It was end to end football right from the beginning of the match but neither side could make an impact in the final third. The only major chance of the first half came to Fito Miranda in the 44th minute when he found himself at a handshaking distance to score.
Katsumi Yusa snatched away the ball from Harpreet’s feet inside the box and square the ball to Fito but the Spanish striker failed to even touch the ball.
The hosts, though finally salvaged the lead within four minutes of the second half kick-off. Jockson Dhas sent a long ball inside the box from which Katsumi attempted a header. The ball had initially hit the crossbar but the Japanese did not make a mistake in converting the header from the rebound.
