Football News: Indian women's team qualify for the first time ever to the second round of the Olympic qualifiers

The Indian women’s football team on Tuesday qualified for the Olympic Qualifiers second round for the first time, despite going down to hosts Myanmar 1-2 in a hard-fought clash here. The Indian women’s team advanced to the second round after finishing second in Group C with four points from three matches, behind table-toppers Myanmar. The Indian team, who went into the match with the same starting line-up from their 7-1 win against Bangladesh, was jolted after conceding a goal in just the third minute. Despite being a goal down early in the game, the Indian girls were determined to get the equalizer and were rewarded in the 23rd minute. The 19-year-old Ratanbala Devi scored from a freekick unleashing a sizzling shot into the top corner of the net, leaving the goalie with no chance. Unfortunately, they conceded 7 minutes before full time to give Myanmar the victory.
