Beating favourites AFGHANISTAN , By coming from behind and clinching the title in extra time.
India thus proved kings of SOUTH ASIAN region for the 7th time in 10 finals they have played, this being the 11 the edition of the prestigious championship.
The hero of the final besides each and every player was the captain SUNIL CHHETRI who had a hand or we should say leg in each of the teams moves and also assisted in the 1st goal besides scoring the winner himself. A special mention also to the goalkeeper SANDHU who stood like a ROCK whenever the Afghan forwards tried to cross and score.

What made this victory even more dear was that INDIA was struggling before this tournament as had tasted success in only 1 match and lost 5 for the WORLD CUP QUALIFIERS 2018.
