FT: India were extremely comfortable most of the game. They looked every bit the team Constantine would want them to be in the first twenty minutes of the game, and to be fair, India do have a lot of players with pace in the team. Sandesh was once again, a rock at the back. All in all, a good pre-season game. 

Bhutan fans, take a bow. The first half had an insane atmosphere, the best  have felt in a football ground.

...

92' The Indian wall does its job and the ball goes behind for a corner. That too ultimately comes down to nothing.

...

91' Bhutan with one last chance, freekick in a very nice area.

...

88' Jeje's shot, it hits the under-side of the cross bar and goes out. Close.

...

86' Terrible ball into the box, over-hit and goes behind for a goal-kick. The set-piece delivery has been really poor from the Bhutan players.

...

85' Free-kick in a decent position for Bhutan, can they get a consolation?

...

83' That was real risky head back to the goalkeeper, but Hari, the Bhutan stopper gathers the ball nonchalantly.

...

81' Arriving early to Bhutan has really benefited the Indian side, they look good, especially for pre-season.

...

77' Brilliant long ranger from Chencho, has Subrata Paul scrambling to his right, but for Bhutan fans in the stadium, the ball goes agonisingly wide.

...

76' India are playing on the counter here, Jeje runs down a ball behind the Bhutan defence and his left footed volley is horrible shinned. Goes out for a goal-kick.

...

74' Issac has looked really bright since he has come on, driving runs and step overs, but his cross is cleared away easily.

...

72' A decent shot by Issac, palmed away by the Goalkeeper.

...

67' Jeje is always there, ready to pounce on an error, like he did just now. But, Passi can't take advantage of the ball into the box.

...

66' To be honest, Bhutan are looking better with ten men than they ever did with eleven.

...

A late update, Vinit Rai has come in for Borges.

...

63' The Indians have definitely taken the foot off the gas, Constantine needs to make a change or two to freshen things up.

...

60' Good play in the middle of the park by Bhutan, Borges breaks up the play with a foul, and the resulting free-kick is disappointingly over-hit.

...

57' Chencho has been the only one causing an ounce of problem to the Indian back-line, but Sandesh has been a rock at the back and has cleared everything which has come their way.

...

54' Bhutan down to 10 men, Gurung is shown a red card.

...

52' India have just dropped the pace of their general build-up play in the second half, as a result the second half has been a bit disjointed.

...

49' Free-kick for India  at a very promising area of the pitch, but a training ground routine sees the ball cleared away.

...
...

47' We are back for the second half with India on the counter, Borges plays a excellent ball over the Bhutan back-line, Issac though, can't keep it in.

...

HT: India have been the dominant of the first two sides, scoring three goals in the first 22 mins of the game. Since then, Bhutan have relatively grown into the game and have created a couple of chances, but I believe Constantine will be happy with his team's performance and the general build-up play.

...

46' Huge chance for Bhutan, the ball is send out to Biswa on the left who puts in a mean cross, Chencha in the middle eludes the Indian defence but then misjudges the flight of the ball.

...

45' Sandesh with some excellent defensive work again, as the ball broke into midfield he puts in a diving header to clear the ball.

...

43' I know I am repeating this again and again, but the atmosphere in the stadium is the best I have ever felt for a Indian National Team game.

...

42' Some neat build-up play from Bhutan. The ball gets passed into midfield and a long ranger goes narrowly wide of Subrata Paul's far post.

...

38' India with some brilliant build-up play again. The ball is moved from Halder to Borges to Hali, who's cross narrowly goes past the head of Passi.

...

36' Sloppy from India, leading to first real chance for Bhutan, but thankfully Paul was at the right place at the right time to bail the Indian defence.

...

34' Chance for India, but Passi miscues his shot, Jackichand tries his best to keep the ball in play but the ball is taken away by Chimi.

...

32' Looks like India are having no problems at all getting used to the artificial turf, or the high altitude.

...

30' Bhutan have looked relatively better since the third goal went in, but haven' been able to create much though.

...

26' The ball into the Indian box from the left wing was easily defended by Sandesh. He has been really good, sniffing out any potential danger.

...

25' India looking increasingly dangerous even after the goal, keeping possession well and also committing men forward.

...

20' WHAT A GOAL! Brilliant from India, absolutely brilliant. Neat build up play, and the ball gets recycled to the right wing for a third person run by Jeje, who squares it into the middle for Sumit Passi, who steps over the ball for Halicharan to come in with a brilliant finish. India looking really really good.

...

18' GOAL!!! Jeje with a smart finish after some neat hold up play in the box by Passi.

...

14' Borges has also looked bright in the first few minutes, his cross-field pass just out of reach for Jackichand.

...

12' Cardozo looks full of energy in his first game, making an angle for Paul so that he can receive the ball with ease.

...

11' India are keeping possession well, they have been comfortable so far after the scare in the first minute.
