That's it from this encounter between India U16 and Jordan U16. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for all the updates!
...
A dominating effort from India as they went into the first half with the lead, courtesy of a goal from skipper Vikram Kumar before he found the back of the net twice in the second half to register a hat-trick and take India to a comfortable lead. 

In the final few minutes, Becky Oram converted a half-volley into a goal as he turned in the ball to the Jordan keeper's left, triggering wild celebrations in the Indian camp as the Jordan players could not muster up the required confidence and game to pose a challenge to the exuberant Indian team. 
...
94' The final whistle has been blown! 

INDIA win 4 - 0 over JORDAN!
...
93' Last ditch attempt from Jordan to score a solitary goal goes in vain as the ball from the left wing nestles into the hands of Niraj Kumar.
...
92' Final minutes of the match as India enjoys a comfortable 4-0 lead. 
...
We are now into the dying minutes of the game. 
...
89' Corner kick for Jordan! They should have easily scored when given the chance though, the striker took all the time in the world to take an attempt at goal and it proved costly in the end. 
...
Substitution for India.

Ridge goes out and in his place comes Harpreet.

Ridge slowly trudges off the turf and is pushed away by the Jordan players who want to get on with the game. Drama!
...
84' GOOOOOOOOOAAAAALLLLLLL! This time, Beckey Oram joins the party! 

Oram runs in from the center, collects the ball in front of the goal and easily sends it to the left of the keeper, who could only watch it fly past him and into the goal. 
...
83' India now playing a high line of defense and understandably so with a three goal lead and under seven minutes to go. 
...
81' Free kick for Jordan! No luck from that kick as the ball goes high over the attempted jump from Amro Musa. 
...
80' Now an injury to goalkeeper Niraj Kumar. He's been enveloped by all the Indian players who seem to be having a mini discussion. 

With the game firmly in the bag, why not?
...
Two substitutions for India. 

Vikram Kumar goes out for Ravi Rana. 
Givson Singh goes out for Lalchhanhima Salio.
...
India now with a huge lead of 3-0. Jordan certainly need to pull their socks up if they even want to sniff any chance of making a comeback. 
...
73' GGGGOOOAAAALLLLLLLLL!! It's a hat-trick for young Vikram Singh! What a show from the Indian skipper!

A good ball from the center to the right, Vikram ran across, took his time and fired a bullet that took a deflection off the defender and cannoned into the net. 
...
70' Big concern for India as skipper Vikram Singh has gone off with an injury. 

However, he's been spotted controlling his troops from the side and looks to be getting back on field. 
...
69' Corner kick for Jordan as a result of an excellent block from Harpreet Singh! 

No luck on that occasion for Jordan as Harpreet yet again comes to the rescue with a great header to deny a goal. 
...
68' More injury concerns for Jordan. 

Fazel Lotfy on this occasion is seen writhing in pain as he clutches to his left ankle. Jordan will hope it is not a serious injury. 
...
66' YELLOW CARD shown to Manish Chaudhary for dissent. Looks like a harsh call, since Manish was pushed by a Jordan player and was only trying to make his point as shown on replay. 
...
64' Oh, no! This will be bad news for Jordan as their lead defender on the day, Obada Alzuri is down with an injury. 


...
India clearly in the driver's seat as they enjoy a 2-0 lead with just over 25 minutes to go. 
...
61' GGGGGOOOOOOOOOOAAAAALLLLL!!! Vikram Singh yet again scores the goal!! 

