India were held to a 1-1 draw against neighbours Nepal on Thursday in an international friendly.

Anjan Bista scored the opening goal in the 36th minute for Nepal before Anirudh Thapa equalised for India on the hour mark in the game.

Nepal goalkeeper Kiran Limbu parried away a strong shot from Sunil Chhetri and the reboud fell right into Thapa's feet who made no mistake in equalising for the Blue Tigers.

Speaking after the game, Indian coach Igor Stimac handed his analysis as he felt that his team deserved more than just a draw from this match.

"I think it was an exciting game, a good game of football, I must say, considering everything. The game of football today was good for the spectators, who are at home and everyone who was coming here at the ground," Stimac said at the press conference, as reported by Goal.

"I think the Indian team deserved more, considering we created a lot of clear chances, we gave a silly goal and again we had few good chances. I have a feeling that we deserved more," he added. 

The Blue Tigers will face Nepal once again in what will be their second international friendly on Sunday.
