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

This was Souvik Roy Chowdhury. Till next time.

Goodbye.
...
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.
...
94' - Kaith rushes as IND get a FK.

Deory flicks it on but SGP clear. 

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

And they are sure to take some more seconds off the clock.
...
92' - Desperate times for IND. Kaith's punt finds Manvir but he can't keep it in.
...
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.
...
90' - Manvir Singh wins the header again. And Thapa gets to it but his touch betrays him. And the chance goes astray.
...
90' - Scrambled play all around the work.  IND with a freekick.
...
89' - Poojary too eager and gives away a free kick. 
...
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.
...
87' - IND failing to mount any kind of challenge.
...
86' - SGP taking their time to get on with the proceedings here and understandably so.
...
85' -  SGP desperate for a win. These boys have lost 8 of their last 10 games.
...
84' - Pasha tries time and again to get from the left.

But he can't get anywhere.
...
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.
...
82' - IND get two successive throws.
...
82' - Kaith tries to launch an attack but that is way over Hitesh Sharma.
...
81' - SGP freekick from their right.

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

But Kaith is there.
...
80' - Suzliman hacked down and Lalruathara is shown the yellow. 
...
79' - AUDACIOUS!

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

Launches it forward and IND finally get a throw in the SGP half.
...
77' - Thapa floats it in this time. Caught easily.
...
77' -  Thapa with the corner at the near post and IND get another corner.
...
76' - India come back and finds Manvir Singh. 

Shot on target. Pushed away for a corner.
...
76' - Floated in and the keeper punches out.
...
75' - Long throw. And that falls to Germanpreet. Takes a shot but that is blocked and out for a corner.
...
74' -  IND under pressure at the back. But play there way out. 

Germanpreet tries to get Daniel through on goal. But get a corner.
...
73' - SGP with a free-kick. A shot on goal from 35 yards out. But not on target.
...
69' -  IND player down injured and the game comes to a halt.

Not sure who that is right now.
...
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.
...
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.
...
66' - India down the right. But Jerry gives away a free kick.
...
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.
...
64' -  To the far post and that is cleared.

IND nearly break on the counter. But SGP keep their shape.
...
63' - Singapore down the right. The winger twists and turns and bursts forward. 

But Jerry is there with his outstretched leg.  Corner.
...
62' -  Short corner from India. 

But the final cross is way overhit.
...
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.
...
61' - Great distribution from Germanpreet who finds a rampaging Davinder on the right.

But his cross is poor.
...
60' - But the hosts can't make much of that.
...
59' - YELLOW CARD!

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

But subsequently give one away.
...
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.
...
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.
...
53' -  Singapore down the right but Jerry is there. And thwarts their advance.


...
52' Goal for Singapore as Ikshan Fandi scores from the penalty spot. 
...
51' Penalty to Singapore!
...
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. 
...
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.
