That's it from us now. We'll see you again soon. SK out.

...

FT: This is it for India in the tournament. Nicolai had put the semis as target but the Indians fell well short. One thing we can give the kids is that they played their hearts out, all three games. They were unlucky to lose out on the first game, and probably deserved more.

Pros and cons, we must work on our weaknesses without forgetting our strengths.

...

90' Another penalty for Iran. Another goal.

...

85' Stalin skies the free kick, and with that probably the hope of India qualifying.

...

84' Freekick for India, can they score one now?

...

80' Iran score again. Goal! They got the penalty and score it, Ghaderi got it and his captain, Sharifi scores the winner.

...

79' Amarjit with a lovely ball, but Aman Chhetri pushed off the ball.

...

75' Anything good today for India has come through Komal, he has really grabbed the mantle in the absence of Aniket and Aman.

...

71' The Indians haven't once let their heads down, even after they went down to ten men.

...

69' Aniket with a chance to counter, but he is called back by the referee for a foul. Disappointing.

...

61' India clearing their lines, but they're not able to build up a sustainable attack.

...

58' Ghaderi with a huge chance to finish the game as a contest, but Dheeraj makes a brilliant save to deny the visitors.

...

57' If they do it from here, it will be really really herculean for India. But they are firmly on the backfoot, with Iran bossing possession.

...

56' Boris Singh is sent off. This is a huge blow for India.

...

53' Boris with a huge chance to cross into the box. But he shins his cross and it goes behind for a goal-kick.

...

50' Aniket looks hungry up-front, he is absolutely closing down everything.

...

48' India look much more vibrant in the second half, but they haven't yet made any clear cut chances though.

...

ANKIKET has come on for India. For the build up I give him, hope he turns up.

...

HT: India have been poor in the first half, it feels like they are saving their energy for the second half. They were outdone in the last two games generally because they lost momentum and energy. This is a conscious tactic by Nicolai Adam, there is no doubt he'll be a genius if this works out. But the question is, will it?

...

44' India getting just a bit better here, playing more directly, but the balls are getting gobbled up by the Iranian defence.

...

41' Iran are controlling the tempo of the game, India are playing into the hands of Iran here.

...

39' India need Aniket,it seems just the kind of game for him and his body swerves and shoulder drops.

...

35' Great move out together by India. Komal with an exquisite turn to beat multiple defenders, but nothing productive comes of it. Nice play, but no end product.

...

33' What a save by Dheeraj, he palms away the ball, and Ghaderi's shot hits the bar and goes to safety! Ufff, that was close.

...

29' India haven't managed to get the ball since Iran's goal. Need a change in style.
