India qualify for AFC Asian Cup 2019

India qualify for AFC Asian Cup 2019”

Turning a listless first-half display around against a less-fancied opponent, India sealed qualification for the 2019 AFC Asian Cup with a 4-1 win over Macau, thanks to goals from Rowllin Borges, Sunil Chhetri, Jeje Lalpekhlua and an own goal from Lam Ka Seng at the Kanteerva Stadium, Bengaluru on Wednesday.

India would have their sights set for qualifying for the 2019 AFC Cup qualifiers when they take on Macau in the fifth match of the third round. The winners led 1-1 at the interval. The goal they conceded in Bengaluru was also the first that they had conceded in the third round so far. Earlier, the hosts were stunned in the opening session after Nicholas Mario Tarrao struck a historic goal for Macau. Sent through by Jeje, Balwant - who was subbed in at the start of the second half - was off in a flash and Chhetri went up through the other side. Jeje took advantage of some sloppy ball handling form Macau to feed Balwant, who squared for Chettri's tap-in in the 60th minute.

What channel will air the AFC Asian Cup qualifier between India and Macau? . They are atop Group A with 12 points from four matches and play Myanmar on November 24 and Kyrgyzstan on March 27 next year. Borges capitalised on a huge mistake from Macau defender as the ball deflected back at his feet and he did justice to it by sliding it past the goalkeeper in the 28th minute. The drizzle had stopped by then and both teams headed to the interval at 1-1. But an acrobatic Ho Man Fai kept off Sandesh Jhingan's header off a Eugeneson Lyngdoh corner.

With a little still left in the tank, Constantine's men added a fourth in the second minute of injury time. It would be a courageous punt to think of any result other than an Indian win, especially keeping India's 2-0 win in Macau on September 5 in mind.

The third substitution was made in the 77th minute - Salam Ranjan Singh replacing Anas Edathodika and making his debut for the Indian National Team in the process. Chhetri released Holicharan, whose shot was blocked in the 54th minute. The shot flew inches wide of the goal as Macau survived to tell the tale.

The match was put to bed in the 70th minute, when an unlucky Seng found his own net.

However, it was written in the stars for Jeje Lalpekhlua as the Mizo striker found the net in the dying embers of the match, tapping in a Sunil Chhetri pass to make the scoreline read 4-1.
