Friday, November 26, 2021 will forever be etched in the history books of Indian football as the Indian women’s football team defeated the world’s seventh-ranked team Brazil in a three-nation tournament.

It was always going to be a tough task for the Indian team against the better ranked Brazil and Blue Tigresses in the first minute of the game itself. Brazil continued to build up the pressure, but the historic moment came seven minutes later. In a counter-attack, Manisha Kalyan got a cushioned header to the left from Pyari, the young Indian attacking midfielder lofted up the left, entered the box and deflected a low drive that opened India’s account after beating the Brazilian goalkeeper.

Manisha was also the first Indian to score in a top-flight Asian competition, as she found the back of the net for Gokulam Kerala FC in the 2021 AFC Women’s Asian Championship against FC Bunyodkar of Uzbekistan.

The Indian team kept the pressure on hosts Brazil during the first half and ended the half with just one goal.
