| India vs Afghanistan Live Thread |

Although India's best chance came from Glan Martins' interception higher up the field, him dropping in the back-line to make it a back-four during the buildup has been crucial to the attack.

India have been turning into a 4-2-3-1 out of possession and are defending with a consistent numerical superiority in most of the zones in the defensive and middle third, forcing #AFG to switch the ball often for finding gaps.

India’s use of the wing-backs in the attacking phase drags out the central midfielders into the half-spaces, making the central zone of India’s defensive and middle third an open ground for Afghanistan to attack.

@IndianFootball @IndSuperLeague @SK_IndFootball @OfficialHoIF The Afghanistan goal came in the game as a lack of zonal marking by the Indian team late. After man-marking working wonders for them till the 80th minute, Afghanistan managed to exploit the space in the 18-yard box to punish the Blues.

Lastly, we can conclude that this was a game that #IND should have been confident about. The Blues dominated the game in the initial exchanges but were tactically outdone by #AFG as the game progressed. A lucky goal but poor second-half performance for India.

Part 2: Buildup & Progression

- Barella's quick feet and dribbling against pressure
- Barella scanning the middle third for a split second to find Locatelli in acres of space
- Beautiful outside-of-the-boot pass to find Locatelli

Part 2: Buildup & Progression (Contd.)

- Locatelli has Spinazzola and Insigne for support on the left-wing
- As the three Italians drag the Turkish midfield wide, a lot of space offered for the incoming Barella who made a brilliant run to exploit it. A blunder by Turkey.
