Asian Games 2023, India vs China: Asian Games 2023 has started in China. The Indian football team is also presenting a challenge in this tournament. Team India faced the host country China in the first match. However, this match was very bad for the Indian team and China easily won this match by 5-1. The performance of Team India players was very disappointing in this match due to which the Chinese team achieved an easy victory.

Rahul KP scored the only goal

The only goal for the tired and unprepared Indian team was scored by Rahul KP (45 plus one minute), which was the best goal of the match. However, India’s third-ranked team gave a tough fight to title contenders China in the first 45 minutes. Indian goalkeeper Gurmeet Singh Chahal performed commendably during this period and also stopped the penalty kick of opposing captain Zhu Chenjie. To make it to the second round, India will now have to defeat Bangladesh and Myanmar in their remaining two matches.

Myanmar defeated Bangladesh

In another match of the same group, Myanmar defeated Bangladesh 4-2. The Indian team reached the sports village late on Monday evening. The team also does not have four specialist defenders and there was a lack of coordination between the defensive line. The team also looked tired and it was meaningless to expect charisma from them. There was a big difference between the two teams. Due to humidity and lack of training, the Indian team looked very tired in the last half hour and had no answer to the Chinese players. After the second goal was scored due to a mistake by Sandesh Jhingan, China did not have much trouble in scoring three more goals. Jhingan then made another mistake in his penalty box, taking advantage of which China scored.

Chhetri did not get opportunities

Captain Sunil Chhetri remained on the field for 85 minutes but due to the failure of his teammates to make good moves, he did not get many chances. Rahul KP’s performance was a positive side for India. Rahul, who has played in the Under-17 World Cup, took the ball passed by Abdul Rabih from the right end and managed to score a goal by bypassing the Chinese defender and goalkeeper. Earlier, Giyao had given China the lead in the 17th minute itself. The score was tied at 1-1 at halftime. Indian players looked tired in the second half. Football Sports Development Limited (FSDL) is also responsible for the lack of quality players, which thwarted the efforts of All India Football Federation (AIFF) to field the best players for this prestigious continental competition by showing FIFA rules.
