    Full time: Nepal 1-1 India

    That's that then. India manage to snatch a draw after going down one goal, Nepal were attacking in the closing stages, egged on by the home crowd but the Blue Tigers managed to hold on.

    82' India get a brilliant chance following a Thapa freekick as the ball is sent across the face of the goal but Manvir can't quite capitalise.

    70' India have switched things around and the changes seem to be working in their favour, but they need to push forward and get that winner.

    60' INDIA LEVEL!

    GOAAAAL. Anirudh Thapa forces the ball into the net to draw level for India. The Blue Tigers had been mounting the pressure for a while and it was Chhetri who took a left-footed shot from outside the box which the Nepali keeper could not parry away to safety. Thapa rushes in and scores off the rebound.

    50' Nepal 1-0 India

    The second half has started and it's almost chaotic outside the Nepal box as the Nepali goalkeeper is forced outside the penalty box and he handles it giving away a freekick in a dangerous position. However, Thapa's delivery is weak.

    HT: Nepal 1-0 India

    It's Half Time and Nepal still lead 1-0. India have been quite poor, they have been too patient and safe and not tried to REALLY attack, there's no sense of urgency to get the goal, Sunil Chhetri has been nullified by Nepal's defenders and the midfield has been quite poor. On top of that, Sana's horrid back pass has gifted Nepal the goal. Work to do in the second half for the Blue Tigers.

    40' Nepal 1-0 India

    It was an absolute disaster of a back pass by Sana, lacked the pace to reach GSS and Anjan made no mistakes. Extremely poor from India, now they have a game to chase.

  • 2 Sep 2021 12:23 PM GMT


    Nepal break the deadlock as a backpass by Sana to the keeper Gurpreet is intercepted by Anjan Bista who rounds up GSS and slots it home.

    Nepal with a chance!

    26' Nepal string together a good move, with a couple of nice passes in midfield. The right winger dribbles a little, sends Akash Mishra to the floor but his cross is poor and Gurpreet can collect with ease.
