Full Time : IND 0-1 SLV
It was a stubborn display by the colts but they failed to maintain the composure till the last second of the match which costed them three points as India are now the only side in the 4-nation tour to lose both the fixtures.
But it was a spirited second half which saw the Indians seizing the control of the game and flourishing with subsequent attacks. Boris has been outstanding till he was in the pitch and Floyd Pinto might haven't guessed the final outcome when he took off Boris.

Aniket, Rahim has been patchy and inconsistent upfront but have dazzled a few times. Abhijit Sarkar, Rahim Ali and Aniket might've wasted three glorious opportunity in the second half which they would rue through out the night. Prabhsukhan Gill had a great day in the office as he looked confident in front of the Slovenian forwards, leading his defense which stood out pretty decent as well.
Overall, it was a largely improved performance from the match against Croatia and Floyd Pinto can take a lot of hearts from the display of his boys. But Floyd have much of a task at his end as he desperately needs to sort out the finishing glitches which has been persistent for quite a some time now; before they meet the younger batch of the World Champions, France on 9th September. This is Spandan Paul from Sportskeeda, signing off . Have a great night ladies and gentleman!

90+3' India is stunned here at Croatia after a last second goal by Slovenia. The defense was caught out napping by a sudden aerial cross and Gill comes off the line in an one-on-one situation, but couldn't save a decisive strike from the tall Slovenian forward!
After a brilliant display of composure through out the 90 minutes, the U-19 colts lose this match in a stunning fashion!

HALF-TIME : INDIA 0-0 SLOVENIA
It's midway in an enthralling clash between India U19 and Slovenia U19 and it has lived up to it's hype for sure! Slovenia has been the more aggressive of the two teams but hasn't been able to break the Indian back line who can take a lot of positives away from this half.  Suresh and Amarjit has been seen to take much of the workload in the middle and has been at the centre of most of the duels in the middle. Indian forwards need to capitalize on the  rare chances they get and this match can go right down to the wire.
...
45' Amarjit to Boris from the middle the right winger cuts in to release Aniket at the right but Aniket couldn't deliver the resultant cross as the Slovenian defender was hot in heels onto him.
And the whistle for half time goes off!

Indian U-19 National Football team would face U-19 Slovenia in the second match of the Four-Nation Tournament.

India was invited to this stage after a stupendous display in COTIF CUP, where Floyd Pinto’s men caused a huge uproar after conquering the Argentine U20 team. But the colts succumbed to a 5-0 defeat against Croatia to open their campaign.India were simply outclassed by their opponents and were already out of the contest in the first half thanks to a flurry of goals by Croatia who were clinical in front of goal while Indian strikers profligacy made matters worse for Pinto’s squad.

On the other hand, Slovenia earned a prestigious 3-3 draw against mighty French side, launching a tremendous comeback after being down by 2 goals.

With both the sides being keen to earn their first victory in the tour this clash promises to be a cracker of a show. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for live commentary of this match!
