And now on Thursday, Manisha became the first Indian football to feature in a UEFA Champions League game.

Following the epic moment with Manisha make her Champions League debut, a video of which went viral on social media, India football star Gurpreet Singh Sandhu hailed the youngster for her achievement.

“Tracking the updates where Manisha Kalyan becomes the first Indian footballer to play in a Champions League game. What a moment, and what a hero. What she’s gone and done needs to be spoken about louder,” he tweeted.

What makes Manisha’s achievement even more significant is that it came at a time when Indian football is going through big turmoil with FIFA having suspended the All India Football Federation.