Excellent play from Rohit Danu on the left wing who makes a fabulous run, sends the ball in to the center of the box where Vikram Singh runs in and slots the ball into the right bottom corner as he celebrates with an infamous 'Kabaddi Thigh Slap'!
...
60' Ridge Kelvin misses the shot! The midfielder does well to play the Jordan defense and goes for goal but cannot find the back of the net. 
...
58' Powerful attempt from Rohit Danu from the right-side of goal with his right foot but the ball goes at a comfortable height to the Jordan keeper, who collects cleanly. 
...
56' A real scoring opportunity for Jordan as the ball lobs off the defender and at a correct height to Mohammed Issa who takes a shot at goal but misses as the ball whizzes past the goal. 
...
54' Frantic appeal for Handball from Jordan, NOT GIVEN. They claim that a penalty should have been awarded but the umpire is disinterested. 
...
53' Fantastic ball in from the left winger but Harpreet Singh at the center heads the ball away to deny Jordan any control.
...
51' Corner kick for Jordan! Poor ball from the corner as the ball curves away from the goal and lands outside the box. 
...
50' Another fine opportunity for Jordan to score but the striker over-runs the through ball and the ball is intercepted by the Indian defense. 
...
48' Great start for India as Niraj Kumar pulls off a great save to deny Jordan a goal! The ball was curling in towards the right corner, Niraj dived forward and punched the ball away. 
...
We are back live now for the second half!
...
The two teams held each other throughout the first half, with the Jordan defense shining through until a stroke of luck laced with some skill from skipper Vikram Kumar saw India breaking the deadlock in the dying minutes of the first half. 

The Indians will go into the break with a lot of confidence behind them while Jordan will hope to see a change in fortunes as the opportunities that have been presented to them have gone begging. 

An exciting second half awaits! Stay tuned!
...
THE FIRST HALF COMES TO AN END. 

India leads 1-0 at the break. 
...
46' Slight bit of tension for the Indians as Mohannad Smreen attempts to tackle Niraj Kumar, who does well to control the ball and pass it to the defender. 
...
Three additional minutes added to the first half. 
...
43' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOALLLLLLLL!!! Vikram Singh scores!! 

Finally, a free kick converted from India as the skipper opens the scoring with a clever touch from the center of the court as the ball skids off the surface and thuds to the right side of the net. Vikram was lucky there as the ball lobbed up to him and he had no defender in front of him, all he needed was to place the ball which he did with composure. 
...
42' Foul on Beckey Oram. He's down on the ground and is receiving some treatment. 

Should be back on his feet as he shares a smile with a fellow compatriot. 
...
40' This time, India fail to convert an opportunity. Givson Singh cleverly places the ball in the path of Ridge Kelvin, who manages to mess up an easy chance to collect the ball and score. 
...
37' Mohannad Smreen plays around with the Indian defense, wards off a stiff challenge and passes it to Amer Jamous, who yet again loses control and sends it wide from the goal. He's missed three chances now, has the Jordan No.9.
...
36' Injury to Manish Chaudhary. There was a lot of drama in the last minute as Jordan had yet another opportunity to score but failed to capitalize as the strike went way off-target and the score still remains 0-0.

He's back up though, good news for the Indians. 
...
34' Foul from Moirangthem. The youngster shoves off a challenge from Fazey Lotfy and in turn pushes him hard on the ground. 
...
30' Oh, no Jordan! An excellent ball to the center of the box, Amer Jamous had the perfect angle to score but goes in too early with the attempted kick as the ball lobs off the tip of his shoes and away from goal. 
...
A short drinks break. 
...
28' The Jordan attack is slowly gaining on the Indian defense. The men at the back will need to be vary of the challenge the Jordan attack poses to them, although they have been on top of their game. 
...
25' Foul from India! Jordan now have a free-kick at a good angle. Will they open the scoring?

Not yet. A strong kick sees the ball fly over the crossbar as yet another chance goes begging for Jordan. 
...
22' Corner kick for India! Clever tactic from the Indians to play the ground ball and then send the ball into the box, but the header is not met and the ball trickles away towards the side-lines. 
...
21' Nothing from that free-kick as the Jordan goalkeeper Osama Alkawamleh runs in on spotting the long ball and cleanly collects. 
...
Free-kick for India! A real chance to open the scoring?
...
20' Foul on Givson Singh! Thaer Khaleel this time goes in too hard on the attempted tackle, finds Givson's shins instead and he's been shown the first yellow card of the match. 
...
18' Free kick for India! It's going to be taken by Harpreet Singh in the defensive half. 

Sends in a good long ball to skipper Vikram Singh, who yet again loses the ball. Clearly, the Indian skipper is not having the best of games tonight.
