we ve won it

india have beaten syria.
i could nt watch the match,neither did i watch any of the matches.
all i managed to see was the opening ceremony when the president Pratibha Patil
inaugurated the first match between India and Cambodia.
Priya Ranjan Dasmunshi was jumping like a kid and Sheila Dixit gave the cup.
Its a great moment for Indian football and more should be done to build up the tempo from here.

it starts on the 17th of this month in new delhi and there are six international teams.iran might back out and then it would be five teams.that is not a great news but what is great is that the tournament is being revived after 10 years.
