For Tanzania, Maziku Amani opened the scoring in the 20th minute off a diagol right-footer which beat a diving Indian goalkeeper Mohammad waz Khan. Eight minutes later, Sarif Khan, in an effort to intercept Asad Ali’s cross deflected the ball into his own net. For India, Komal Thatal reduced the margin in the 36th minute, gleefully tapping it in the rebound after Tanzanian goalkeeper Ramadhani had failed to gather it properly. However, Tanzania sealed it two minutes after resumption. Asad Ali curling in a free-kick from just outside the box. Speaking at the post-match media conference, Tanzanian coach Bakari Shime said India "looked tired". India assistant coach Eitebar Ibrahim said it was a “bad day” for us. “We have trust in our boys.
