The story has it that India played against Nigeria without shoes, won Nigeria 99-1, our goal scorer died. Did these really happen?

The truth is that India is not just good enough for this story, bnecause they do not play active football apart from playing in Asia. As a matter of fact, India has only qualified for the world cup once- in 1950. This was because Asian countries like the Philippines, Indonesia and Burmese withdrew before the qualification round because of financial constraints. Unfortunately, India also withdrew because of the same cause. So, this answers the myth about the world cup match between Nigeria and India.
