Asian Games 2023, India vs China Highlights: India lose 1-5 against China in Hangzhou

India vs China, Asia Cup 2023 Highlights: India did put up a fight but were completely blown by the time the contest was over as the unit endured a 1-5 hammering against China in the Group A encounter at the Asian Games on Tuesday. It was China, who broke the deadlock in the 16th minute after Gao Tianyi found the net from outside the six-yard box. However, Rahul KP scored a sensational goal to help India rally from behind in the injury time of the first-half as both sides went into the interval with a 1-1 scoreline. China, however, dominated the final 45 minutes. First they restored their lead in the 51st minute with Dai Weijun scoring from outside the box. Tao Qianglong then compounded India's woes by scoring twice in the span of three minutes as China extended their lead to 4-1 in the 75th minute. Fang Hao joined the scoresheet right before the final whistle as India finished the contest on a disappointing note.

The problems India had to deal with were lack of players, who were not available for the match due to visa related issues. In addition the last minute arrival also didn't help India's case, which was reflecting on the team's performance in the second half. The team reached China late on Monday night and headed into the clash without any practice. India had finalised the squad on Friday as few Indian Super League (ISL) refused to release the players with the new season starting from September 21. India are clubbed in Group A alongside host China, Bangladesh, and Myanmar. Myanmar have defeated Bangladesh 1-0 in the other fixture from the group, which was played earlier in the afternoon.
