India clinch an awesome victory in the SAFF Cup Final against the mighty Afghanistan team with the brilliant strikes from Sunil Chhetri and Jeje Lalpekhlua on Sunday night.

Afghanistan got the first lead when Zubayr Amiri scored for defending champions . But Jeje Lalpekhlua, who was in magnificent  form throughout the series, scored the equalizer in the next minute from a brilliant pass from Sunil Chetri. None of the team could score another goal for the rest of the 90th minutes and the game continues to extra time.

Indian captain Chhetri then rose to the challenge as he scored the winner in the 10th minute of the extra-time to give India a sweet revenge of their 2013 final loss to Afghanistan.

The most valuable player of this Tournament is Indian Captain Sunil Chetri.
