Watch: Robin Singh’s stunning goal in FIFA World Cup qualifiers

After five straight defeats to the likes of Oman, Iran and Turkmenistan, India finally savoured victory in their 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign, beating Guam by one goal at the Kanteerava Stadium in Bangalore.

Earlier in the competition, India were beaten 2-1 at Guam, so this victory will serve as some consolation for the 172nd ranked football team. However, as a bonus, this result also puts India in a good position to qualify for the 2019 Asian Cup.

And India have one man to thank – Robin Singh – whose stunning 10th minute strike inspired his team to hold on to the lead despite being reduced to 10 men for more than half the match.

The striker playing at his Bengaluru FC home ground, gathered a pass from club colleague and captain Sunil Chhetri, Cryuff-turned past a Guam defender and curled a looping shot beyond the hapless goalkeeper.
