The Blue Tigers created history by beating Kenya by 2-0 at the Mumbai Football Arena on Sunday night to lift the inaugural Intercontinental Cup trophy, thanks to a brace by captain Sunil Chhetri.
Inspite of a 3-0 drubbing in the group stage against India, Kenya managed to qualify for the final courtesy a 4-0 win over Chinese Taipei in their final group match.
Kenyan football fans hoped to see a turnaround in the summit clash but were left disappointed. As such they took to Twitter to throw a fit at their team.
Kenya played a football match and lost 2-0 to India? I don’t care what level of player Kenya fielded but you lost a match to India? — Star Lord (@Rickyboshe) June 10, 2018

N our national team was ass-whiped by the Indians twice within a week in a football match. The same Indians who ass-whip their employees here in Kenya in their 'business'. https://t.co/MJP9StaMvf— Call Me Pekiro (@Pekiro) June 10, 2018
