Football: India hold Leyton Orient to 1-1 draw

Press Trust of India

Posted: Aug 01, 2001 at 1650 hrs IST

Putting up an improved performance, India held third division Leyton Orient Football Club to a 1-1 draw in the third match of their tour to England on Tuesday night.

India, who had earlier lost 0-3 to Brentford Football Club and O-2 to former European Cup champions Nottingham Forest Club will next meet first division Walsall Football Club on August 3 in their last outing.

After a goalless first half, striker Brendan McElholm, who came as a substitute, converted a corner to put Orient into the lead in the 63rd minute. India salvaged their prestige scoring the equaliser in the 79th minute when star striker I.M. Vijayan shot home from outside the box. Incidentally, Vijayan also came as a substitute.

India had more scoring opportunities than their rival but could not capitalise on them owing to poor finish.
