...
India are back in action on Sunday, when they take on Tajikistan. Do join us for that one, until then, it's goodbye. 
...
That pretty much seals India's fate, then. They're going to require a miracle of epic proportions to qualify for the tournament in Thailand next year. The goal difference has taken a beating as well, with a 3-0 reverse tonight. 
...
90' PEEEEPPP! That's full-time, and Uzbekistan have run out 3-0 winners. 
...
89' Komal rattles the woodwork! He's cut in from the left flank, and that's a sensational curling effort towards goal. The Uzbek 'keeper has no hope, but a coat of paint denies Komal and India. 
...
88' That was the chance for the hat-trick! Abdixolikov is through one-on-one after an inch-perfect through ball to him. He's looked to beat Dheeraj on his left, but the Indian custodian stands tall!
...
86' INDIA SUBSTITUTION

ON - Asish Rai
OFF - NIshu Kumar
...
85' BIG CHANCE FOR UZBEKISTAN AGAIN! And they've missed, without even taking a shot. They had several opportunities to take the shot, but kept delaying the pulling of the trigger, and in the end, Golui puts it out off Kenjabaev. 
...
83' GOAL! Uzbekistan are now adding sheen to this comprehensive win!

Bobir Abdixolikov receives the ball after a scramble in the area was left uncleared by the Indian defence, and an easy finish for him past a hapless Dheeraj. 
...
81' India substitution

ON - Rahim Ali
OFF - Sahal Abdul Samad
...
81' India have a free-kick in a dangerous area, as Thapa is brought down
...
80' Substitution - Uzbekistan
OFF
Tukhtasinov Nurillo
ON
Oybek Bozorov
...
78' GOAL! Uzbekistan double their lead, after a mistake from Golui!

He's played that straight into the path of Bobir Abdixolikov, and Uzbekistan have the game wrapped up now
...
73' THERE'S PANDEMONIUM IN THE INDIAN DEFENSIVE AREA. Dheeraj has gone walkabout for no reason, but India survive, as Bora clears the cross away
...
71' Chhangte curls in a free-kick into the box, and there's confusion in the Uzbek box, but Golui has fouled the Uzbek 'keeper and the chance is gone
...
70' Nishu gives the ball away straight to Yakhshiboev, but the Uzbek striker's attempted left-footed curler is wide of the post. Dheeraj was at full stretch. 
...
68' Yet another save by Dheeraj to keep the scoreline intact.
This time, it's Tukhtasinov Nurillo, who is all by himself on the right side of the box to take a poke at the goal.
Dheeraj closes his feet and blocks it.
...
67' PUNCHED OUT!
Uzbekistan have a couple of chances from a corner but it finally took a punch from Dheeraj to get the ball away from danger. Uzbekistan are piling the pressure on India.
...
64' Substitution - Uzbekistan
OUT- Mirjakhon Mirakhmadov
IN - Jasurbek Yakhshiboev
...
62' Substitute Komal Thatal with his first contribution from the right. Poor execution as the left-footer curls flows wide of the goal.
There's some activity on the Uzbek bench.
...
59' THAPAAAAA!
He's one on one with the goalkeeper but oh wait, the linesman flags him offside. 
If only he had timed his run better, that would have been the equaliser.
...
58' SAVE!
Uzbekistan threaten again with substitute Bobir taking a poke after poke at the defender.
He finally draws himself into the box but Dheeraj ventures out to pick the ball before the shot.
...
55' Substitution - India
OFF - Rahul KP
ON - Komal Thatal
...
53' SHOT!
Gaurav Bora can't exactly put away the danger and Uzbekistan's Urunov Oston curls it towards the far post. Dheeraj makes a full stretch dive. It's anyway wide.
...
52' Substitution - Uzbekistan
OUT - Amonov Azizbek
IN - Bobir Abdixolikov
...
49' CHANCE!
Lallianzuala Chhangte shows his class on the left flank. Nishu Kumar supports him well with a pass and the winger's cross is cleared away. Chhangte powers in again and wins a corner this time.
...
48' Early domination by the hosts Uzbeks.
Dheeraj called into the action twice already. But India have a run of possession now.
...
46' SECOND HALF BEGINS
...
45+1' PEEEP THAT'S HALF-TIME!

