India exacted sweet revenge of their last edition defeat as they beat defending champions Afghanistan 2-1 in the summit clash in a dominating display to lift the South Asian Football Federation Cup in Thiruvananthapuram last night.

"Congratulations Team India for lifting the SAFF cup or the 7th time. That extra time winner from @chetrisunil11 was mind blowing!" Kohli wrote on his twitter handle. India had lost to Afghanistan 0-2 in the 2013 final.
