India U-17 1-1 Lega Pro XI, Lazio Cup, Full-time


22:22 (IST)23 MAY 2017

It's full-time here as India Under-17s play a 1-1 draw with Lega Pro XI despite being down to 10 men for the majority of the 2nd half. That's all from us here. Until next time, goodbye!

22:16 (IST)23 MAY 2017

2nd half 28' The Colts are somehow holding on to the 1-1 scoreline as Lega Pro are creating dangerous situations in attack. However, the Italian side's lack of quality means that India haven't had to face enough tricky moments in the 2nd half.

22:13 (IST)23 MAY 2017

2nd half 26' It's still 1-1 here with the Colts looking tired with every attack.

22:12 (IST)23 MAY 2017

22:10 (IST)23 MAY 2017

22:06 (IST)23 MAY 2017

2nd half 19' The Colts earn a freekick deep inside the Lega Pro half. 

22:04 (IST)23 MAY 2017

2nd half 17' The 2nd half has been a far cry from the entertaining 1st half. It's been a cagey 2nd half from both sides so far. 

22:02 (IST)23 MAY 2017

2nd half 15' At the halfway point of the 2nd half, it's still 1-1. Lega Pro have a freekick but the Italians end up fouling the Indian goalkeeper.

21:57 (IST)23 MAY 2017

21:56 (IST)23 MAY 2017

21:54 (IST)23 MAY 2017

21:37 (IST)23 MAY 2017

21:35 (IST)23 MAY 2017

28' Chance for Lega Pro as a deep cross almost hoodwinks Dheeraj in the India goal. The goalkeeper holds on to the ball ultimately.

21:26 (IST)23 MAY 2017

18' Lega Pro have looked to use the aerial route far too often today. 

21:22 (IST)23 MAY 2017

15' India have set up in a 4-1-4-1 shape that allows them to have flexibility in midfield transitions. It has worked well so far as the Colts have kept Lega Pro at an arms length. However, their passes in possession have been ordinary. 

21:20 (IST)23 MAY 2017

14' It's been scrappy in midfield sofar with neither team able to gain any supremacy.
