Updated: 28 March 2017 19:06 IST - Published: 28 March 2017 12:33 IST
...
India next play Kyrgyzstan on 13th June, 2017.
...
But that's all history right now. India will only see the three points. And let the good times roll.
...
Myanmar really did threaten time and again with Ko Ko and Aung Thu. But when it came to precision at the final they lacked the killer's touch.
...
Constantine might be happy with three points but not with the way the team played in the game. Long balls, unnecessary take on and a centre-midfield that was AWOL. Not things you would want to see at the beginning of the campaign.
...
Myanmar should be lauded for the effort. They might be 40 places behind India in the FIFA rankings, but seeing this game, you wouldn't be at fault if you had thought that it was the other way round.
...
What a way to end proceedings. At the end of the day, three points is all that matters and they have that at the end of their first game.
...


That was a sumptuous counter attack that any team in the world would be proud of. It was Sunil Chhetri who won the ball back for India and kept on running to the other end. His run was aptly rewarded by that pull back by Udanta. And when it mattered most, Chhetri touch didn't let him down.


...
Udanta Singh was brilliant since coming on. And just showed what pace can do. 


...
India played second fiddle for most of the game. But when it mattered, the Blue Tigers pulled it off. WHAT A WIN!
...
India's sixth win on the trot. The first time they have done so in international football.
...
PEEP PEEP PEEP! And that's it. INDIA WIN!
...
India, remember, have not at Myanmar against the hosts for 64 years.
...
That was Sunil Chhetri's 53rd goal of his international career.
...
90+1' - Myanmar trying to get back into the game. But India still astute at the back.
...
90' - GOAL!!!!  What a counter and India scores!!

Udanta flies down the right. After being set off by a beautiful ball from Jeje. Udanta pulls it in and Sunil Chhetri tucks it in.
...
89' -  Another ball from the left for Myanmar. A good one at that. Finds an unmarked Ko Ko in the middle. But that's an atrocious header from the forward.
...
88' -  Threatening from Myanmar from their left. A shot.  But Sandesh Jhingan is quick to close him down.
...
87' -  Holicharan Narzary comes in for a deflated Jackichand Singh. Some real pace down the wings now.
...
87' -  Udanta with an opportunity. Good strike from the right. But straight to the goalkeeper.
...
86' -  Ko Ko with another ball from the right. But he looks jaded. Weak ball in and is collected by Gurpeet.
...
85' -  Udanta fouled again. He has certainly provided a spark since he has come in.
...
84' -  Udanta looks to break down the right. But is double teamed.
...
83' -  Another free kick for India as Lyngdoh is hacked down. Dangerous ball. Shouts of handball but cleared away.
...
82'- Freekick is cleared. But India still have the ball and will now use a long throw-in.
...
81' - India with a free kick. Is there a twist in the the tale? We will soon find out.
...
80' - A shot comes in immediately from Myanmar. But again off target.
...
79' - Rowlin Borges comes off. In comes Dhanpal Ganesh.
...
76' -  India try to build up an attack. But Jeje's ball is too much behind an onrushing Udanta. And the ball gets away.
...
India preparing for a second change.
...
75' - India with a corner now. 

Short corner. But doesn't quite work out. Myanmar breaks but a heavy touch lets them down.
...
72' - Sandesh Jhingan with a dangerous bit of play. Shoulders his man out of the way.
...
71' - NO PENALTY! And honestly don't know why not.

Udanta Singh played in delightfully by Chhetri. Is hacked down. But referee waives away the protest. That's a ridiculous decision.
...
Jeje Lalpekhlua up top on his own.
...
Jackichand Singh now seems to have moved to the left. Udanta on the right. Chhetri has tucked into a more central position.
...
70' -  Another needless and reckless tackle from Rowlin Borges. Neither of the central midfielders would like to remember this one. 

Floated FK by Ko Ko. But cleared away.
...
68' -  YELLOW! Sunil Chhetri gives away two hand balls and then throws the ball away.
...
67' -  Sunil Chhetri, who is still playing down the left. Finds Narayan Das on the overlap. Good ball but a lack of bodies in the box there.
...
66' - YELLOW! Eugeneson continues his lacklustre performance with a mistimed tackle. Ensuing FK is easily gathered by Gurpreet.
...
65' - First change for India. Robin Singh comes off for Udanta Singh. 
...
65' -  And finally a tackle from Ko Ko. On to the linesman. And both are down.
...
64' -  Another diabolical ball from the left from Narayan Das. Surprising that Constantine sitting pat.
...
63' - Another free kick for Myanmar. This time from the left wing. Min Tun with the header. But another failed attempt.
...
The Indian are failing to do the easy things or rather spot the easy passes. Too many long balls, to many take-ons and that has led to no rhythm in their build-up play.
...
62' - Yan Naiang Oo with the shot. Through the legs of Narayan Das and the tame shot is easily gathered by Gurpreet.
...
58' - India living a charmed life. Myanmar building a head of steam. Looks like it's just a matter of when and not if they will score.
...
How much time till Constantine takes a step.
...
56' -  Gurpreet comes out. But could only palm it. The ball finally falls to the Myanmar skipper Yan Aung Kyaw. A shot from around 30 yards which is just a couple of feet over the bar.
...
Another corner for the home side.
...
No pressure on the ball from India and no wonder they are getting totally outplayed here.
...
54' -  Myanmar are building the pressure. Attack after attack now. But there is no passing Gurpreet.
