India beats Pakistan 1-0 in football friendly

BANGALORE, India (AP) — Striker Robin Singh's 44th-minute goal helped India to a 1-0 victory over Pakistan in a football friendly on Sunday.

Robin scored from a corner to settle the issue in a keenly contested first game of a two-match series.

The match, primarily featuring under-23 players in a bid to get practice ahead of next month's Asian Games at Incheon in South Korea, was the first football game between the two teams in nine years.

Sports ties between the two countries were suspended after the Mumbai terror attack in 2008 that India blamed on militants from Pakistan but a Pakistan cricket team did visit India for a short one-day series in December 2012.

The second and final game will be played on Wednesday.
