It was the first Indian goal in a football world cup, and Delhi’s JL Nehru stadium exploded with joy. That elation is plastered on Jeakson Singh (No 15), from Manipur, who nodded the ball in from a cross into Colombia’s net at the FIFA Under-17 World Cup. No matter that India lost 1-2, or that the distraction caused by joyful celebrations prompted by this goal led to an equaliser in a minute. This is an iconic moment.
