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.

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.

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.
