India 1-1 St Kitts and Nevis, Full-time


21:58 (IST)24 AUG 2017

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!

21:56 (IST)24 AUG 2017

FULL TIME. India 1-1 St Kitts and Nevis.

21:54 (IST)24 AUG 2017

No. Robin's flick at near post is cleared away.

21:54 (IST)24 AUG 2017

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.

21:51 (IST)24 AUG 2017

88' Manvir Singh replaces Jeje.

21:47 (IST)24 AUG 2017

21:39 (IST)24 AUG 2017

21:36 (IST)24 AUG 2017

77' SHOT!

After some good work,  Rogers finds space to shoot from distance. The effort is too weak to trouble Subrata.

21:35 (IST)24 AUG 2017

21:34 (IST)24 AUG 2017
