    India 4-1 Macau
    India are through to the AFC Asian Cup 2019 in UAE after a good display over Macau. A tactical change at half-time in form of Balwant Singh changed the outlook of the match. He yet again was the man of the match after his assist helped captain Chhetri score the second goal. An unlucky own goal wrapped up the 3 points for the hosts. Jeje wrapped up the game with his first goal in injury time after Sunil Chhetri put the ball for him on a plate.
