Manvir Singh equaliser helps India seal 1-1 draw in international friendly football match

India came up with an impressive show on their return to international football after more than a year as Manvir Singh found the target to help the Blue Tigers seal a 1-1 draw against Oman in Dubai.

India were without their captain Sunil Chhetri but a young side came up with an impressive show to hold higher-ranked Oman to a 1-1 draw in the first of their two international friendlies in Dubai. Manvir Singh's fine headed-goal in the 2nd half helped India share honours at the Maktoom Bin Rashid Stadium on Thursday.

India handed senior debuts to a record tally of 10 players during the hard-fought encounter, which marked their return to international football after over 400 days.

Igor Stimac's men went down trailing 0-1 after Zahir Al Aghbari's strike that followed a poor defensive error. Despite putting a strong show in the first half, the Blue Tigers headed to the break handing over the lead to Oman.

However, India came back strongly in the second half and secured the equaliser when Manvir Singh headed a lovely cross from young Bipin Singh who had scored the winning goal for Mumbai City FC in the Indian Super League final.

India will next take on UAE in their 2nd international friendly on Saturday in Dubai.
