Mosab Balhous  2 The experienced goalkeeper had his easiest outing of this Nehru Cup campaign, as Nepal failed to test him, with long balls into the box being the only time he was involved in the game.
Yasser Shoshara  2.5 The centre-back had a good outing, as he snuffed out whatever danger the Nepali attackers posed with relative ease. Was dominant in the air and positionally astute.
Khaled Brijawi  2.5

The centre-back had an all-action packed evening, as he tackled with vigour and let the Nepali attackers know that they were in a contest. Gave nothing away all evening and forced the opponent strikers to drop deep in order to have any kind of an influence on the game.

Mohd. Zubaida  2.5 Dealt with Jumanu Rai and Bharat Khawas, as and when they came down his wing. With not much defending to do, Zubaida provided good width in attack for the Red Eagles. Got into promising positions but his crosses were not always of the desired quality.
Alaa Alshbli 2.5

The wing-back has been the standout player for the Syrians this tournament, and though he did not have as major an impact on the proceedings as he has had in the games before, he still was one of the major contributors towards the Syrian win with a good display down the right wing.

Zahir Almedani 3 Almedani sat the deepest of the Syrian midfielders, but still found enough time to assist the first goal. Intercepted Nepali attacks in midfield with some distinction, and stamped his authority on the game.
Ali Ghalioum (Top of the Match )  3.5 Provided good width and cutting edge to Marwan Khouri’s side. Looked to take on the Nepali wing-backs whenever given an opportunity and showed great movement to latch onto Mardikian’s pass for the second goal.
Mohd. Al Rifai  2.5 Had a competent showing in midfield, without ever catching the eye. Kept possession well in the middle of the park and was a vital cog in a well-oiled Syrian attack.
Mardik Mardikian 3 The striker is still remarkably goal shy, but added more to the Syrian attack outside the box than he has done over the course of the tournament till now. Highlight of the game was the exquisite pass to Ghalioum for the second goal.
Abdul Almjarmesh 2.5 Another player who linked up well with the front two of his side. Kept the ball ticking in midfield and will be satisfied with his showing today.
Hani Altayar 3.5

The Syrian targetman had a great start to the game, making full use of the space afforded to him by the Gorkhalis defenders to put his side ahead. Built on that to have a fabulous match as he set-up several chances for his team-mates, as the Nepali defenders found it tough to deal with his physical approach.

Subs:    
Hamzeh Al Aitoni  NA Came on as a late substitute.
Zakari Al Omari  NA Came on as a late substitute.

Kiran Chemjong  2.5 The shot stopper of Nepal had a decent game continuing his man of the match performance against India. He easily collected the balls from the air and made a few good saves.
Rohit Chand  1.5 Nepal's defenders collectively had a bad game. Rohit Chand did make a couple good challenges inside the penalty box and tried to run down the wings several times. He was also involved in an unnecessary heated exchange with  Al Shbli.
Sagar Thapa  1.5

Sagar Thapa was caught napping for the first Syrian goal and did not making any attempt to close down down Al Tayar.

Sandeep Rai  1.5 Sandeep Rai was the other of the three defenders. His performance against Syria was very average but did deflect a few crosses from Ali Ghiloum and Al Shbli.
Biraj Maharjan 2.5

Biraj Maharjan worked tirelessly for his team. He was deployed on the right flank and continuously tried to find Bharat Khawas and Jumanu Rai. He also won a couple of battles against the dangerous Mardik Mardikian.

Sabindra Shrestha 1.5

Sabindra Shrestha had to be substituted at the half and hour mark after picking up an injury. Prior to that he could not influence the game in any way.

Raju Tamang 2 Raju Tamang was at the heart of midfield and started the game very brightly for Nepal. He held the ball well in the midfield and put in a few hard tackles to win the ball from Syria. He unfortunately couldn't get much help from his team-mates.
Bhola Silwal  1.5 Bhola Silwal had a below par performance for his team and did not make any significant contribution down the right wing.
Jagjit Shrestha  1.5 Jagjit Shreshta tried hard to put his team back on atleast level terms but was beaten consistently by Al Shbli. Towards the end of the game his frustration was evident as he made a few rough tackles.
Jumanu Rai
(Flop of the match)
1.5 A lot was expected from Jumanu Rai before the start of the tournament but he unfortunately could not inspire the Gorkhalis. In the game he was consistently marked by Sushura and Zubaida who did not give him any space to move about. Even if he did beat the defenders, he could not find any support from his team mates. He was also substituted at start of the second half.
Hani Altayar 3.5

The Syrian targetman had a great start to the game, making full use of the space afforded to him by the Gorkhalis defenders to put his side ahead. Built on that to have a fabulous match as he set-up several chances for his team-mates, as the Nepali defenders found it tough to deal with his physical approach.

Subs:    
Anil Gurung  1.5 Anil Gurung came on at the start of the second half and looked to polish new life into his team. His hopes to inspire the team were cut short after a brilliant second half defensive display from Syria.
Sujal Shrestha 1.5 Sujal Shrestha came on a substitute in the first half. He failed to mark Ali Ghiloum for the second goal and had a very bad game overall.
Santosh Sahukhala NA Came on as a substitute in the last ten minutes of the game.
