India defeats Syria 1-0 in Nehru Cup final

India defeats Syria 1-0 in Nehru Cup final

N.P. Pradeep's 44th minute strike clinched India a 1-0 win over Syria in the final of the Nehru Cup soccer tournament Wednesday.
The title-winning goal for India came through Pradeep's firm grounder after Indian striker Sunil Chettri's header rebounded off the Syrian defenders.
Syria had topped the five-nation preliminary league by winning all of its four matches, including a 3-2 victory over India on Thursday.
The Nehru Cup was revived 10 years after Iraq clinched the last event in 1997. The tournament was earlier a regular feature from 1982 to 1997.
