India crashed out of SAFF Women’s Championship 2022

Rashmi Kumari Ghishing scored the only goal of the game as the hosts secured a win on a mud-soaked pitch at the Dasharath Stadium.

India crashed out of the SAFF Women’s Championship 2022 after a 1-nil defeat at the hands of hosts Nepal in the semifinals, at the Dasharath Stadium in Kathmandu, on Friday.

Rashmi Kumari Ghishing scored the only goal of the game as the hosts secured a win on a mud-soaked pitch at the Dasharath Stadium.

The home side started off on the front foot, using the left flank on a number of attacks in the opening exchanges.

However, Indian defenders Sweety Devi and Manisa Panna remained alert to the danger and thwarted the hosts’ attacks.

Renu had India’s first real chance of the match in the 12th minute when she darted into the opposition box, but Nepal’s captain and goalkeeper Anjila Subba came off her line to clear it away.

It was Nepal who took the lead in injury time of the first half, when Preeti Rai sent a lot of crosses at Rashmi Ghishing’s feet, as the latter turned and fired it into the bottom corner.

Soumya had one last chance for India with just minutes left on the clock, as she was played through behind the defense by Apurna. The former darted into the box but the ball was swept off her feet by an onrushing defender before she could shoot.

With this result, India was knocked out of the SAFF Women’s Championship semi-final – the first time in the history of the tournament that such an event took place.
