Viking clap for a draw vs Bangladesh another shameless act: Fans slam Indian team on social media

first_imgIndian football fans who were present at the Salt Lake stadium in Kolkata on Tuesday night witnessed a disappointing performance from Sunil Chhetri’s team as they managed to hold on to a 1-1 draw against Bangladesh in their FIFA World Cup qualifier.But nevertheless the Blue Pilgrims (Indian football team’s fan army) along with others did their Viking clap celebration with the Indian football team after the match got over.The team’s Viking clap celebration has become quite popular among fans but the ones on social media were not impressed as India, who are ranked 104, couldn’t beat 187th-ranked Bangladesh and on top of that were seen celebrating the drawn result after the game.Saad Uddin gave Bangladesh the lead in the 42nd minute and the visitors looked like going back home with all the three points in the Group E match of World Cup qualifying second round match.Adil Khan, however, ensured that India at least secure a point from the home match as he rose highest to nod home a Brandon Fernandes corner kick in the 88th minute. A defeat at home would have severely dented India’s hopes of advancing in the next round.India doing the viking clap after 1-1 draw against bangladesh. CRINGE AF! #INDBANAneesh Sangma (@aneeshsangma) October 15, 2019It’s almost a miracle that India didn’t lose (plus two penalties weren’t given to Bangladesh). Not too sure why the players are doing that Icelandic ‘Viking Thunder Clap’ before the crowds. Bangladesh could have eaten India today along with their lau (loki) and thor.advertisementindi hazra (@indihazra) October 15, 2019Man United Indian Football TeamConsistently being shit.#INDBAN #mufcVedansh (@NathaniVedansh) October 15, 2019Don’t know how many players realise that it is 2 points lost. Sunil had a poor game by his standards but he looked like the only one who was frustrated at the end. Said F*** **f halfway through the Viking clap and walked away. #INDBANKarthik Raj (@kartcric) October 15, 2019Unpopular opinion :- This Indian team lacks in quality and depends on individual brilliance. Nothing has improved in our football yet Only the supporters backing the Indian football team has increased and players doing the Viking clap for the fans is something new#INDBANSayan Bagchi (@HeyAmSayan) October 15, 2019Poor performance from @IndianFootball. Viking clap for a draw against a side like Bangladesh is another shameless act.#INDBAN #IndianFootball #BlueTigers #bluepilgrims #FootballUnitedShojin R Chandran (@shojinrc8) October 15, 2019Bangladesh are ranked 207, had better chances , two very close penalty shouts and a lot better game plan than us and we just saw people viking clap that performance and Adil Khan fist pumping at the end. #IndianFootball #INDBAN #worldcupqualifierJayant Pande (@GoliNahiMarenge) October 15, 2019India had lost to Oman 1-2 in their opening match before holding Asian champions Qatar to a goal-less draw in their previous match.They now have two points from three matches, while Bangladesh stay at the bottom with one point from three games.”Our scoring incapability was the reason why we didn’t win. We conceded very silly goal. We can’t expect to win the game if you concede such a goal. Their goalkeeper was my man-of-the-match,” India coach Igor Stimac told reporters after the match.”We deserved to win this game. We pushed until the end and created enough chances to win the game. But our scoring was not good enough.”I’m not happy with first 45 minutes. Our players in the back were not passing well. When you play against a team like Bangladesh who put more in defence you need to pass well from behind,” the Croatian said.Also Read | World Cup Qualifer: Igor Stimac rues his players’ inability to score goalsAlso Read | FIFA 2022 World Cup Qualifier: Adil Khan equaliser helps India hold Bangladesh to 1-1 drawlast_img
