India failed to take their chances in the second half. Robin Singh, in particular, was had a couple of glaring opportunities. St Kitts played some good football midway through the second half and got a deserved equaliser. 

Thus, India's nine-match winning streak comes to an end. That's all from us here. Good bye and good night!
...
FULL TIME. India 1-1 St Kitts and Nevis.
...
90+5' One last chance for India. Corner as Robin Singh's cross is deflected out. Can they make it count?

No. Robin's flick at near post is cleared away.
...
90+4' Brilliant play from Thapa, Manvir and Narzary. Narzary skips past a defender and tries to send in a cross but it is blocked for a corner. The corner comes to nothing.
...
90+3' Another chance but Rafique can't keep his header on target.
...
90+1' Chance for India as they break away yet again. Robin Singh shoots on the turn. The shot is deflected goalwards, the goalkeeper can't adjust in time and the ball hits the cross bar before he can collect. 
...
88' Manvir Singh replaces Jeje.
...
88' A brawl breaks out as Rafique gets into an argument with two of the St Kitts' players. The referee has it in control.
...
85' Nikhil sprints down the right flank to earn a corner. The corner is poor and comes to nothing.
...
83' Chance for St Kitts as they break on counter. Rogers and Carlos find themselves in a 2-0n-1 position but Rogers miscues the final pass.
...
80' Change for India as the young Anirudh Thapa comes on for Rowlin Borges. Thapa makes his debut for the national team.
...
79' A good spell of possession for India as they build by playing short passes. Jeje finally lays off the ball for Rafique to shoot. The shot is wide. Jjeje was flagged off-side already, anyway.
...
77' SHOT!

After some good work,  Rogers finds space to shoot from distance. The effort is too weak to trouble Subrata.
...
76' Suddenly the pressure is on India. The body language has changed after the equaliser and the St Kitts players are attacking with real intent.
...
75' A crunching tackle from Sandesh Jhingan. St Kitts had a good chance there but the Indian captain was having none of it.
...
72' GOAL! 1-1!

The corner is headed in by Hanley as Gvaune Amory gets to it just in time and finds the equaliser. Heartbreak for India.  Can they preserve and get a winner here?
...
70' Chance for St Kitts as a deep free kick is headed goalwards.  Subrata Paul jumps high and fists it over. Corner.
...
66' Opportunity for St Kitts but comes to nothing.

Rogers Kimaree does a few step-overs before setting up a teammate. But the shot is way over.
...
63' Corner for St Kitts as Narayan Das prevents a cross from coming in. The corner is overhit and comes to nothing. Disappointing play from the visitors. 
...
60' Double change for India. Mohammed Rafique and Nikhil come in for Jacki and Eugeneson.
...
56' SHOT!

Eugeneson shoots but it goes into the second tier
...
54' Narayan Das sends in a good ball from the left and Robin Singh jumps the highest to meet up. Can't get the connection right, though.
...
50' BIG CHANCE FOR INDIA!

The Blue Tigers counter as a long ball is brought down by Robin Sing for Jeje to chase. Jeje sets up Robin with a good pass, one on one with the 'keeper but a weak effort from the forward in the end. Should have been 2-0.
...
49' SHOT!

Pritam Kotal gets in after a brilliant one-two with Jeje. However, he shoots wide and over.
...
47' Good chance for India as Jacki finds acres of space on the right flank and sends in a deep cross. Narzary is there but before Robin can get to the end of the lay off the ball is cleared.
