After a tight and goalless first half, Belarus took the lead through a Shuppo Nastassia penalty and Pilipenka Hanna doubled their lead. Sangita Basfore pulled one back for India in added time but it was too little too late for India. 

India quick start gave them an early chance to take the lead when Soumya Guguloth’s powerful shot from outside the box struck the crossbar. Striker Pyari Xaxa headed the rebound over the bar. 

Belarus had their chance to score midway through the half when midfielder Pilipenka Hanna was played through on goal. She beat the goalkeeper with her striker but defender Ranjana Chanu denied the forward. 

India XI: Aditi Chauhan (GK); Wangkhem Linthoingambi Devi, Ranjana Chanu, Sweety Devi, Anju Tamang; Indumathi Kathiresan (C), Sangita Basfore, Dangmei Grace (Renu 88’); Manisha Kalyan, Soumya Guguloth (Ashalata Devi 34’, Sandhiya Ranganathan 58’), Pyari Xaxa.
