With a comprehensive 2-1 win over defending champions India in a highly anticipated game, Nepal excelled against the opponent team throughout the both halves.  Two thumping goals in the second half sealed the semifinal berth for Nepal as the winner from Group A. First Anil Gurung kicked in a rebounded header to make the score 1-0 and few minutes later, Jumanu Rai grabbed a long pass to score a wonderful left footed goal. Lagging behind by two goals, India did score in the dying minutes of the game but it was already too late for any comeback. Nevertheless, they also qualified for semifinals courtesy of better head to head score against Pakistan.
