A good way to end the day


Maftuna Shoyimova’s wondergoal from a free-kick settles a close contest between the two teams. India played really well in the second half and missed two big chances to take the lead and were punished by the hosts late on. Good overall performance from India but just couldn’t get over the line there.

86’ IND 0-1 UZB

GOOOAAALL! UZBEKISTAN SCORE! And it’s a wonderstrike from Uzbekistan’s No 11 who fires in a thirty-yard free-kick past Aditi Chauhan. Heartbreak for India who have played so well in the second half.

81’ IND 0-0 UZB

Another chance for India. The winger wins the ball on the edge of the box but can’t find Grace with her pass. Grace would have had a tap in but the pass was too weak.

76’ IND 0-0 UZB

A golden chance for India to take the lead as Dangmei Grace races clear of the Uzbek defence but her attempt is saved by the goalkeeper. Grace will be disappointed with the finish there. Best chance of the half so far

75’ IND 0-0 UZB

Still goalless. The game is lacking intensity as both teams are struggling to construct attacks of any note

58’ IND 0-0 UZB

Double change for India. Daya Devi and Ranjana Chanu come off for Sandhiya Ranganathan and Jabamani Tudu

46’ IND 0-0 UZB

Second half begins.


It’s goalless at the break. India have enjoyed the rub of the green as Uzbekistan have hit the woodwork twice but overall they have competed well with the hosts posing a threat in patches. Aditi Chauhan with a fine save right at the start of the game.

41’ IND 0-0 UZB

INDIA SURVIVE! Huge slice of luck for India as they fail to deal with a testing cross from the left. The Uzbek striker fires it onto the crossbar before India clear the danger. Nervy moments for India at the end of this first half.

36’ IND 0-0 UZB

The substitute Daya Devi involved straight away. She sneaks in behind the defence but the Uzbek goalkeeper is first to the ball and clears the danger.

30’ IND 0-0 UZB

OFF THE POST! Uzbekistan rattle the woodwork. India get away there. The hosts have stepped up against after a slight drop in intensity.

27’ IND 0-0 UZB

An early change for India. Pyari Xaxa is replaced by Heigrujam Daya Devi

24’ IND 0-0 UZB

A half chance for India. Manisha takes a shot at Uzbekistan goal from distance but it flies just over the crossbar. Wrong option perhaps by the Indian forward who had an option to pass to her teammate who was in space on the edge of the box. Much better from India in the last few minutes.

22’ IND 0-0 UZB

India now enjoying a spell with the ball but they fail to work the goalkeeper during this period. Both teams not at their best so far and giving the ball away too cheaply.

14’ IND 0-0 UZB

The home side dominating the possession so far but the Indians have been quite solid at the back so far and apart from that early save, Chauhan hasn’t been too busy in goal.

9’ IND 0-0 UZB

Indian line-up today: Aditi Chauhan (GK), Sweety Devi, Linthoingambi Devi, S Ranjana Chanu, Anju Tamang, Indumathi (C), Sangita Basfore, Dangmei Grace, Manisha, Soumya Guguloth, Pyari Xaxa

4’ IND 0-0 UZB

SAVE! India almost behind early but Aditi Chauhan saves the day with a great save from point blank range.

1’ IND 0-0 UZB

KICK OFF! The game gets underway in Olmaliq. Can India spring a surprise?
