India’s dominance and possession were complete and Shanmugam Venkatesh was able to exchange quickly, play in the gaps and be the one to support others.

The first goal was a gift with a smart Tyson in the 32nd minute. Nepal goalkeeper Ishwar Singh, to be credited with denying India until then, failed to collect a routine collection from Mahesan Singh’s cross from the left, and it fell to the lurking Tyson, the latter slotting it into an empty net.

The lead was doubled five minutes after the change. Jangra, the thorn in the flesh of the opposition defence, foamed inside the box and covered it for Parthiv, who struck it.

The third goal, about two minutes later, took a page out of the textbook. Jangra sent it between two defenders and Parthiv followed it up and lobbed it beautifully over God for a clinical finish.

Tyson scored his second goal on a rebound in the 66th minute.

Four minutes later, Parthiv was brought down inside the box and as the referee pointed to the spot, Jangra happily made it 5-0.

Eight minutes later it was 6-0 – substitute Tankdhar bag tapping in Vibin Mohanan’s cross.

Substitute Gurkeerat made it 7-0 in the 89th minute, when he managed to snag it, put a pair past and send it to God.

There were a few more stores, and Shuva Paul completed the rout tapping at Tankdhar’s cross in added time.
