Undoubted flop of the game. Messed up a regulation cross to gift the visitors a goal. Did not have much to do thereafter and will rue that moment for a long while
Like Sagar Thapa, did decently in defense and provided some good balls into the box from set-pieces, but none of his team-mates were able to prosper from them
Not the marauding presence that he was during the group stages going forward. In defense as well, Azadzoy kept him honest and he did not always get the better of the winger
Had trouble dealing with the physicality of the Afghans but managed to keep his head above water. A decent showing and had a couple of opportunities from corners himself, on the other end.
Put in a couple of teasing crosses and even attempted a good shot himself, which the keeper saved. Managed to do his defensive duties competently as well
Not the livewire he has been earlier, but still was a good presence on the ball. Kept his calm to instigate several attacks, but the goal eluded his side.
Was having an average game in-front of the defense, as his side looked for the equalizer. However when the chance arose from the penalty spot, the former HAL SC utility man fluffed his chances.
Did not really have a great influence on proceedings, and thus was substituted in favour of Bimal Magar.
Their talisman upfront was profligate today. Missed a great header opportunity, when he should have scored. Had a couple of other chances, but could not make them count
Another one who missed a very presentable chance, failing to head the ball with any conviction. Showed good dribbling skills but not enough of a final product.
Part of a strike force which could not make its superiority count in-front of the goal. Showed good movement but lacked that finishing touch
Was undoubtedly the top player of the game, as his double penalty save helped his side maintain their lead, though he did give away the foul in the first place! Commanded his box well and made another couple of top class saves
The central midfielder was the shield in front of the defense, and did a decent job for most of the game. Was economical in possession.
A captain's performance by Amiri. Marshalled his troops well, even after Farzad Ghulam had to leave the pitch. Communicated well and took no chances. Led the celebrations at full time with much gusto!
Was having a fine game until he collapsed due to what looked like a head injury around the 70th minute. Would be a big miss in the final.
Kept a good check on Nepal's attack down the wings. Was outnumbered on a few occasions, but did well and was composed in possession.
Kept possession well for his side and provided good width and trickery. However final ball was not always upto the mark but was a potent weapon during counter-attacks.
Replaced Jamhour and had a decent game on the wing. Remains to be seen if he keeps his place for the final
Got the goal, as he followed up on a poor bit of goalkeeping by Kiran. After that he showed admirable work-rate to press the opposition
Looked much sharper than before but unfortunately could not find the back of the net. Linked up well with the midfield and was full of running.
Not his finest game for the national team but he did link-up well with the strikers in the first half. Was sacrificed for a more defensive minded Hatifie
A warrior like performance from the right back. A lot of attacks came down his wing, but he stuck in there. Maybe could have been better positionally a couple of times.
