The referee blows the whistler and India have earned a creditable draw against higher-ranked Oman. An improved second-half display that saw Manvir Singh score the equaliser from a brilliant Bipin Singh cross was enough to earn Igor Stimac’s men the draw. There is definite scope for improvement for India but they’ll take this result even though they rode their luck at times.

90’ India 1-1 Oman

Two minutes of stoppage time added

CHANCE for Oman! A clever reverse pass takes out the entire Indian defence but the Oman player, one-on-one with the goalkeeper albeit from a tight angle fires wide. India given an early let-off in the second half.

HT: India 0-1 Oman

A late own goal in the first half separates the two teams at the break. Oman have bossed the game so far reducing India to playing inside their own half and take a deserved lead at the break. They could have been further ahead had Al Muqbali converted the penalty which Amrinder saved. A lot of work to do for Stimac and his men.

43’ India 0-1 Oman

GOOOOAAALLL! Oman take the lead and it will go down as a Chinglensana Singh own goal. Oman exploit India’s lack of numbers on the right side as a low cross is turned into his own net by Chinglensana. Unfortunate moment for the debutant but a poor goal for India to concede.

34’ India 0-0 Oman

A rare Indian foray in the Oman box. It is all down to Suresh Singh’s persistence who wins the ball high up the field and releases Bipin Singh, But the Oman defender is alert and halts Bipin’s progress. Much better from India.

27’ India 0-0 Oman

India win their first corner of the game but nothing comes of it. Needed a batter delivery from Bipin Singh there.
