India made three changes in the team which suffered a loss against Brazil. Maibam Linthoingambi Devi came in for goalkeeper Aditi Chauhan and Martina Thokchom and Manisha Panna in place of Kamala Devi and Grace Dangmei. The Indian women’s football team suffered a 0-3 loss to Chile in their second match of the four-nation tournament on Monday. Striker María Urrutia (14th) gave Chile the lead in the first half while Isidora Hernandez (84th) and Karen Araya (85th) broke India’s hopes of a comeback.
Manisha Kalyan, who scored the first opportunity for India against Brazil in a previous football match, scored her goal, but in the sixth minute, her shot went straight into the hands of the opposing goalkeeper. Chile then took control of the match. Javiera Toro’s attempt on Maria Rojas’ cross from the right end was foiled by Linthoingambi. A minute later, however, Chile took the lead with Maria’s goal off Rojas’ pass. Chile maintained a 1-0 lead till half time. India made a good move in the 66th minute of the second half.
Manisha pushed the ball towards 20-year-old substitute Dangmei but her shot was blocked by Endler. However, when it looked like India would be able to keep the margin short, Chile scored two goals within two minutes to ensure a 3-0 match score win. India will play its last match of the friendly tournament against Venezuela on December 1, Thursday.
