After a slow start, Indian player grew in confidence and started to control the midfield in the first half. Hotstar, the digital platform of Star will steam this game live via its app and website for the premium users from the Indian subcontinent. One-by-one every UAE player that passed behind Chhetri in the mixed zone made sure they appreciated India's performance in the game.

"Initially, I think, nobody expected us to be here", Constantine told ITV London. "They were supposed to cheer for the UAE national team in their match against India in the AFC Asian Cup", the UAE's Attorney General office said in a statement.

At the interval, for all of India's good work, they found themselves behind to a UAE side who had scored from the only shot on target they had in the entire first half.

Sandesh Jhingan had the first big chance of the game as he escaped his marker during a corner, but failed to keep his header down. However, India began from where they had left and pinned UAE on the back foot in the second. UAE went into the break with a 0-1 lead thanks to the strike from Mubarak in the 41st minute.

Three minutes later, India again experienced the so-near-yet-so-far moment when Udanta Singh's shot ricochets off the bar. We got some chances in the second half but luck was not in our favour today.

"We've finally got respect for Indian football, we've woken the sleeping giant". Few teams were able to cause UAE problems in their own backyard and India forced the hosts to alter their game. Just imagine if they could get a result against the hosts to seal their place into the round of sixteen for the first time since 1964! I hope it is on our side next game.

However, with Bahrain on the horizon and Thailand going up against tournament hosts UAE, India need to ensure their passage into the next round by getting maximum points over their last Group A opponent.

India surprised many with their opening game win.
