HT Cambodia 1-1 India
The home side will be kicking themselves at half time for going into the break on level terms. They have completely dominated proceedings and have had number of chances. India have struggled to live with Cambodia's intensity and must thank their defenders for putting up an inspired show. Stephan Constantine's men had their luck with the goal when the opposition goalkeeper let the ball slip from his grasp, but let the advantage slip before they could get going. However on the balance of the overall play, they will be pleased to go in at the break level. Constantine has some thinking to do at the the break and it will be interesting to see if he changes anything for the second half. Cambodia on the other hand will be hoping for better quality in the box in the second period

GOAL! AND ANOTHER ONE! It all happened there. India went ahead through Sunil Chhetri after Cambodian goalkeeper missed a corner allowing Chhetri a tap in. The Indians though switched off and Cambodia equalised after a good move. Breathtaking!
LIVE NEWS and UPDATES
India claim an away win in International friendlies after 12 years. Positive result heading into the Asian Cup qualifying campaign, but the performance was much to be desired of. India must thank Cambodia's inefficiency at both ends of the pitch for claiming the victory as the home side dominated large parts of the game. Constantine' men put up a much better show in the second half and just about deserved the win. But tougher tests await the Blue Tigers
Preview: The Indian football team will look to iron out the glitches and get their combinations right ahead of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup qualifiers, when they take on Cambodia in a friendly in Cambodia on Wednesday.
India last played against Puerto Rico in September last year, a fixture they famously won 4-1 under the leadership of Gurpreet Singh Sandhu.
Cambodia, ranked 173rd, 41 places below India (132nd), come into the tie on the back of a 7-2 thrashing at the hands of Saudi Arabia in January.
"We will be playing on an artificial turf. We would have preferred to play on grass. But we need to adjust. It is a very important match for us ahead of the crucial match against Myanmar in the AFC Cup Qualifiers. I thank AIFF for arranging the same," India coach Stephen Constantine told www.the-aiff.com.
"There are 4-5 players who are carrying slight niggles so I haven't yet decided on the starting XI. Let me see what suits us best. The weather conditions in Phnom Penh are quite similar to that in Yangon and it will be a good test for us," he added.
Goalkeeper Sandhu will be leading the side, his second consecutive match as the captain.
India would expect to start with Sandhu in goal. The defence will take the familiar shape of Sandesh Jhingan and Arnab Mondal being flanked by Pritam Kotal and Narayan Das.
Anas Edathodika could be in contention for a debut as well in place of Jhingan, who has not had the best of seasons so far with Bengaluru FC.
In the midfield, the visitors will be without the services of injured Pronay Halder with Eugeneson Lyngdoh's poor form a concern.
Last time these two sides played, India won 6-0 which is still a record for the highest margin of victory by goals for India at home.
Cambodia have been winless in their last five games. India have won their last four games straight.

While the regular weekday fixture will be a 7:30 pm start, the double headers on weekends, which until last season were a 5:30 pm feature, will now move to 9:30 pm start.
