With Syria and Qatar on 4 and 6 points repectively, this result ends India's hopes of qualiying for the 2018 AFC U23 Championship.

But they can take a lot of heart from this performance.
...
Have to say that the Indian lads put up a great fight.
...
That is indeed the last bit of action. A single goal - albeit a contentious one separates the two sides.
...
94' - Probably IND's last chance.

Golui with a long thrown which is flicked on. Chhangte sets it up for Thapa. Who blasts it way over.
...
93' - A long clearance. And Golui gets it back up. But IND can't keep it in.
...
92' -  Manvir can't get past his man on the right.

Comes to Vinit Rai in the middle who swings one in but that is too near to the keeper.
...
4 minutes of time added on.
...
90+1' - SAVED!

IND with all sorts of pressure. The ball falls to Daniel who tries a long ranger. Saved.

Manvir Singh on the rebound but he is flagged offside.
...
90'-  Beautiful delivery and Golui nearly puts it in.

Comes to the backpost where Salam Ranjan Singh is there. 

But he can't get his body sorted out.
...
89' - Chipped in by Thapa and IND get a corner. 

ALL INDIA RIGHT NOW!
...
89' - Thapa on the ball. This can well be IND's last chance.
...
89' - IND with another freekick as Daniel is hacked down this time.
...
88' - Qatar get another yellow. This time for a bad tackle from behind.
...
87' - IND winding the box with a huge throw from Golui. Flicked on at the near post but straight at the keeper.
...
86'-  Jerry with another delightful ball down the left for Manvir Singh to chase.

IND get a throw in,
...
83' - IND get a freekick near the halfway line as Manvir Singh is fouled but the delivery from the set piece leaves a lot to be desired.
...
82' - Last change for IND as Daniel Lalhlimpuia comes on for Hitesh Sharma.
...
81' - ON TARGET!

Great delivery from Thapa and the ball is flicked on towards goal by Sarthak Golui. But the keeper gets to it.
...
80' - IND putting some real pressure. And Qatar see their first card as a challenge leaves Jerry reeling in pain.
...
79' - OFF THE POST!

Great ball from Jerry down the left to find Chhangte who plays in a delightful ball into the near post.

The ball is met with an equally brilliant run by Manvir  Singh. But his shot comes back off of the upright.

The rebound falls for Deory but he heads it over under pressure.
...
77' - Nikhil Poojary comes on for Nandhakumar.
...
76' -  Acrobatic stuff from Chhangte to knock the ball back into play with his back. But the ball seemed to have gone out.
...
76' - Ball to the farpost and just as Jerry was linign up for a shot, that is deflected away.
...
75' - IND with some neat play and Chhangte's cross is blocked away for a corner.
...
74' - WIDE!

Ball into the nearpost is flicked on and the ball finds another man white. 

He lashes at it and that goes way wide.
...
73' -  Qatar on the charge again and get another corner.
...
72' - Qatar make their first change as  Madebo comes on for Salem Hajari.
...
70' - Qatar down the left but that ball had just too much on it.

IND get a GK.
...
69' - Poor delivery from the corner. To the near post and that is cleared easily.
...
68' - Qatar running round and the game is becoming really physical here.

The referee needs to get a hold on things.

A corner for Qatar.
...
66' -  Another foul and again by IND. 

Deory again. 

IND have had only 36% possession of the ball so far.
...
65' -  IND down the other end and Thapa is flagged offside. But that was not the correct decision.

It was great opportunity for IND to open the account only to be stopped by the flag of the linesman.
...
65' - Corner is way overhit and IND look to get going early.
...
64' -Qatar come down the right and get a corner as Chhangte and then Jerry have trouble clearing that.
...
63'- Neat interception by Thapa. But Jerry just picks the wrong ball.

Goes for an audacious long crossfield ball but overhits it.
...

Thankfully for him, he didn't connect with any man. 
...
61' - And another foul committed by the Indians. This time it is Alen Deory near the midfield.
...
60'  - Nearly everyone made a nearpost run and that came to the middle.

...
60' -  IND down the other end and get a corner of their own.
...
59' - Variation in the FK and a low one is played in.

Caught the IND backline of guard but they get out quickly to block the shot.
...
58' - The Indians are livid as a couple of 50-50 decision have gone against them.

This time it is Chhangte who is deemed to have fouled.
...
57' - GOAL!

And Qatar finally have their goal.

Ball over the top and Kaith comes to gather it but comes out second best in a challenge with the forward. Who slots that in.

That could have easily gone the other way.
...
52' - Lovely footwork in the middle and the ball in played out wide right to Davinder.
He swings one in but straight to the keeper. Deory had no chance there.
...
51' - Corner for Qatar and the ball in played into a dangerous area. But the header goes wide.

48' - Straight at Kaith who gather comfortably.
...
47' - Bad foul there by Hitesh Sharma. FK in a dangerous position.
