...

That's it from us, do join us for other Brics matches and ISL games. SK out.

...

That's it. India lose their first game 1-0 to Russia from a goal scored in the thrid minute.

...

90'  The corners don't seem to be working for India, neither the routines, nor the balls into the box. 

...

89' Russia have defended well in the last few minutes, but Aniket takes the ball and uses his pace to get past two players and gets a corner.

...

85' Shouts of handball as India swing in the corner, but nothing doing from the referee, the ball gets cleared for a throw in.

...

84' Good counter from Russia, ends up with a shot at goal, but Dheeraj saves easily.

...

82' A lovely take from Komal at the edge of the box, he checks in, and goes for the shot, but goes past David who dived worryingly.

...

80' India with a corner, another routine, a third man diagonal run into the box but the Russians clear the ball easily.

...

78' Russians are undoubtedly sitting deep and Indians haven't been able to breach the Russian backline as of now.

...

75' India despite being a man better, India have not been able to master anything substantial attacks.

...

74' Fifteen minutes to go for the Indians to get an equaliser.

...

70' Handball at the edge of the Russian box, huge chance for India to get a goal. A routine for India, Stalin knocks the ball into Suresh who sets up the shot, but the shot goes way over the bar.

...

68' A lovely turn Amarjit in the middle, and he set up an Indian attack, but that goes behind for goal kick.

...

65' India with some lovely football leading up to the Aman Chhetri, who tries to find the top corner, but misses narrowly.

...

59' Aman has come on and has couple of good touches on the ball. India are playing in the Russian half much more often than they did in the first half.

...

57' Amarjit with a lovely through-ball for Komal, but he can't keep it in play. Better from India, a lot-lot better.

...

55' Russia have regained their foothold in the game despite being down one man. It is essential that India come out, and press the Russians higher up.

...

53' Freekick for India in a promising position, but badly over-hit by Stalin.

...

51' Chance for India, lovely freekick from Stalin, but punched away David. 

...

49' RED CARD!!!! Terrible challenge from Nail on Aniket. A studs-up challenge, and the referee sends him off straight away.

...

48' Aniket a lovely turn near the centre circle, he gets impeded, free kick for India.

...

46' Russia start the second half on the front foot.

...

Half Time: India are behind by one goal to a superior looking Russian team. Do stay tuned for the second half.

...

45' Chance for Russia! The ball falls at the edge of the box for a right-footed volley. The ball just goes wide, with Dheeraj stranded.

...

44' Aniket coming up-front has given a direction to the Indian attacks. 

...

42' Russians have slowed down the game. Indian falling back into their lines. 

...

38' Lovely play from Russia at the edge of the center circle, the Russians seem better physically at the moment. Something needs to change for India to get back in the second half.

...

Change for India, Abhijit Sarkar going off for Aniket. It is quite surprising that Aniket didn't start the game. 

...

33' Llia with a wonderful run, but Amarjit comes across to thwar the Russian youngster.

...

29' Stalin with a good tackle, sets off Komal, he had an opportunity to cross, but he instead checks back and passes back. The ball recovered by the Russians.

...

26' A couple of opportunities for the Russians here, India are lucky that the pinball in the box eventually sat for Suresh to clear the ball.

...

25' India finally getting a foothold into the game, they seem to be getting closer to the Russian players.

...

22' A first glimpse of goal for the Indians, Boris picks the ball up on the right, after a one-two with Khumanthem, crosses into the box. Boris and Abhijit in the box, but it is way over their head.

...

20' At the moment, it seems like the Russians are keeping the Indians at an arms length. 

...

18' Abhijit is completely isolated up-front. India need to get the likes of Suresh, Boris and Komal on the ball.

...

16' Russia keep the ball, easily I must say, switched onto the left, a shot from the left, into the side netting.

...

13' Corner for Russia, poor from Kirill, the ball ricochets to the edge  of the box, Llia shoots from the edge of the box. Goes past the far post.

...

11' Komal has moved into the left, but India att the moment can't seem to get any possession of the ball.

...

9' India are definitely trying something different from what they did in the AFC U-16 Championship, starting much slower, playing much more defensive, but it doesn't seem to be suiting the men ibn blue at the moment.

...

6' Jitendra tries to set off Komal with a long ball, but easily defended by the Russians.

...

5' India have not been able to get to terms with the Russian players interchanging position, and their movement. At the moment, Russia seem to be better, physically and figuratively.

...

3' Russia score!! Jitendra mis-controls the ball in the box and Daniil slots home. Got to say they deserved it.

...

1' India start the game in a 4-4-2 compact formation. Abhijit has started the game as the number 10, with Komal up-front.

...

0' Russia kick off the game.

...

The formalities are done, and we are about to kick off for the first half. India in their traditional sky blue and Russia in brick red.

...

The player are out of the tunnels and lined up for the National anthems. 

...

It is huge opportunity for India to lay down a marker for the U-17 World Cup next year. As Nicolai Adam put it, "We need to show our competitiveness"

...

Junior gets his first chance to start a game in an official game. It will be interesting to see how he does. 

...

India have made a few changes from the squad which mostly started the games in teh AFC U-16 Championships, Aniket and Aman Chhetri are the high profile absentees.
