Syria sack Stange after Jordan loss

Syria sack Stange after Jordan loss

India lost the match against the hosts United Arab Emirates (UAE) 2-0 in the AFC Asian Cup in Abu Dhabi on Thursday.

Thailand dismissed Milovan Rajevac after their heavy loss to India in Group A and they bounced back with a 1-0 win over Bahrain on Thursday.

India won their opening game against Thailand 4-1 and are now holding the first position in the group due to the more significant goal difference.

India made a positive start in both the halves and created many chances, but paid dearly for lacking the finishing touch. We've done exceptionally well to get our first three points.

Syria, like the Socceroos, dominated possession against the Chivalrous with 66% of the ball.

However, in the 41st minute, Khalfan Mubarak profited from an indecision by Indian defenders Anas Edathodika and Subhashish Bose who let Mubarak steal the ball from their grasps, make a darting run into the box and finish superbly from a really tight angle.




Then, unmarked at the far post, Sunil Chhetri's header after Thapa squared it for the second highest active goal-scorer in global football, was brilliantly saved by UAE custodian Khalid Eisa. Indian captain Sunil Chhetri scored a brace in the previous game to handover India their first Asian Cup game victory since 1964.

But on 26 minutes, after a break down the left, the two combined again when Suleiman stabbed home Rawshdeh's shot from close range, triggering deafening celebrations.

When asked whether the Blue Tigers view UAE as their toughest opponents in the group stage, Kotal said: "Before the Thailand game, would anybody have said that it was going to be easy?"

Al Araibi, who used to play for the Bahrain national team, was granted refugee status in Australia in 2017 and plays for Melbourne side Pascoe Vale, a second-tier club. Jeje's volley went inches off the post.

India pushed for the equaliser in the second half, Udanta Singh slamming a shot against the bar 10 minutes after the restart.

UAE got their act together and troubled the Indians occasionally and they also had one of their attempts blocked by the bar.
