IND will sit back and wonder as to what might have been. They had to be more offensive, instead they were reeling under constant attacks from BEL.

...

51' - Sreejesh is substituted now. Raghunath is playing sweeper keeper. That is how urgent it is for IND to find a breakthrough here!

...

IND don't have a keeper in goal now. They'll have to attack all out here to score.

...

IND remove Sreejesh, much to his displeasure. IND get another player on. With 10 min to go, its a real bold move from IND coach here.
