Second half goals by Unesh Budathoki (49th) and Subash Bam (68th) sealed the deal for Nepal in the second half.
In what looked like a slow start to the match, Boby Singh and Niraj Karki each got a chance in the early exchanges for India and Nepal respectively, but both failed to convert.

Minutes later, Danny Meitei made the most of an opportunity when he latched on to a stray ball inside Nepal’s penalty area and slotted it in to give India the lead.

India grew in confidence after taking the lead and made several inroads into the opposition area. But seconds before the half-time whistle, Saroj Darlami scored an absolute scorcher from long range to bring things back level.

After changing, Nepal came out with a lot of momentum in the second half. A lucky rebound fell at the feet of Budathoki, who duly slotted it into the net to give Nepal the lead in the 49th minute.

Winger Subash Bam struck the final nail when he was played through behind the Indian defense via an aerial pass which he duly brought down and beat an onrushing Sahil under the Indian post.
