A spirited Afghanistan took advantage of an inconsistent India to begin their come campaign in the SAFF Football Championship here on Saturday with a 1-1 draw.

The hosts were stunned as Afghanistan's Balal Arezo struck a fine volley from inside the box just four minutes into the match.

Fortunately for India however, striker Sunil Chhetri, fresh from his trials for Glasgow Rangers, headed in a Steven Dias-cross six minutes later to make it 1-1.
