...
That's it. The referee blows the final whistle and the game is over. 

IND certainly gave it a fight but the US were just a tad bit quicker and stronger on the field.
...
90+2' - CLOSE AGAIN!

Vassiliev was played in down the right.  Dheeraj came forward and his presence results in that being a corner rather than a goal.
...
90+1' - USA substitution.


Indiana Vassilev comes on for Carleton.
...
Three minutes added on at the end of the 90.
...
89' - India played that well at the back. And finally go on the attack with Thatal down the left. 

He is shrugged off the ball but it comes on to Suresh. He tries to curl that in. But not on the mark.
...
88' - Ball in from Lindsey. Acosta has a swing at it on the volley. 

Not on target.
...
86' - Thatal again!

Gets another brilliant run down the left and he again gets the cutback but no one in the middle as has been the case so far.
...
85' - GOAL!

Cruel for IND. US go at the other end. George Acosta lifts it over the top for Carleton and the midfielder finally gets the goal he has been threatening to get as he rounds the keeper and slots it in.
...
84' - OFF THE BAR!

Thatal with the corner. Comes to Anwar Ali at the backpost. Unmarked. Takes a shot which beats the keeper but not the crossbar.

...
83' -  Sargent caught in possession. And Suresh unleashes a great shot. Durkin, however in the way and out for a corner.
...
82' - Good break from IND!

Rahim runs down the ball played from the back from Jitendra. He plays in the onrushing Thatal but the keeper and Lindsey is there to shepherd that into the keeper's gloves.
...
81' - OFFSIDE!

Carleton looks for a run behind the backline again down the right but he is just a tad overzealous.
...
80' - IND finally get the ball after it bounces off the ref. 

The home side lift it forward and look for Rahim. But Durkin is there before the striker.
...
79' - USA are just playing the ball around. No intentions of moving back or forward. IND really need to close them down now. 

This is being played at a very pedestrian level.
...
76' - USA looking comfortable on the ball and are milking the clock at the moment.
...
75' - SIDE NETTING!

Action back on and Carleton burst forward again from midfield. Took a fierce shot but off target.
...
74' - Gosling down at the moment. 
...
73' - Great work from Nongdamba and Thatal. Nongdamba with the ball in but no one really there in the middle.
...
72' - Weah with the shot! Dheeraj with the save.
...
71' - Ball in from Thatal on the FK is headed to Nongdamba. Great run into the box but he mysteriously opts not to take a shot.

Comes back and gives it to Aniket. He brushes past the US defender and pulls it back. But none there to convert that.
...
70' - Rahim on for Abhijit Sarkar.

Naorem in for Khumanthem.
...
69' - IND with some nice work down the right and the home side gets a foul as Aniket Jadhav is tripped.
...
68' - Ball lifted into the IND box but comfortable for Dheeraj. 

He tries to set off Aniket Jadhav. But that attempt is cut off.
...
India planning a double change at the moment.
...
67' -  Shot in from Carleton but that was deflected and comfortably into the hands of Dheeraj.
...
66' - IND again on the front foot. Thatal down the right to Suresh. 

But the midfielder dwells on the ball too much which allows the US to come back.
...
65' - Good delivery from Thatal but no one gets to the end of it.
...
64' - Thatal on the ball and he runs at Lindsay again. Gets a corner for his troubles.
...
62' - Shot!

Akinola played in after Carleton turned around Amarjit brilliantly.  But his attempted lob over Dheeraj is way off target.
...
61' - IND moving forward but they are a bit too slow and getting brushed off in the physical confrontations.
...
60' - Aniket Jadhav with a run but that was straight at the defender. Had Komal on his left and probably should have opted for him.
...
58' - SHOT!

Ferry from some distance but that was way over the top.
...
57' - Another good bit of play from Thatal. The crowd enjoyed that. But the following ball was not upto mark.
...
56' - NEARLY!

A good ball down the middle and Thatal had made a great run. Caught Durkin and the keeper in no man's land. But his touch is too heavy as he tried to lob the keeper.
...
55' - Thatal on the ball finally and gets a foul.
...
54' - OFFSIDE!

Weah again. He tries to break through the Indian backline but his run is waved off.
...
53' - WEAH!

Another shot on goal. A ravishing one at that. But just a tad off target.
...
52' - GOAL!


Chris Durkin with the goal. The corner fell to the defender who took a swipe. Came off Suresh and then Anwar Ali and into the goal.
...
51' - Foul by Abhijit and Akinola takes the FK but that was into the wall and gone for a corner.
...
50' - IND down the other end but lose it on the right as Khumanthem can't do much over Gloster at the other end.
...
49' - SAVED!

Dheeraj with another great save. Carleton was in on goal and then tried to slot it past the keeper but Dheeraj again with the brilliant reflexes.
...
48' - OFFSIDE!

Sargent got his shot off but Dheeraj had already stopped that.
...
47' - Good fight from Sarkar and Amarjit in the middle and IND have the ball back. 

The Blues have much more belief.
...
46' -  IND threaten from the offset. 

Aniket blocked but the home side gets it to Khumanthem on the right. A couple of stepovers and a shot but blocked awyay.
...
And IND gets us going.
...
We are poised for the second half.
...
That's the last action of the first half. A good positive end to the half for India.
...
45+1' - INDIA again!

Down the right as Aniket Jadhav and gets IND some space and then pulls it back to Khumanthem. He tries to play a 1-2 but is thwarted.


...
45' - INDIA!

No not a goal yet but the Blues are pumping it up. Jadhav with a shot that was blocked. USA go on the charge but IND come back back as Sanjeev, Thatal and Sarkar combine. 

A final cross comes in from Stalin but Aniket can't get to the end of it.

...
44' - IND clear again as USA get another ball in from the right. 

IND break and Aniket gets a throw in.
