Captain Sunil Chhetri expressed joy and relief after India sealed their place at the 2019 Asian Cup, underlining football's rising fortunes in the country.

India qualified for the 2019 AFC Asian Cup in style, pumping in four goals for a crushing 4-1 win over Macau in a qualifying round match here today, to make their fourth appearance in the continental event.

India's best result at the Asian Cup came in 1964 when they finished runners-up to hosts Israel. Then they crashed out in the group stage in 1984 and 2011. "Latching on to a cross from the right flank, the striker beat India custodian Gurpreet Singh Sandhu from close range in the 37th minute to negate Rowling Borges" opener that put the hosts in the lead in the 28th minute.

Nicholas Mário de Almeida Torrão scored the lone goal for the visitors in the 37th minute.

Macau lost both of its first leg matches against Kyrgyzstan (0-1) and Myanmar (0-4) and is due to play the second legs on November 14 and March 27, 2018, respectively.

India stay top of the table in Group A, maintaining a flawless record of four wins from four matches, and with 12 points, only one of Kyrgyzstan and Myanmar - both of whom have four points from three matches - can overtake them on points in their qualification group.

In the 2011 edition that was held in Doha, India had a disappointing campaign, losing all their group matches - to Australia, South Korea and Bahrain.

"We are going through a good run but we can't afford to take tomorrow's game lightly". Jeje Lalpekhlua sent a sensational pass to midfielder Borges, struck hard for the opening goal.

Jeje scored India's fourth after being fed by Chhetri in the dying minutes. Before Jeje could set it up, Narayan Das whipped in a low cross on the left. Holicharan Narzary had moved on the right wing, while Chhetri played on the left. It is a huge thing for Indian football. The substitute raced forward before squaring the ball into the box for Chhetri.

Macau Head coach Chan Hiu Ming rated the Stephen Constantine-coached side very highly at the pre-match press conference. It's just the starting of the hard work.

Earlier they had beaten Myanmar 1-0, Kyrgyz Republic 1-0 and Macau 2-0. The goal they conceded in Bengaluru was also the first that they had conceded in the third round so far.
