India defeated Thailand 1-0 to end their King’s Cup campaign on a winning note. Captain Sunil Chhetri was rested as the youngsters were given a chance by Igor Stimac.
The lone goal of the match was scored by Anirudh Thapa in the 17th minute of the match. The Indian defence stood firm in front of raucous Thai support in Chang Arena, Buriram. The 51-year-old Croatian picked up his first-ever victory as the coach of the Blue Tigers.
