Also in Group B, Jordan become the first team in the Asian Cup to qualify for the next round after beating Syria with 2-unanswered goals.

India went on to win the match 4-1 and 34-year-old Chhetri surpassed Lionel Messi to become the second-most prolific worldwide scorer in the list of active players. "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.

"Initially, I think, nobody expected us to be here", Constantine told ITV London. However, India began from where they had left and pinned UAE on the back foot in the second. We all hoped to win to satisfy the fans.

However, in the 41st minute, Khalfan Mubarak profited from an indecision by Indian defenders Anas Edathodika and Subhashish Bose who let Mubarak steal the ball from their grasps, make a darting run into the box and finish superbly from a really tight angle.

Three minutes later, India again experienced the so-near-yet-so-far moment when Udanta Singh's shot ricochets off the bar.

Against UAE, the Indians missed several opportunities, hitting the bar twice and eventually going down 0-2. They finished better than us and that made the difference.

Ali Ahmed Mabkhout (88') scored for the home team, entering the game in some desperation after a 1-1 stalemate with Bahrain in the tournament opener.

For the first time ever, twenty-four nations will compete in the pan-Asian competition instead of the usual sixteen. "We have our plans for the UAE game". Few teams were able to cause UAE problems in their own backyard and India forced the hosts to alter their game. Courtesy of this win, UAE go top of the Group A while India move to the second spot. "This has obviously improved since we have been playing together for some time", he said. With a cold, harsh lesson learnt in the game against UAE, the young Indian side should be more prepared to face another tough test in their final group game.
