GOAL! Manvir Singh blasts it home to give India 2-0 lead against Pakistan in the second half of the semifinal. This is Manvir's second goal of the night. Brilliant work from Chhangte to start the attack before Rai rolls it into the path of Manvir to rifle home with aplomb.

India create three good chances in the last five minutes. Ashique takes a curler directed to Salam but his header is not directed well. He then sends one straight towards the goal post but the Pakistani keeper does well to keep the scoreline clear.

Good defence by Pakistan as they ward off danger by kicking the ball alway inside the box after Ashique builds up by passing it to Manvir. India immediately take possession of the ball and this time Manvir shoots straight from a distance at the Pakistani keeper, who manages to save.
