India overpowered Thailand 4-1 in their opening match of AFC Asian Cup 2019 at Al Nahyan Stadium. This is also the first win for India in Asian cup since 1964. Chhetri scored a brace for the blue tigers while Thapa & Lalpekhlua also chipped in to extend the lead. It was a balanced game in the first half; infact the War Elephants had more possession of the ball. It was only in the last 45 minutes that India played aggressively and tilted the match in its Favour.
