19:31 (IST)11 FEB 2019

28' CLOSE!
And India respond to the Nepal threat. No they don't have a goal yet but that's some good display of football.
It's Dalima Chhibber this time, who fires a long-ranger from about 40 yards out. The ball dips but misses the bar by inches!

19:26 (IST)11 FEB 2019

Sabitra Bhandari is played through and she beats Sweety Devi to surge into the box.
