Maldives win the first ever title in their football history after beating their arch rivals India in the SAFF Championship.

The only goal of the match played at the Sugathadasa Stadium in Colombo came at the 43rd minute of the second half when Mukhthaar Naseer shot the ball at bullet-speed from outside the box, past the Indian goalkeeper and into the Indian goal. [Haveeru]
