    Gurkirat puts on a superb run with both Aniket and Chhetri lurking ahead. He tries to find Aniket near the box but misdirects the pass

  • September 24, 2023 18:23

    India is taking it slow, retaining as much posession as possible before giving away the ball to Min on the right. He advances into the final third and floats in a cross that requires Jhingan to jump and head it away

  • September 24, 2023 18:18

    WHAT A SAVE FROM DHEERAJ. Min attempted to find the back of the net from a long way out, his shot is deflected by an Indian outfit but Dheeraj dives full length to keep it out

  • September 24, 2023 18:12

    ANOTHER BRILLIANT SAVE FROM AUNG! It was Raheem Ali this time, who ran into the box poised to find the back of the net. He tried to find the far corner but Aung gets his hand to the shot as the ball goes away for a corner

  • September 24, 2023 18:11

    CHANCE SQUANDERED! An unmarked Gurkirat ran inside the box and it was just the goalkeeper between him and extending the lead but he hit it straight to Aung

  • September 24, 2023 18:06

    Wonderful defense from Jhingan and Raheem. Naing looked dangerous as he entered the 30 yard box. He tricked Jhingan the first time around but the latter teamed up with Raheem to pressure Naing into giving away posession

  • September 24, 2023 18:04
    45’ Substitution for India

    IN: Gurkeerat : Rahul KP

    Myanmar will start the proceedings and will play right to left this half

  • September 24, 2023 17:49
    Half time

    And that’s the end of the first 45 minutes. Just before the whistle, Rahul recieves a strong warning from the referee after his mistimed challenge on Hein. Point to be noted is that Rahul is already on a yellow card from the last game and a yellow now would mean India will be a man down!

  • September 24, 2023 17:45

    Two minutes added

  • September 24, 2023 17:45

    Naing takes the free kick. Setpiece situation. He tries to go for glory from a long way out but the ball is nowhere near the goal

  • September 24, 2023 17:45

    Counter from Myanmar immediately as skipper Tien runs away on the left flank until Bryce put on a sliding challenge. Free kick for Myanmar but Bryce escapes with just a warning

  • September 24, 2023 17:43

    Corner for India as Narender’s cross is deflected away. Kynshi to take the kick. He serves an inswinging corner, that is punched away by Aung

  • September 24, 2023 17:40

    Wai goes for the long corner this time. Dheeraj punches it away to clear the danger

  • September 24, 2023 17:39

    It is Wai again and it is Chhetri yet again, who heads it away for a corner

  • September 24, 2023 17:39

    Corner for Myanmar. Hein opts for a shorter pass. That eventually leads to Kynshi handling the ball. FRee kick for Myanmar

  • September 24, 2023 17:35

    Corner for India. After repeated shirt pulling, the referee calls three Indian outfits including Chhetri for a verbal warning. Kynshi takes the corner, serves it inside the box, Jhingan tries to head it in but it takes a deflection and Aung grabs it with ease

  • September 24, 2023 17:34

    Chingelsana sends a lofted ball to Rahul on the right. Lin intercepts and clears it away for a corner

  • September 24, 2023 17:33

    Anjukandan comes up with an important tackle inside the box to keep Myanmar from creating opportunities. Hein and Naing teamed up on the left to orchestrate an attack. Naing got the ball at the edge of the box and moves to close quarters with Dheeraj but before he could think of anything, Anjukandan intercepts from the back

  • September 24, 2023 17:29

    Anjukandan initiates an attack for India on the right flank. He progresses deep into the half and floats one inside the box but he misdirects it as the ball goes over the post

  • September 24, 2023 17:27

    Another yellow card and this time it is for the Myanmar skipper Thein. He took one for the team as he put on a rash challenge on Bryce on the left flank, who looked dangerous

  • September 24, 2023 17:24
    23’ IND 1-0 MYA

    Chhetri to take the penalty. Puts it past Aung without trouble! CHHETRI SLOTS IT INTO THE BOTTOM LEFT CORNER AS INDIA TAKES THE LEAD

  • September 24, 2023 17:23

    JUST AS WE SPEAK, RAHIM ALI WINS A PENALTY FOR INDIA! Lin is shown a yellow card for his sliding tackle on Rahim, who was poised to put the ball past Aung

