Two goals in each half saw India win the game. Sanju scored in the first half, Dangmei Grace netted the second goal just minutes ahead of the full-time whistle.

 

 

This is India’s second successive victory. They had defeated Indonesia 3-0 in the previous match on Sunday.

India started off with a great momentum right from the start with Dalima Chhibber being the main initiator. A couple of early free-kicks from long range saw winger Sanju, and striker Anju Tamang missing by a small margin.

India vs Indonesia: As it happened

As Head Coach Maymol Rocky egged her team on, Sanju put the visitors into the lead with a perfectly-placed shot into the top right corner after Ratanbala played her through into the Indonesian penalty area. This goal gave more enthusiasm to the Indian side, as they started attacking with more purpose.

The home side nearly levelled a few minutes later, as a cross from the right was met with a header. But it hit the cross-bar and the ball went out of play.

India, however, was not much willing to let the hosts come back and preferred to keep the play in the opposition third for long periods. Their efforts finally paid rich dividends in the second minute of injury-time when Dangmei Grace chipped a rebound over the Indonesia keeper to make it 2-0.

 

In the first game, Ratanbala Devi led the India women’s football team to a 3-0 win. She scored a hattrick in the second half.

The Indian Women’s team now is preparing for the Tokyo Olympic qualifiers second round.

India Starting XI: Aditi Chauhan (C); Dalima Chhibber, Sweety Devi, Ashalata Devi, Jabamani Tudu; Sangita Basfore, Ratanbala Devi, Indumathi Kathiresan; Sanju, Dangmei Grace, Anju Tamang.
