The India vs Brazil encounter can be seen live on Sports18 channels in India from 8 PM IST. India conceded three goals in the second half to suffer a humiliating 0-3 defeat to Morocco to crash out of the tournament.
After keeping their rivals at bay till the half time, India conceded thrice after the break in front of a strong crowd at the Kalinga Stadium. Before the loss to Morocco, India were thrashed 8-0 by the USA in their opener.
On Friday, the Young Tigresses displayed a fighting spirit against Morocco and dished out a strong performance at the back as well as in the middle of the field. Melody Chanu was at her best under the bar for India. If it was not her brilliant saves the scoreline could have been different for India.

Having said that, the likes of Anita Kumari, Naketa and Neha are themselves to blame for squandering chances that came their way. On the other hand, Brazil’s quarterfinal qualification chances depend of the result of their match against India.
The Samba girls eked out a narrow 1-0 win over Morocco in their opener before playing out a hard-fought 1-1 win against USA in their second game. Jhonson and Carol are the only scorers for Brazil in this tournament so far and they would like to fancy their chances against the hosts.
Group A Qualification Scenario
As things stand in Group A, it’s a three-way battle. Both Brazil and USA are locked at three points each with the latter taking the top spot due to better goal difference. Morocco are third with three points. All three teams have played two games each so far.
If Brazil and USA win their respective matches, both teams will advance. Morocco need a win to qualify for the next stage while a draw would be enough for USA to enter last eight.
