India U-23s 0-1 Singapore U-23s, Full Time


18:55 (IST)12 JUL 2017

Thanks for joining us. Hope you liked our coverage. It has been a pleasure again.

This was Souvik Roy Chowdhury. Till next time.


18:53 (IST)12 JUL 2017

And that's it. The final whistle goes and IND lose this one by the same scoreline they had won four days back.

1-0 win to Singapore and on the balance of play, they deserve it as well.

18:52 (IST)12 JUL 2017

94' - Kaith rushes as IND get a FK.

Deory flicks it on but SGP clear. 

18:51 (IST)12 JUL 2017

93' - Poor kick from Kaith and that leads to a SGP freekick.

And they are sure to take some more seconds off the clock.

18:51 (IST)12 JUL 2017

92' - Desperate times for IND. Kaith's punt finds Manvir but he can't keep it in.

18:50 (IST)12 JUL 2017

91' - Manvir again. On the ball and slips it between the lines for Nikhil Poojary. But just as he is about to strike the ball, a great challenge comes in.

18:49 (IST)12 JUL 2017

90' - Manvir Singh wins the header again. And Thapa gets to it but his touch betrays him. And the chance goes astray.

18:48 (IST)12 JUL 2017

90' - Scrambled play all around the work.  IND with a freekick.

18:47 (IST)12 JUL 2017

89' - Poojary too eager and gives away a free kick. 

18:47 (IST)12 JUL 2017

88' -  But just as I speak, Manvir Singh got in. Well chested down but he has no support. Finally plays in Nihkil Poojary but he is flagged offside.

That call looked suspicious.

18:46 (IST)12 JUL 2017

87' - IND failing to mount any kind of challenge.

18:44 (IST)12 JUL 2017

86' - SGP taking their time to get on with the proceedings here and understandably so.

18:43 (IST)12 JUL 2017

85' -  SGP desperate for a win. These boys have lost 8 of their last 10 games.

18:43 (IST)12 JUL 2017

84' - Pasha tries time and again to get from the left.

But he can't get anywhere.

18:42 (IST)12 JUL 2017

83' -  What a miss. Jerry swung that in for Alen Deory. The goal at his mercy and only six yards away. 

But he heads it wide.

18:41 (IST)12 JUL 2017

82' - IND get two successive throws.

18:40 (IST)12 JUL 2017

82' - Kaith tries to launch an attack but that is way over Hitesh Sharma.

18:40 (IST)12 JUL 2017

81' - SGP freekick from their right.

Good one at the near post. And that is flicked on towards goal.

But Kaith is there.

18:39 (IST)12 JUL 2017

80' - Suzliman hacked down and Lalruathara is shown the yellow. 

18:38 (IST)12 JUL 2017


Hameer Shahin with a speculative effort from the centre of the park. Kaith was off his line and he wasn't getting to that. But fortunately for him that is not on target. 

18:37 (IST)12 JUL 2017

78' - Long ball but Kaith is there to the ball first.

Launches it forward and IND finally get a throw in the SGP half.

18:36 (IST)12 JUL 2017

77' - Thapa floats it in this time. Caught easily.

18:35 (IST)12 JUL 2017

77' -  Thapa with the corner at the near post and IND get another corner.

18:35 (IST)12 JUL 2017

76' - India come back and finds Manvir Singh. 

Shot on target. Pushed away for a corner.

18:34 (IST)12 JUL 2017

76' - Floated in and the keeper punches out.

18:34 (IST)12 JUL 2017

75' - Long throw. And that falls to Germanpreet. Takes a shot but that is blocked and out for a corner.

18:33 (IST)12 JUL 2017

74' -  IND under pressure at the back. But play there way out. 

Germanpreet tries to get Daniel through on goal. But get a corner.

18:32 (IST)12 JUL 2017

73' - SGP with a free-kick. A shot on goal from 35 yards out. But not on target.

18:30 (IST)12 JUL 2017

69' -  IND player down injured and the game comes to a halt.

Not sure who that is right now.

18:28 (IST)12 JUL 2017

68' - IND with a free-kick in a dangerous area. 

But poor execution. A fake lay off. But the SGP defence was way off line. How the referee allowed that is beyond my comprehension.

18:26 (IST)12 JUL 2017

67'- Singapore on top and another good move. Ball again falls to Hanafi Akbar. But can't get any real power behind that. Easy for Kaith who collects it.

18:25 (IST)12 JUL 2017

66' - India down the right. But Jerry gives away a free kick.

18:24 (IST)12 JUL 2017

65' -  India are sixes and sevens at the back. No clear clearance and the ball falls for Hanafi Akbar. Didn't quite anticipate that puts it wide.

18:23 (IST)12 JUL 2017

64' -  To the far post and that is cleared.

IND nearly break on the counter. But SGP keep their shape.

18:22 (IST)12 JUL 2017

63' - Singapore down the right. The winger twists and turns and bursts forward. 

But Jerry is there with his outstretched leg.  Corner.

18:21 (IST)12 JUL 2017

62' -  Short corner from India. 

But the final cross is way overhit.

18:21 (IST)12 JUL 2017

62' - Hitesh Sharma breaks down the left. But his cross is put out for a corner. That was a low one and not particularly impressive.

18:20 (IST)12 JUL 2017

61' - Great distribution from Germanpreet who finds a rampaging Davinder on the right.

But his cross is poor.

18:19 (IST)12 JUL 2017

60' - But the hosts can't make much of that.

18:19 (IST)12 JUL 2017


Davinder Singh get the card. Poor clearance from Salam Ranjan Singh. And that led to an ugly situation. Davinder had to pull his man from behind.

18:17 (IST)12 JUL 2017

58' - Variation there. And it comes to a SGP player at the corner. But that is closed down. But that pops out to another man in Red. 

On the volley but a whisker away from the goal.

18:15 (IST)12 JUL 2017

57' -  Good work from Shaimi on the left and he gets a free kick from Jerry's incessant pressure which is deemed too much.

18:14 (IST)12 JUL 2017

56' - Daniel wins a free kick in midfield.

But subsequently give one away.

18:13 (IST)12 JUL 2017

55' -  Chhangte from the left. Puts in a teasing ball in after spotting the run of Thapa. But that is too close to the keeper. 

Nothing there.

18:13 (IST)12 JUL 2017

54' -  Singapore on the front foot again. Pasha tries to get in from the left. But there are just too many Indian on the way.

18:11 (IST)12 JUL 2017

53' -  Singapore down the right but Jerry is there. And thwarts their advance.

18:10 (IST)12 JUL 2017

52' Goal for Singapore as Ikshan Fandi scores from the penalty spot. 

18:09 (IST)12 JUL 2017

51' Penalty to Singapore!

18:08 (IST)12 JUL 2017

49' Poojary's shot is a tame one but goes just past the Singapore 'keeper's left hand post. Like in the first half, India are slowly growing after a slow start to the second half. 

18:06 (IST)12 JUL 2017

47' Singapore try to take the initiative and go on the attack but they are stopped by some good backwards pressing by the Indian attackers.
