India win AFC Cup

India win the AFC Cup 2008 in New Delhi.

I know I don't cover Asian football scene but this is too hard to miss and ignore considering am Indian so call me ignorant or biased but yeah well.

India won the game 4-1 against Tajikistan after Sunil Chettri scored a hat-trick to get India the glorious victory.The fourth was scored by the invincible Baichung Bhutia.

India now qualify for 2011 Asian Games automatically,a feat they only managed in 1984.

Game had been shifted to Delhi after Hyderabad the original venue was not able to be prepared with a horrible pitch after a downpour left the final postponed and also on the verge of being shifted to Malaysia.

Great achievement for India.GO INDIAN FOOTBALL!
