19:39 (IST)6 DEC 2017

19:33 (IST)6 DEC 2017

1 - Chance! What a massive chance that was for India. Bhupinder sent in the cross from the left flank, as the ball misses everyone, as Sunil waits at the far post. All he needed to do there was to tap it into an empty net from just two yards out. However, the somehow, he missed it from there.
