India and Sri Lanka remain goalless after 100 minutes of football. Worrying for India, seven-time SAFF championship winners, there is no winner yet. Sri Lanka get a tie after two defeats to save some pride. Blue Tigers, the far superior team on paper, look toothless after two games.
India and Sri Lanka are goalless after 45 minutes. Only real chance in the first half for Liston, who couldn’t convert
India plays XI: Gurpreet Singh Sandhu (GK), Rahul Bheke, Subhasish Bose, Seriton Fernandes, Anirudh Thapa, Glan Peter Martins, Sunil Chhetri (c) , Udanta Singh, Mandar Rao Dessai, Liston Colacao, Suresh Singh
India have two more games to go: against Nepal (October 10) and hosts Maldives (October 13) to advance to the next round. Ancient India would pass games and win even if it played poorly. Well not so much. Now, in need of massive improvements, to get past teams in the Southeast Asia region. Until then, goodbye!
India dominates possession, deserving a ton of corners, but nothing essential to score a goal. A single shot on target won’t cut it.

Cross? Shot? The desperate ball from the left is controlled by Farukh, who tries to praise the goalkeeper, but the ball is plucked by the Lanka keeper
India gets a free kick and goalkeeper Gurpreet sends the shot long. Subhasish nods to Manvir in the penalty area, but Sri Lankan goalkeeper Sujan Perera picks him up. A moment later another cross comes and this time the goalkeeper is rammed into the body with a clatter.
The referee has raised the board and extended it eight minutes. Justified given the changes and disruptions to bookings
India is getting closer. From outside the box, cross to Sunil Chhetri, who is looking for another blue shirt but is blocked for a corner. After the corner, Subhasish Bose falls from the far post but burns it
Corner for India, Sunil Chhetri misses control, he falls on Farukh Chaudhary and his shot from outside the box goes past.
Changes for both teams. Sri Lanka: Aakib replaces Razeek and Manvir Singh replaces Mandar Rao for India
Then several bookings in a short time. Sri Lanka’s Supan and Sujan and India coach Igor Stimac
India has the ball in the net but it doesn’t count. There was a foul before Farukh Chaudhary’s left footed shot hit the goal. No real protest on this matter. A few seconds earlier, Igor Stimac went into the book for protesting the Sri Lankan players’ time-wasting tactics. Lo and behold, now Lanka goalkeeper Sujan is suspended for a long free kick.
India vs. Sri Lanka, SAFF Championship: India will try to work together in the SAFF Championship when it comes to its second game against Sri Lanka starts. Blue Tigers started the tournament with a disappointing 1: 1 against Bangladesh.
India took the lead against Bangladesh, dominated the first game and should have seen the home game. With the Bangla Tigers down to 10, India had a chance to reinforce Sunil Chhetri’s goals, but passive play allowed Bangladesh to equalize from a corner.
Sri Lanka enter the game after two losses to India where they conceded four goals and scored two goals.
Chhetri is only one goal behind legendary Pele in terms of international goals scored and a battered Sri Lanka will be a great opportunity to add to his record. But he would need the help of others.
« We have analyzed our game against Bangladesh and we are not satisfied with the end result. We are two points away from what we should have in our kitten, » said Stimac at the Conference before the game.
