Indian football coach Stephen Constantine has resigned after India crashed out of the ongoing AFC Asian Cup. India needed only a draw against Bahrain in the final Group match to qualify to the knockout stage for the first time. India’s hopes to enter the knockout stage was dashed when a last minute penalty was awarded to Bahrain after Indian captain Pronay Halder committed a foul.
India saw a vast improvement in their rankings under Stephen Constantine and was also able to guide India to the Asian Cup after eight years. He said his objective when he took over in 2015 was to qualify for the Asian Cup and that he had achieved it.
