43' - Samuel Shadap is on now for Rino Anto who goes out limping to receive treatment for his pain.

...
15' - Siam Hanghal trips Anirudh Thapa with a late tackle and goes into the referee's book.
...
7' - Raphael Augusto sends a cross towards the far post from the left side as he sees the run of Francisco Fernandes. The pass, however, was slightly overcooked and went out of play
