66' India never looked like a team which could score a single goal here. The Blue Tigers have failed to even string three straight passes, retain possession and have left too many gaps at the back for the UAE midfield to exploit and find the strikers who have been ever so lethal tonight.

21:13 (IST)29 MAR 2021
