Dyaan Birring’s Asia Cup Final Experience

February 10, 2015

Dyaan Birring being 7 years of age is a young, dynamic and competitive Indian soccer player.  He is the son of Suky Birring whom himself has been playing competitive soccer for the past 30 years and is a very well-known player of Sydney Sikhs soccer club.

Due to Sydney Sikhs relationship with the Western Sydney Wanderers A League side and its representation of an Indian soccer team in the U12, U16 and men’s open in the Western Sydney Wanderers FC Asian Youth Cup, Sydney Sikhs was asked if one of its young players would like to be a player mascot in the ASIA CUP 2015 final between Australia and South Korea at Homebush last Sunday. It meant that a young Indian would be holding the hand of one player from either the finalist teams and would be walking out onto the ground in front of acrowd of 90,000 and worldwide television audience of over 100 million people.

Dyaan was chosen to walk onto the ground holding the hand of an Australian player,  Massimo Luongo. Incidentally Luongo scored Australia’s first goal in the final which Dyaan was so ecstatic about.  Dyaan represented himself, his family and his Indian community impeccably and all are proud of his efforts.  He was most excited and anxious prior to the event and bubbling with joy after the event.  A memory that will stay with this young Indian forever and for his father it was one of the proudest moments of his life.