India will be kicking themselves. They had two glorious chances, through Anirudh Thapa and Rahul KP. They spurned both. Then, after dealing rather efficiently with Uzbek attacks throughout the half, they conceded a penalty right at the end of the half, and they now trail. 

Mountain to climb in the second half. 
...
45+1' One minute of injury time at the end of the first half. 
...
45' GOAL! Kobilov scores, as he puts the ball in the corner to Dheeraj's right. The Indian 'keeper dived the right way, but had no chance, it was a perfectly struck penalty. 
...
44' PENALTY TO UZBEKISTAN! Gaurav Bora, the culprit! Uzbekistan played it around, and found Ilkhomjhon in space. Bora stuck a leg out, and caught the man and got none of the ball. Clear penalty, no complaints from the Indians either. 
...
42' Kenjabaev's in-swinging corner is perfectly delivered with pace, towards Kobilov, but the captain's header is well wide. 
...
41' Kenjabaev faces up one-on-one to Sarthak and teases him, jinking one way and then the other. But Thapa is having none of that, as he gets a foot in and concedes teh corner. 
...
40' In the brief window India had with the ball, Rahul gives it away. Then compounds his mistake by fouling Kenjabaev, and Uzbekistan have a free-kick, which they take promptly, and resume their exercise in possession. 
...
40' Uzbekistan, after a brief shaky spell in the middle, are now back to stroking the ball around with comfort. Over the past ten minutes, the Indians have only been chasing shadows. 
...
37' Nishu has given the ball away in a dangerous area, and Rustamov has pounced on it. He's taken another shot, he's taken another shot that has gone wide. 
...
37' Another shot from distance for the Uzbeks, this time from Rustamov. Again, Dheeraj isn't troubled. 
...
33' Ilkhomjhon is down, and needs treatment. Play has been stopped now. 
...
30' Once again, Thapa loses the ball in midfield. It's played over the top, looking for Kenjabaev's run, but Dheeraj is off his line and out to claim it. 
...
27' Saved by Dheeraj! Superb! It's that man Kenjabaev again, who finds himself in acres of space, as Sarthak had tucked in. Kenjabaev was found by a super through-ball from Tukhtasinov. His shot is a good one too, but Dheeraj has stuck out a big left arm, and kept it out. India survive!
...
26' There's a scramble in the India box, as none of the defenders take charge and deal with the bouncing ball. In the end, somehow, Anwar and Bora clear the danger, between them. 
...
24' The corner is played into a dangerous area, but Mirakhmadov's header is lacking in direction, and Dheeraj still doesn't have a save to make. 
...
23' Uzbekistan have another corner, after Nishu sticks to his man and blocks the cross from Azizbek. 
...
22' Kenjabaev teases Sarthak on India's right flank. But Vinit is there helping out, and plays it off the Uzbek attacker, and out, for an India throw-in. 
...
20' RAHUL RAHUL RAHUL! What have you done?! What a chance! Another ball over the top, finds the Kerala winger in space on the right wing, he's beaten the Uzbek winger, and is one-on-one with the 'keeper, but the custodian smothers his shot. Daniel was right there, Rahul should really have played the square ball, and India would've been 1-0 up. 
...
19' That's a tame effort from Kenjabaev, who gets no swerve on the free-kick. Dheeraj just watches it sail wide. 
...
18' Thapa's attempted lob to Rahul is intercepted by Ilkhomjon, and he's racing towards Dheeraj's goal. But Vinit stops him in his tracks, the referee says illegally. Uzbekistan have a free-kick that Kenjabaev will take
...
16' Gaurav looks to find Rahul running in behind, with a long ball, but that's a vital intervention from the Uzbek left-back, who gets a graze on it. Sarthak takes the long-throw, but Uzbekistan clear. 
...
15' India are finding space on the wings, especially with Chhangte, who is troubling the Uzbek right-back. The Indians now need to sort the radar on their crosses. 
...
13' Thapa, with a lovely cross-field pass, finds Rahul in space on the right. The youngster from Kerala crosses it in, but India have only Daniel in the box, and the cross is far away from where he had stationed himself.
