Kalyani Football Ground at 3 P.M
FC GOA PIPS CHENNAI CITY FC 2-1 AT KALYANI STADIUM
10 minutes into the game and Liston Colaco, star of the previous match, scored against Chennai City FC. Just when FC Goa was thinking they can relax for a bit, in the 18th minute, Mashoor Shereef headed the ball right into the net and scored the equaliser for Chennai City FC. In the 31st minute, Nestor Dias scored the second goal for FC Goa, thus giving a much-needed lead of 2-1. Thus 3 goals scored in the first half an hour set the mood for the match.
The adrenaline rush till the half-time whistle was completely juxtaposed with the goalless second half. Chennai City FC tried hard to score the necessary equaliser, but all went in vain as the ball would go over the bars or found itself straight into the hands of the FC Goa goalie.
Thus when the referee blew the final whistle, the scoreboard showed 2-1 in FC Goa’s favour. FC Goa will meet Real Kashmir FC in a deciding match for the group on August 17, while Chennai City FC will play their final match for this edition’s Durand Cup on August 18, both matches to be played at Kalyani.
