The Prime Minister tweeted:

“India crowned champions, yet again! The Blue Tigers reign supreme at the SAFF Championship 2023! Congrats to our players. The Indian Team’s remarkable journey, powered by the determination and tenacity of these athletes, will continue to inspire upcoming sportspersons.”

India, who are 100th in the latest FIFA rankings, won their ninth SAFF Championship 2023 in 14 editions. This was India’s second silverware on the trot after clinching the Intercontinental Cup last month.

After the regulation time ended 1-1 and neither team could score in the extra time, the final came down to penalties. Kuwait’s captain Hajjeia missed the decisive spotkick in sudden death.
