India striker Sunil faces disciplinary action

IPOH (Malaysia), June 1:
India striker SV Sunil will face a disciplinary action for raising his middle finger at the spectators after scoring the winning goal against Pakistan in the Azlan Shah Cup match.
Sunil’s gesture caught the attention of the tournament director after television replays showed the striker celebrating his 69th minute goal, which sealed the match 2-1 in India’s favour, by throwing a punch in the air with one finger raised as he got off the turf and ran back.
The incident did not come to the notice of officials immediately but slow motion replays of the goal were discussed last night by television commentators. (PTI)
