In what can only be termed as the dullest outing by the national team in the recent past, the Indian football team played out a slow, boring 0-0 draw against Sri Lanka in its second match of the SAFF Championship 2021 campaign in Male, Maldives. With the draw, India have just two points from two games. India are third on the five-team table from which the top two will make the final. Nepal lead with six points from two games while Bangladesh are second with four points from two matches. Senior journalists Sharda Ugra, Jaydeep Basu and Siddhanth Aney discuss the poor outing and the larger implications of the match on the Igor Stimac era in Indian football.
