India had last qualified to the AFC Asian Cup in Doha in 2011. Macau conceded an own goal through defender Lam Seng in the 70th minute to dig their own grave at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium. For Macau, Nicholas Tarrao scored in the 37th minute - their first goal of the qualifying campaign. Chetri knocked in the second goal as India played in the 4-4-2 formation with Balwant Singh and Jeje up front. Chetri was happy that India would be playing in the Asian Cup after missing out in 2015.
