New Radiant’s win against Bengaluru yesterday not only helped the club to finish on top and reach second round of AFC Cup but also they have given hope to frustrated supporters that Maldivian football is not dead yet.
But shockingly this remarkable 2-0 win has not been recognized by Football Association of Maldives (FAM) in any of their key social media platforms.
Two days prior to the game FAM tweeted about opening of 3 mini grounds and in the morning of AFC Cup match day FAM updated phone number in their facebook page. All that indicates their social media person or team is very much active.
Despite local and international media praising New Radiant for beating India Super League runners up, our football governing body is simply not impressed.
