India beaten by Nepal, but make to SAFF Cup semis

Sep 5 2013, 10:06am CDT | by IANS

Kathmandu, Sep 5 (IANS) A last gasp goal by Syed Rahim Nabi in their shock 1-2 loss to Nepal carried India into the semi-finals, thanks to their win against Pakistan after the two teams were tied on goal difference at the conclusion of the group phase of the SAFF Cup football tournament here Thursday.

Kathmandu, Sep 5 — A last gasp goal by Syed Rahim Nabi in their shock 1-2 loss to Nepal carried India into the semi-finals, thanks to their win against Pakistan after the two teams were tied on goal difference at the conclusion of the group phase of the SAFF Cup football tournament here Thursday.

Both India and Pakistan were tied on zero goal difference after Pakistan beat Bangladesh 2-1 in their last Group A match. But India moved into the final four on account of their 1-0 win against Pakistan.

Nepal also made the semi-finals as they top the teams from Group A. India will play either the Maldives or Afghanistan in the last-four.

It took an acrobatic Nabi's brilliant side-volley in injury time to silence the home crowd but only for a short spell. Nabi met Jewel Raja Shaikh's centre from the right to reduce the margin for India.

"We knew Nepal were a very good team. They were quick and have some very good quality players. They did threaten us but didn't have clear chances in the first half," national coach Wim Koevermans said.

"In the second half, we kicked long and it was easy for them to defend. I want to congratulate Nepal on their victory but at the same time, it was our aim to advance to the semis which we eventually did," he added.

"Players need to follow plan but it didn't really happen. We look forward to play the fourth final on 9th."

Carry on Mumbai

Aug 27 2014 10:00pm CDT | Source: Spectator Magazine

Viewers who like their TV journalism hard-hitting should probably avoid Hotel India, a new BBC2 series about the Taj Mahal Palace in Mumbai. The tone of Wednesday’s episode was set immediately when the narrator introduced us to ‘one of the oldest and grandest hotels in the world’, where ‘no detail is too small or demand too great’, and there’s ‘an army of staff dedicated to flawless service’. To prove it, head of housekeeping Indrani then strode fearsomely down a corridor like a ...
