The 22-year-old was in sensational form against Pakistan in the SAFF Cup semifinal...

India reached the final of the SAFF Cup 2018 campaign as they masterminded a 3-1 triumph over Pakistan.

The win came courtesy of goals from young strikers Manvir Singh and Sumeet Passi. But it was Manvir who grabbed the limelight 

After a goalless first-half, Manvir scored his first in the 49th minute. Ashique Kuruniyan hared down the wings and sent in a cross from the left which was deflected in smartly by Manvir.

The second goal was even better. In the 86th minute, Lallianzuala Chhangte ran down the middle of the pitch, evaded two defenders and passed it to Vinit Rai who rolled it to Manvir who blasted it home. 

Ultimately, Manvir's stellar show gave India a momentous win and he is rightly named as Goal's Asian Player of the Week! 

Congrats!
