It became another FIFA World Cup qualification, another defeat for India.

India began the second half on a good note, but couldn't resist continuous pressure with Al Mandhar scoring two goals in the last ten minutes of the match.

Gurpreet saved India from early blushes in the 43rd-minute. A looping cross came in for Al-Mahaijri, who headed it from point-blank range, but Sandhu saved it!

After Jhingan's attempted header, Sunil Chhetri gave India the lead with a 25th-minute strike. The Blue Tigers had received a freekick near the box. Thapa slotted in right at Chhetri, who fired in at goal from the penalty spot.

India had a bright start with Udanta coming close in the 14th minute. It was a poor goal kick by Oman, with the ball falling for Thapa in the middle of the park. The midfielder let in a good ball. Chhetri and Udanta combined well, only for the latter to miss it!

Oman's starting XI for the match was: Faiz Al-Rushaidi; Raed Ibrahim Saleh, Abdulaziz Al Ghailani, Salaah Al-Yahyaei, Al Mundhir Al Alawi, Abdulaziz Al-Muqbali, Mohammed Al-Maslami, Harib Al-Saadi, Saad Al-Mukhaini, Ahmed Mubarak Al-Mahaijri, Ali Al-Busaidi

India's starting XI for the match was: Gurpreet; Bheke, Subhasish, Jhingan, Adil; Rowllin, Thapa, Brandon, Udanta, Ashique, Chhetri

In a match of either halves, India crashed to a disappointing defeat Vs Oman, 1-2, at the Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium.
