00:27 (IST)22 JUL 2017

Have to say that the Indian lads put up a great fight.

00:24 (IST)22 JUL 2017

That is indeed the last bit of action. A single goal - albeit a contentious one separates the two sides.

00:23 (IST)22 JUL 2017

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.

00:21 (IST)22 JUL 2017

And Qatar finally have their goal.
