India equalised in the dying stages of the game as Adil Kahn rose high to head India back into the match. 

Bangladesh's Saad Uddin had given them lead in the end of the first half of their Group E FIFA 2022 World Cup Qualifier at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan in Kolkata, reports News18. 

The clash apart from being a World Cup Qualifier will also serve as the 2023 AFC Asian Cup qualifier. 

The Igor Stimac-coached side, ranked 104 in the world, are strong favourites to beat neighbours Bangladesh who are 83 rungs below them.

The India vs Bangladesh clash was held at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan, also known as the Saltlake Stadium, with tickets having been sold out days ahead of the clash. 

The colossal Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan has a capacity of 65,000 and, according to ticket sales on the eve of the match, is expected to be packed to the rafters. 

In fact, Kolkata is set to host the national team for the first time since 2011 when they beat Malaysia 3-2 in a friendly.
