still wasn't India's heaviest defeat in their history. The Blue Tigers' biggest loss post-Independence came in 1955 when the Soviet Union beat them 10-1 in a friendly match.
