The goal was to win. Bangladesh wanted to carry the happy memory of the victory against Sri Lanka in this match as well. But it did not happen. But that's what happened. That is more or less what.

It is a great achievement to draw 1-1 with strong opponent India, especially for the red-green representatives if it is with a team of ten people. Then there is no point. A draw in a thrilling fight is the equivalent of that win.

Sunil Chhetri's goal gave India the lead in the 26th minute of the match at the Rashmi Dhandu Stadium in Male, the capital of the Maldives. Oscar Brujan's side has thwarted seven-time champions India with a record-breaking SAFF Championship match in a breathtakingly high-voltage match.

After the break, Bishwanath Ghosh left the field in the 54th minute after seeing a red card. The power of Jamal Bhuiyan decreases. However, defender Yasin Arafat equalized for Bangladesh after 20 minutes though a spectacular header.

In this draw against India, Bangladesh remained undefeated in the thirteenth edition of SAFF. After the 1-0 win against Sri Lanka, this time the draw. After playing two matches, the capital of Coach Oscar Brujan's disciples stood at 4 points. On the other hand, India collected only 1 point as they drew their first match.
