India vs Pakistan, Asian Champions Trophy 2018 Highlights:

00:13 (IST) 21 Oct 2018
THAT'S THAT! India beat Pakistan 3-1

Great start for India. That's two wins out of two. Pakistan started well and even got the first goal but once Manpreet equalised, India were pretty much unstoppable. Pakistan could not keep up with their quick attacks and in the end, they lost by a two-goal margin. 

23:56 (IST) 20 Oct 2018
9 mins left in 4th quarter

Sreejesh has walked off the court and  Krishan Pathak takes his place. India just need to hold on now. 

23:46 (IST) 20 Oct 2018
5 mins left in 3rd quarter

Pakistan have more possession but India are looking vicious on the counter. Manpreet and Mandeep were in the D for India with just two Pakistani defenders there but the latter manage to parry the danger away.

23:35 (IST) 20 Oct 2018
GOAL! Mandeep gives India the lead

Oh, that is extraordinary. Mandeep takes two touches to keep the ball in possession, he has his back to the net and he flicks the ball backwards between his feet. It roles into the net. 

23:31 (IST) 20 Oct 2018
That Manpreet goal

For football fans, the word that describes it best would be gollazzo. Manpreet veered between two Pakistani players to enter the D through the centre before unleashing the shot. That was one hell of a goal.  

23:23 (IST) 20 Oct 2018
HALF TIME! India 1-1 Pakistan

Manpreet Singh's goal has reinvigorated the Indians. Pakistan have bested them for most of this half but after that goal, India have been a different beast. Can expect a few more goals if they keep this up. 

23:22 (IST) 20 Oct 2018
2 mins to go in 2nd quarter

India hounding Pakistan now. Nilkanta Sharma’s flick went just wide of the post after being set up beautifully by Mandeep’s cut-back. Close. 

23:16 (IST) 20 Oct 2018
GOAL! Captain Manpreet scores the equaliser

It is captain Manpreet who scores the equaliser for India. Pakistan give him space inside the D and he punishes them for it. 

23:11 (IST) 20 Oct 2018
1st quarter ends, India 0-1 Pakistan

Mohammad Zubair almost hit the ball into the goal, the Indian defence looks a little lost at the moment. 

22:55 (IST) 20 Oct 2018
5 mins left in 1st quarter

India get another PC but nothing comes out of it. They are dominating possession but nothing meaningful has come out of it. 

22:48 (IST) 20 Oct 2018
GOAL! India 0-1 Pakistan

Pakistan win a PC and Mohammad Irfan Jr scores from it. That didn't take long and the Indians seem a little shell-shocked by that.