  • September 24, 2023 17:22

    Meanwhile, India continues to struggle in the final third. Chhetri hasn’t been getting enough balls inside the box and the trend continues this game as well

  • September 24, 2023 17:20

    Skipper Thein is getting too much for the Indian defense to handle as each minute passes by. This time his attempted switch of lanes fails as the ball travels faster than expected

  • September 24, 2023 17:18

    Myanmar steps on the gas pedal now. Two dangerous runs from Myanmar and a couple of equally good sliding tackles from Sandesh and Amarjit

  • September 24, 2023 17:16

    Myanmar’s skipper Thein takes the kick. He sends a left footed curler that bounced just in front of Dheeraj but goes out for a goal kick. Would’ve been dangerous if that was on target

  • September 24, 2023 17:15

    Amarjit elbows Naing, who was looking to take the ball away from the Indian and into the box. Free kick awarded for Myanmar but Amarjit gets only a warning

  • September 24, 2023 17:14

    Superb run from Bryce as he ventures alone on the left flank. He reaches the final third and sends a searching cross towards Kynshi inside the box but doesn’t direct it properly. Aung grabs it without trouble

  • September 24, 2023 17:13

    Chhetri is fouled near the halfway line by Kyaw as he taps the Indian captain’s head from the back. However, Kyaw is let off with a verbal warning

  • September 24, 2023 17:10

    Corner for Myanmar and it is Wai again. This time he sends a high ball inside the box. India crowds the box to clear it and that eventually leads to an Indian free kick as a Myanmar player got his hand involved

  • September 24, 2023 17:09

    India concedes a free kick in a dangerous setpiece position. Wai serves a powerful kick and Chhetri heads it away for a corner

  • September 24, 2023 17:07
    7‘ Yellow card

    Rahul KP is booked for his blatant foul on Zin Hein, who was running towards the box on the left flank

  • September 24, 2023 17:05

    Bryce’s attempted long ball is intercepted by Thein. Myanmar looks to initiate an attack with Lin on the receiving end but Amarjit stops him in his tracks

  • September 24, 2023 17:02

    Instant attack from India. Narender, from India’s box, sends a long ball towards a running Rahim Ali near the opposition’s box. But Myanmar’s defense deals with the danger

  • September 24, 2023 17:01
    Kick off!

    India gets the ball rolling and the game gets underway!

  • September 24, 2023 16:57
    Kick off soon

    The players have entered the field and it is now time for national anthems. Myanmar’s anthem plays first. India is in the usual Asian Games dark blue outfit while Myanmar is sporting an all-red jersey. Chhetri will lead the Blue Tigers while Thein will be Myanmar’s captain

  • September 24, 2023 16:00

    India: Dheeraj SIngh, Chingelsana Singh, Sandesh Jhingan, Narender, Amarjit Singh, Rahul KP, Kynshi Samuel James, Bryce Miranda, Abdul Rabeesh Anjukandan, Rahim Ali, Sunil Chhetri

    Myanmar: Zin Nyi Nyi Aung, Thet Hein Soe, Kaung Htet Paing, Kwe Khant Min, Hein Zeyar Lin, Zaw Win Thien, Kar Kyaw, Oakkar Naing, Htet Phoye Wai, Khun Kyaw Zin hein, Nay Moe Naing

  • September 24, 2023 15:38

    Seasoned Sunil Chhetri stole the spotlight for the umpteenth time on Thursday when India beat Bangladesh to stay afloat in the battle for a last-16 spot in the Asian Games in Hangzhou. Playing his third Asian Games, the second as the captain, Chhetri’s low and accurate shot from a spot kick earned India three vital points.

    On Sunday, the ageless wonder of Indian football could once again come to the fore when he leads the Blue Tigers against Myanmar in the concluding Group A tie – a match that will decide the second-placed team from Group A behind host China. India holds a slight advantage since a draw would be enough to receive the ticket for a quarter-final berth; Myanmar, on the other hand, needs to beat India to make the grade.

    India’s last meeting against Myanmar ended in a 1-0 victory for the hosts in the Tri-Nation tournament in Imphal earlier this year, with Anirudh Thapa scoring the all-important goal. But in Hangzhou, the equation could be different since both India and Myanmar are primarily under-24 sides and several players from the Imphal meet are missing from the line-ups.
