01:10 (IST)26 MAY 2017

Thanks for joining. Hope you enjoyed the coverage. Till next time. Goodbye.

01:09 (IST)26 MAY 2017

India win 3-0 but can't qualify for the quarter-finals of the tournament owing to goal difference.

01:08 (IST)26 MAY 2017

India sending everyone forward now.

But that's it. The referee's whistle blows to bring an end to the contest.

01:07 (IST)26 MAY 2017

India going route 1. Not much time left and India try go down the shortest path possible and nearly succeed as well.

01:05 (IST)26 MAY 2017

Inda still in with a chance but they need do something fast.

01:04 (IST)26 MAY 2017


What a great break down the right and the Indians show quality in the final third.

Two more goals need to qualify for the quarter-finals. Can India do it?

01:01 (IST)26 MAY 2017


A great attack and that leads to a scramble in the penalty box. India finally get a shot off but that is a snapshot which goes just wide.

01:00 (IST)26 MAY 2017

India attack!

Lovely touch from out centre back and he releases the man of the left but the Valmontone is back there.

00:59 (IST)26 MAY 2017

We are heading into the final minutes of the game. The games in this tournament are of course not 90 minutes long.

00:58 (IST)26 MAY 2017

And now the hosts have a free kick courtesy of another sloppy tackle.

00:57 (IST)26 MAY 2017

India throwing the kitchen sink at it right now and that means there is a lack of coordination up front.

00:55 (IST)26 MAY 2017

So if you think what is happening here. Lega Pro is 1st in the group with 5 points and their goal difference is +6. Lazio is 2nd in the group with also 5 points and their goal difference is +5. We are 3rd with 2 points and our goal difference is 0. That's why we need to win by 5 goals to make it to the quarters

00:53 (IST)26 MAY 2017

That looked like a really great though in the middle. But the ref has blown the whistle again the Indians.

A Valmontone player is down at the moment and the game is paused.

00:51 (IST)26 MAY 2017

Valmontone have come back into the game courtesy of some indifferent play in midfield from India.

00:50 (IST)26 MAY 2017

Valmontone with a free kick of the own. Around the middle of the pitch.

Swung in and easily cleared. India have really looked dangerous in the air.

00:48 (IST)26 MAY 2017

Great turn in the middle from the Indian youngster to keep the ball. Passes it and India try and strike from the left. But not with any success.

00:47 (IST)26 MAY 2017

Valmontone try to break but that well read and easily anticipated. But a sloppy pass gives the ball away. Could have been dangerous for India there but the hosts can't show any real quality in the final third.

00:45 (IST)26 MAY 2017


The FK is a direct one which is palmed away but not very far. The Indians head it back in and the second header has the keeper beat but rattles off the crossbar.

00:44 (IST)26 MAY 2017

But India win the ball, again and spray it out wide on the right. And they eke out a FK on the wing.

Remember have looked dangerous from set pieces.

00:42 (IST)26 MAY 2017

India on the attack again and this time on the left. But they can't make much from that and its a GK to Valmontone.

00:41 (IST)26 MAY 2017

And now it's time for the Indian defence to stand up. A couple of minutes of pressure from Valmontone. But the Indian backline is there to thwart them.

00:38 (IST)26 MAY 2017


Great save from the Valmontone keeper. Low cross into the box. The first time shot was on target but the keeper was at the right place at the right time. Palms it away,

00:37 (IST)26 MAY 2017

It's all one-way traffic right now. India on the ball and dictating play.

00:35 (IST)26 MAY 2017

Early chance!

India again down their favourite right-hand side of the pitch get a cross in. But the header goes all wrong.

00:34 (IST)26 MAY 2017

And we are back on the pitch for some more live action in the second half.

00:25 (IST)26 MAY 2017

And Indian have a penalty. But missed!

And that's it for the first half. Indian head into the break two goals up.

00:23 (IST)26 MAY 2017

Corner to Indian again as they go in search of a third goal here. 

00:22 (IST)26 MAY 2017

The ball is swung in from the right but India deal with it. And they get the ball back via a FK in their own half.

00:21 (IST)26 MAY 2017

Valmontone on the attack now and they finally get a corner of their own.

00:20 (IST)26 MAY 2017

Valmontone finally with some possession of the ball. But India break with fervour. But the referee seems to have blown the whistle too early.

Brings back play while India clearly had an advantage.

00:18 (IST)26 MAY 2017


Ball over the top on the right. Great ball playing in the forward. He tries to square it but that is beyond his teammate.

00:17 (IST)26 MAY 2017

But to get to the quarter-finals India still need 5 goals.

00:15 (IST)26 MAY 2017

India really on the rampage now. The Valmontone side has really not got into this.

00:13 (IST)26 MAY 2017


The ball from the corner is met yet again by an Indian head and that header bullets into the back of the net.

00:12 (IST)26 MAY 2017

The Indian youngster are really eager to double the lead and now they have another corner.

00:10 (IST)26 MAY 2017

India looking really dominant at the moment. Could have easily been a couple of goals up

00:09 (IST)26 MAY 2017


A youngster in blue gets his head to the ball from the corner. And that inches wide of the target.

00:08 (IST)26 MAY 2017

India on the attack. Moving on the right again. 

Another cross into the box but a tad overhit. But the ball is retrieved and comes back on to the right.

A little bit of trickery and India get a corner.

00:07 (IST)26 MAY 2017

And nearly two in two minutes there. But the Valmontone keeper is sharp and quickly comes out to thwart the onrushing Indian forward.

00:06 (IST)26 MAY 2017

But Indian doesn't have to wait for much long. Another great break and that is finished off. India lead!

00:05 (IST)26 MAY 2017


And Indian player goes down the in the box but play on is the call.

00:04 (IST)26 MAY 2017

India from the right again. A good find on the wings and then a ball comes in but that is headed away.

00:02 (IST)26 MAY 2017

India deep into the Valmontone half. Pressing. Trying to get the opener. But Valmontone ekes out a goal kick.

00:01 (IST)26 MAY 2017

India now down the right. They go down the flank and then square the ball back into the box but the Colts have to come out of that empty handed. 

Valmontone clear.

00:00 (IST)26 MAY 2017

Free kick for Valmontone now. Swung in dangerously. But that is well cleared.

23:59 (IST)25 MAY 2017

India try to build up down the right but a bad touch let Valmontone in. 

23:58 (IST)25 MAY 2017

A frenzied start here to the proceedings.
