  • September 21, 2023 15:24

    Timely challenge from Lalchungnunga to stop Rafiqul from making a dangerous run inside the box. That looked offside but the linesman did not raise the flag, surprising the Indian defense

    84’ Yellow card

    Jony is booked for arguing with the referee

  • September 21, 2023 15:15

    Jhingan concedes a corner. Rabiul serves it inside the box and it is cleared by Jhingan.

  • September 21, 2023 14:53

    An hour into the game and it stays goalless. India badly needs a breakthrough as this is a do-or-die fixture. A loss here will bring curtains to the Blue Tigers’ Asian Games campaign

    CHANCE!! Rahul KP misses the trajectory of the cross that came inside the box as he heads it the other way. Anjukandan collects on the rebound and tries goes for glory but fails to keep it on target. Rahul KP should’ve done better!

    Commotion inside the box! Three attempts at goal from India is fended off! First it was Chhetri, then it was Rahul KP close quarters and the final one by Anjukandan. Superb show from Marma!

    Another setpiece situation for India as Rahmat gets the timing wrong on a challenge on Bryce. Free kick for India. Looks like Rohit will take it. He sends it a curler towards Jhingan but it goes directly to Marma. Not a bad attempt at all

  • September 21, 2023 14:14

    Corner for India as Rahmat deflects Rohit’s cross attempt. Bryce himself will take it. Goes long towards Chinglensana, whose headed effort is cleared away. Jhingan and a few others ask for a handball but the referee thinks otherwise

    Even just a month before the Asian Games, when the All India Football Federation (AIFF) announced a strong squad for the tournament, it was hard to envisage the Indian men’s team’s chances of going all the way here in Hangzhou.

    But with a ‘third or fourth choice’ team’ in his own words, head coach Igor Stimac has his task cut out to get the team out of the group stages and into the knockouts.

    In the opening 1-5 defeat to China, Stimac had only 17 players – five players were yet to fly out to Hangzhou – to choose from, which included three goalkeepers.

    And, among the five, only Narender Gahlot, Gurkirat Singh and Aniket Jadhav are expected to join the group in the early hours of the matchday.

    Despite the depleted squad, India will be expected to overcome Bangladesh and Myanmar in its next two group outings, starting with a match against the former at the Xiaoshan Sports Centre stadium on Thursday.

    Bangladesh suffered a 0-1 loss to Myanmar on the opening day.

    Stimac will take positives from several new faces including Gurmeet Singh, Lalchungnunga, Ayush Dev Chhetri, Sumit Rathi, Bryce Miranda and Abdul Anjukandan experiencing international football on a big stage. While Gurmeet had five goals against his name, he could come away with some credit with the number of saves he made in the game, his debut for team India.

    Winger Rahul KP scored a goal to pull India level at half-time for a team which was put together in the eleventh hour.
