Both teams went into the change-over goalless.

In the 47th minute of the game, Orlando found the back of the net from a blistering counter-attack.

Towards the end of the game, Abhijit, Joysana and Shubham Sarangi were introduced by coach Nicolai Adam to find the equaliser -- but in vain.

India will face tournament hosts Atletico Paranaense on Wednesday.
