That goal also brings an end to the first half. India were clearly the more dominant side, but missed a lot of chances. Myanmar slowly seemed to be catching up in the last ten minutes or so, but a goal against the run of play from Anirudh Thapa means that India head into the break with an one-goal advantage.
IND 1-0 MYN

Anirudh Thapa returns to the national side and he returns in some style. He has been threatening throughout the evening, and finally has his reward. A good cross by Rahul Bheke from the right flank, leads to a defensive mishap for Myanmar.
The ball lands on Thapa's feet, who duly slots it in. INDIA OPEN THE SCORING!

A harsh challenge from Bheke hands a freekick to Myanmar from a dangerous position. The free-kick is taken well and Sunil Chhetri leaps from the wall and heads it well - he does it too well for his own good as the shot is right on target of India's own goal.
Amrinder Singh has to leap high to push it away. That could have well been the first goal of the night. BRILLIANT FROM THE INDIAN KEEPER!

A corner for Myanmar and they take it short. India manage to steal the ball and create a counter, thanks to Bipin. It is a stunning run down on the left wing from the Blue Tigers, but the Myanmar defence somehow clear it.
Another opportunity goes begging for India.
