India end campaign with 1-1 draw against Syria

AHMEDABAD, India: India ended their campaign with a 1-1 draw against Syria in Intercontinental Cup at the EKA Arena here on Tuesday.

18-year-old Narender Ghelot’s 51st-minute header was cancelled out by Firas Al Khatib’s 78th-minute penalty kick as both teams shared the spoils of the battle.

The Blue Tigers started the match on an attacking note and Udanta Singh’s cross as early as the 2nd minute rang the danger bells for the Syrians, but a prying Sunil Chhetri in the box could not do any damage as the opponents survived.
