90+5' - The corner comes in but that is headed away. 

...
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.
...
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.
...
90+2' -  But India can't make much of it as a foul in the penalty box lets Macedonia off the hook.
...
90+1' -  They get into Macedonian box and eke out a corner from them.

...
A Macedonian youngster down on the field again. The play thus has been halted.

84' -  India break down the right and get a cross but that is really not deep enough and the forward is at the edge of the box. That is not going to worry the Macedonians.
...
83' -  India time and again looking to play it out of the back but not with much success. The youngsters are panicking and their outballs really leave much to desire.
...
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.
...
Can't remember a shot on goal from either side so far. The goalkeepers are having a grand time for both sides so far.
...
78' -  India down their right again. Long ball brought down well by the Indian forward. 

But a bad pass their from the number 16 and all the good work goes astray. 
...
77' -  Some neat passing from the Indians there. Trying to play it down the middle but can't get much joy there.

Intercepted.

...
74' - Ball played in but that is well cleared.
...
73' - Macedonia again down the left and this time they get a free kick on the left hand side for their efforts.
...
72' - Promising attack by the Indians from the right hand side. They get into a dangerous area but can't really threaten the goal.
...
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.
...
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.
...
68' - Macedonia time and again look to break down the left. But the defence on their right side has so far been robust.
...
67' -  A good steal from the the Indians on the left. But they don't have the pace to get away from his defender and the attacks fizzles out.
...
66' - A litany of fouls being committed by the Indians as Macedonia look to be on the ascendancy.
...
64' -  India with some neat build up play but just as they look to break on the counter, they lose the ball in the middle. Poor their from the Blue Colts.
...
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.
...
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.
...
60' - Scramble in the box as India can't quite deal with it but they eventually clear.
...
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.
...
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.
...
53' - The Indians really haven't come out of their blocks as of yet in the second half. And they concede yet another corner.
...
52' - A bad foul by the Indian and the Macedonians now have a FK they can deliver from a dangerous position from their right in the Indian half.
...
50' -  Delivered into the middle and that is cleared again. Headed out and India now break down the right.
...
49' -  Macedonia on the charge again and this time they get a corner for their efforts.
...
48' - India on the counter and looking dangerous. But a foul brings the play to a halt. Cynical but probably necessary.
...
47' - Macedonia with the first attack of the half. Gets a low cross in. But the India defenders are there right at the spot.
...
And we are off here again. The second forty-five begins. Can we get a winner today?
...
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.
...
2 minutes added at the end of 45 minutes in the first half.
...
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.
...
Free kick in a dangerous area for the Indians. But nothing doing.
...
Great play from the Macedonian kids on their left wing. But the Indian youngsters are there to thwart them.
...
Great interplay down the left by the Indians. But yet again, their foray into the Macedonian box goes astray.
...
India have taken a strong step back into the game. Looking more comfortable in possesion.
...
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.
...
27' -  A great foray into the Indian penalty box from the Macedonian side. But the Indian side is there in numbers and smother any danger.
...
