23:19 (IST)14 JUN 2017

90+4' -Last moments of the game and Macedonia look to build from the right this time. 

They come to left and get a cross in. A shot there from inside the penalty box. But that is blocked away for a corner.

23:17 (IST)14 JUN 2017

90+3' -  India back on the attack with yet another route one action. But the forward is deemed to have fouled his Macedonian counterpart and gives away a free kick.

23:08 (IST)14 JUN 2017

81' -  Bad pass in the middle and Macedonia nearly get through the middle. But the forward can't keep his composure and shoots well over.

23:03 (IST)14 JUN 2017

Can't remember a shot on goal from either side so far. The goalkeepers are having a grand time for both sides so far.

23:02 (IST)14 JUN 2017

78' -  India down their right again. Long ball brought down well by the Indian forward.

22:56 (IST)14 JUN 2017

72' - Promising attack by the Indians from the right hand side. They get into a dangerous area but can't really threaten the goal.

22:55 (IST)14 JUN 2017

71' -  India build from the back and look for a way down the middle as a long ball is played in. A bit of head tennis there before Macedonia clear. But not to too far.

22:55 (IST)14 JUN 2017

70' - India having a spell of possession now. They look down the right and get a throw-in.

But they can't much joy there and they have to go back.

22:53 (IST)14 JUN 2017

68' - Macedonia time and again look to break down the left. But the defence on their right side has so far been robust.

22:52 (IST)14 JUN 2017

66' - A litany of fouls being committed by the Indians as Macedonia look to be on the ascendancy.

22:50 (IST)14 JUN 2017

22:49 (IST)14 JUN 2017

63' - Brilliant play from the back by the Indians as they try to spring an attack down the right. Fall from the back finds the forward but his chest down is a bit heavy and that rolls out for a goal-kick.

22:46 (IST)14 JUN 2017

61' - Macedonia on the charge again down their left. India intercepted the ball but lost it. Could have been dangerous for India but the Macedonian commit a foul.

22:44 (IST)14 JUN 2017

60' - Scramble in the box as India can't quite deal with it but they eventually clear.

22:44 (IST)14 JUN 2017

59' -  Another foul committed by India near their own penalty box. This time on the Macedonian left. And they can swing the ball in again.

57' -  Finally some endeavour from the India and they get a corner for their efforts.

22:40 (IST)14 JUN 2017

56' - India finally get the ball and they play it around now. But not much penetration in their play at all.

54'- But the danger is averted and the Indians now get a GK of their own.

22:38 (IST)14 JUN 2017

22:33 (IST)14 JUN 2017

22:32 (IST)14 JUN 2017

47' - Macedonia with the first attack of the half. Gets a low cross in. But the India defenders are there right at the spot.

22:30 (IST)14 JUN 2017

And we are off here again. The second forty-five begins. Can we get a winner today?

22:21 (IST)14 JUN 2017

And the first half comes to and end here. Not much goalmouth action at all.

Let's hope for some better football in the second 45.

22:18 (IST)14 JUN 2017

2 minutes added at the end of 45 minutes in the first half.

22:16 (IST)14 JUN 2017

Macedonia down the right. They get it to their winger who comes back to the right back who is up in support. Puts in a ball there into the middle. But that is cleared. Good defending from the Indians again.

22:13 (IST)14 JUN 2017

Free kick in a dangerous area for the Indians. But nothing doing.

22:12 (IST)14 JUN 2017

Great play from the Macedonian kids on their left wing. But the Indian youngsters are there to thwart them.

22:09 (IST)14 JUN 2017

Great interplay down the left by the Indians. But yet again, their foray into the Macedonian box goes astray.

22:08 (IST)14 JUN 2017

India have taken a strong step back into the game. Looking more comfortable in possesion.

22:06 (IST)14 JUN 2017

32' -  Macedonia looks to break down the right but the Indian left back is there to get the ball . But an immediate errant pass sees India lose possession.

29' - A great fight in the midfield and sadly India coming out second best in most of the 50-50 balls here.

22:01 (IST)14 JUN 2017
