That's it from us folks. See you next time. SK out \m/

...

Come back to read the Five talking points from the game and player ratings.

...

But, it is important that India keep playing better opposition, Indian Team needs it. Onto ISL then.

...

The manner of the win also is what matters, if this was Constantine's interview he definitely passed with flying colours.

...

This is definitely a night of celebration of Indian Football, a small step in the right direction, but potentially the biggest we ever had.

...

Full Time: This is a historic night for India. International football after 61 years and boy have they played to the occasion, they have been irresistible.

...

91' The Puerto Rico players look lost now, really really lost. Guess jet lag is a thing.

...

87' Another speedy counter by India, Seityasen Singh with a teasing cross at the end, cut off at the end by the goalkeeper.

...

86' Huge chance for India, Halicharan with a brilliant cross, but Sumit Passi couldn't convert. WHAT A MISS.

...

81' Jackichand comes off for Seityasen Singh, the stadium gives him a standing ovation.

...

79' Sunil Chhetri comes off  to a rapturous ovation. Interestingly, Daniel comes on for him.

...

75' India playing some brilliant stuff, but the final ball lets down Hali.

...

72' Lovely run by Lyngdoh, who goes past two players, and jinks back to his left-foot. His shot is deflected off the Puerto Rico defense.

...

71' Sumit Passi with a huge chance, but his first touch takes the ball away from him. His final shot, trickles into the hand of the goalkie.

...

69' India on the back-off, some lovely play by Puerto Rico at the edge of the box, the ball comes off the woodwork.

...

Jeje goes off for Sumit Passi, he seems to have hurt his hamstring. Real real bad news for Chennai.

...

65' India are on the front foot again, lovely cross field ball by PritamKotal to Halicharn, his cross a bit over-cooked.

...

62' India with another lightning counter attack, Gurpreet to Borges, who hits a brilliant cross field to Chhetri, Jeje gets it and shoots, goalie saves it quite easily.

...

60' Coner for India, Jackichand takes it short, Sunil passes it to Lyngdoh who scoops the ball into the hands of Santana.

...

And that should be it. Jackichand with a brilliant finish. Great work from Jeje on the left. Lyngdoh with the header which was heading wide. But Jackichand there at the far post to slot the ball home into the roof of the net.

...

56' GOAL, GOAL, GOAAAAAAAALLLLL. Jackichand Singh, throw in for India, Jeje crosses for Lyngdoh, whose header falls to Jackichand Singh at the back post, who slides it in. 

...

55' India have slowed down the pace of the game, and understandably so.

...

There was a bit of a bother and Ramos got in and his shot hits the post. On to Gurpreet and finally cleared.

...

52' Jackichand with a nice trick, but the ball well covered by D'Andrea.

...

50' Hali has been all over the pitch since he has come on, this could be the opportunity for Halicharan to book a permanent place in the national team.

...

48' Well defended by Borges, he has looked bright since he came on. Can't help but think that Halder going off had something to do with the yellow card he got in the first half.

...

Manolo Sanchez, who opened the scoring for Puerto Rico has really had nothing to feed of. Looks a desolate figure up front.

...

47' Interesting changes from India, Halicharan crosses of the left, the ball ricochets off Jeje to Jackichand who lets one fly, but straight to the goalkeeper.

...

And Indians are off to on the front foot again.

...

45' We are back for the second half, Puerto Rico have started the second half well.

...

So India there is a double change. Bikash Jairu and Pronay Halder are out. Halicharan and Rowlinson Borgues are in.

...

The Puerto Ricans are changing their goalkeeper. India also making a change.

...
...
India are having a rocking time on the field. Let's get this win!

India are having a rocking time on the field. Let's get this win!

...

We will be back for the second half anytime. The stadium had been absolutely insane during the game, now we breathe for a minute or two. More of the same in the second half, please.

...
...

These are the small delights we live for as Indian football. Cherish this night.
