India were the dominant side with more shots on the Singapore goal but failed to convert them except for once. “There are a lot of things we could have done better. We missed a lot of chances and maybe we could have defended a little better. I’m sure the coach will have a talk with us about that,” Chhetri said after the match.

“Without being too hard on ourselves, there are a few things we need to work on.”

Asked about India’s last game against Vietnam on Tuesday, Chhetri said: “We have seen their game against Singapore (which Vietnam won 4-0 on Thursday). They are really good, especially at home. They are one of the most improved sides in Asia in the last five years.

“We really have to go back to the drawing board and improve against Vietnam. We really have to work hard. It won’t be the same (as Singapore).” said the 38-year-old talisman.

Asked about the weather during the match, he said: “No apologies from our side about the weather. We were here two days ago and I have to say the weather is a bit different here but it’s quite nice.

“The table was great. A lot depends on how we played and we have to do better.”

Ikhsan Fandi put Singapore ahead in the 37th minute when his free-kick from about 25 yards out took a deflection off the Indian wall and beat a diving goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, who was able to get a hand on the ball but failed to prevent it from going in in net.

Singapore’s joy lasted for six minutes when Ashique Kuruniyan equalized in the 43rd minute off an assist from Chhetri.
Jeakson Singh made an interception in Singapore’s half, passed the ball to Chhetri, who put Kuruniyan through on goal.

Kuruniyan calmly slotted the ball home with a left-footed grounder that beat Singapore goalkeeper and captain Hassan Sunny.

India is currently ranked 104th while Singapore is ranked 159th. The last time the two teams met in 2012, Singapore won 2-0.
