India U-16s suffered a 0-3 defeat in the second friendly match in UAE on Thursday.
In the first of the two friendlies scheduled against the UAE U-16s at the UAE FA Stadium in Dubai, goals from Youseef Balushi, Mohammed Al-Maamari and Mohamed Abdelsalam Issa sealed the win for the hosts.
The Indians got off to a quick start and striker Himanshu Jangra tested the UAE keeper with a powerful strike from outside the box but his effort was saved.
The home side took the lead on the 10th minute when Sultan Adel Mohamed headed in a cross from Youseef Ibrahim Al Balushi.
Midfielder Taison Singh was instrumental in opening up the UAE defence but the opposition stood strong to deny clear-cut chances at the goal.
Although India had several chances to score after the break, UAE doubled their lead with less than a quarter of an hour left on the clock through Ali Mohammed Saeed Al-Maamari.
Mohamed Abdelsalam Issa added a third right at the end when he nodded in a corner.
The U-16 sides of India and UAE will play a second friendly on January 24.
India XI: Som; Abhishek, Halen, Anish Mazumder, Shameek Vas; Ebindas Y, Amandeep, Lalremtluanga, Siba Prasad, Taison; Himanshu Jangra
