Priyangka Devi scored the match-winner in the 66th minute.
It was India, who seized the initiative early, but they failed to capitalise on their chances. Captain Shilky Devi floated a ball from the left in the 19th minute, passed it to Sumati who missed an open chance to find the back of the net.
On the 36th minute, Amisha Baxla went for a first-time shot but failed to connect it properly, as the ball went over the bar. The first half of the game was a rather quiet affair, with both teams creating many chances but failed to disturb the scorers.
The goal for India finally came on the 66th minute, when Sumati Kumari entered the Nepal box from the left, and cut it back for Priyangka, whose shot brushed off a defender, before nestling into the back of the net.
The final will be played on Wednesday, December 22, 2021, with the match kicking off at 6.30 PM IST.

At the end of the first 45 minutes, the score-line read 1-0 in favour of the hosts. In the 73’ minute Sumati Kumari made another brilliant effort to chip the ball in after her long run, but it went off target.

India started the match in a dominating fashion. Their hard work and high-pressing bore fruits as early as the 7th minute when Sumati Kumari opened the scoring. A low cross came in from the right via Amisha Baxla, and Sumati was positioned at the far post to put it into the net.
Bhutan tried to get back into the game but they were never able to put the Indian defence under much pressure. Priyangka Devi was the orchestrator in midfield for India, delivering some wonderful set-pieces. In the 17th minute, Priyangka curled in a wonderful corner from the left, and Shilky Devi got on the end of it but her header went off target.
India kept on attacking and eventually found their second goal through another set-piece. This time, India got a free-kick on the edge of the box and Priyangka Devi powered home a swerving left-footer to beat the goalkeeper.
After the break, India continued to put pressure on the rival defence. It paid off when a cross from Kristina Devi in the 53rd minute was put into the net by Priyangka to score her second goal of the game. Mariyammal was booked in the 58th minute.
Lynda Kom had a couple of good chances to score but the Bhutanese goalkeeper produced some fantastic saves to keep her at bay.
