The Indian National Team at the Nehru Gold Cup:
The Tournament was originally an annual feature but due to financial restraints of the AIFF and because of FIFA's crowded international calendar, it is now carried out every two years. The tournament has been carried out 12.times so far but hosts India have never reached the Final. Their best performance came at the last meet in Kochi 1997 reaching the semifinals but losing unluckily against Iraq!
