AIFF PRESS RELEASE : Centenary club Quess East Bengal (QEB) returned to winning ways, putting it across Indian Arrows 3-1 at Mumbai’s Cooperage stadium on Monday (February 17, 2020) evening. Jamie Santos Colado, Asheer Akhtar and Didika Ralte scored for the Red and Golds while Vikram Partap got his fourth goal of the 13th Hero I-League season after missing a penalty, to get his side on the scoresheet.

Quess East Bengal, following the result, got out of relegation zone and climbed to sixth on the table with 15 points from 12 games. The Arrows continue to remain rooted at the bottom with eight points after having played the same number of games.The Red & Golds took an early lead in the game when a long ball from their own half was headed down by Espada onto the path of his countryman Colado. The Spaniard unleashed a thunderous left-footed volley across keeper Lalbiakhula Jongte’s goal to bulge the net in the fourth minute.

After the high-tempo start to the half, it clocked only two shots on target and three corners (all against Indian Arrows) as the visitors took the break with their lead intact.The Venkatesh-coached side had a chance to be back into the game just 30 seconds into the second half when Abhash Thapa handled the ball off a Nikhil Raj shot inside the box. The referee pointed to the spot but Vikram Partap shot wide.

17.02.2020 : INDIAN ARROWS <b><font color=red> ( 1-3 )</b> </font> EAST BENGAL (FT)

To the talented youngster’s credit, he made amends with a stunner of a strike in the 54th minute of the game, when he stole the ball off defender Asheer Akhtar’s feet with a brave header and followed up with a composed finish past Mawia Ralte in the Quess East Bengal goal, to even things up. Ayush Adhikari also deserved praise for spotting Vikram’s run with a measured long ball from well inside their own half.Their joy was shortlived however as the visitors struck twice off as many corners within a space of four minutes to put things beyond their reach.

First, it was Kromah’s drive that earned them the first corner. It was floated in by Brandon and Samad Mallick came running into the near post to deflect a header towards the path of Asheer Akhtar. It was the diminutive defender’s chance to make amends as he made no mistake with the connection for his first goal of the season.

With Brandon having being replaced by Juan Mera, the second corner was taken by Colado. Hero of the Match Didika Ralte, this time, placed himself on the first post and rose higher than his marker to lodge a powerful header past a hapless Jongte for the third and final time in the match.Indian Arrows tried their best but Mario Rivera’s boys did enough to slow the tempo down and play out the last few minutes for a convincing victory. Quess East Bengal will make their journey all the way to Imphal to face TRAU on February 23, 2020 whereas Indian Arrows will travel to Srinagar to face the Snow Leopards one day later (February 24, 2020).

Tiddim Road Athletic Union registered a comfortable 2-0 victory over All India Football Federation’s (AIFF) developmental side Indian Arrows at the Tilak Maidan in Goa on Sunday, January 12. Naocha Singh scored in the 44th minute to open the scoreline before Princewill Emeka doubled the visitor’s advantage in the 79th minute.

12.01.2020: INDIAN ARROWS <b><font color=red> 0-2 </b></font> TRAU FC  (FT)

Arrows head-coach Shanmugam Venkatesh made a couple of changes to his previous line-up, with Aman Chetri replacing Harpreet Singh and Harmanpreet Singh taking Manvir Singh’s place up front, signalling a switch to 3-4-3. Dimitris Dimitriou made a solitary change, seemingly happy with his newfound cohesion in his side. Sandeep Singh was named to start at the back, at the expense of Deepak Devrani.

TRAU’s persistence paid off its due dividends going into the break. In the 44th minute, Wahengbam Luwang’s corner was met by Naocha Singh inside the box, and with a flurry of blue and white shirts in the box, got just the right touch to take it past the keeper to give the visitors a well-deserved lead at half-time.

Dimitris Dimitriou’s men came out all guns blazing in the second half, picking up the same tempo which they had left off in. Arrows skipper Vikram Partap Singh, who had enjoyed a startling start to the season, found himself isolated for large parts, not seeing enough of the ball to spark a catalyst for the comeback.

In the 64th minute, a throw-in from Abhishek Das into the box was well-received by Emeka and with the angle not in his favour, he tried an audacious chip over the keeper but Jongte was alert to the danger and picked up the bones.TRAU doubled their lead in the 79th minute, when a beautifully weighted pass by Phalguni Singh was well received by Emeka on the turn and with a delicate first touch, took it beyond his marker and placed it home through the legs of Jongte to wheel away in celebration and rubberstamp the three points for his side.

The referee blew for full-time to bring to an end, while the Imphal-based outfit walked away with three points in the bag, courtesy of a thoroughly professional display.Indian Arrows remain rooted to the bottom of the Hero I-League standings, while TRAU climb to sixth in the table, with eight points to their good.

AIFF PRESS RELEASE : All India Football Federation’s (AIFF) developmental side Indian Arrows played out a 1-1 draw with NEROCA FC at the Tilak Maidan in Goa on Sunday, January 5. Sushil Meitei gave the visitors the lead in the 24th minute before Vikram Partap Singh equalised for the hosts three minutes to the end of the first half.

Arrows head coach Shanmugam Venkatesh retained the majority of his previous line-up, with only two changes in the form of Aman Chetri slotting into the front three ahead of Harmanpreet Singh and Bikash Yumnam starting at the back in place of Saurabh Meher. Hoping for a repeat of their stellar performance against Churchill Brothers, coach Venkatesh stuck to his tried and tested 4-3-3 formation.

NEROCA head coach Gift Raikhan, on the other hand, opted for an avant-garde approach, fielding a 4-2-3-1. Gaty Kouami was reinstated into the starting eleven, forming a double pivot with Chanso Horam in the middle of the park. Khaiminthang Lhungdim served in the number ten role, with Boubacar Diarra as the lone striker upfront.

The match struggled for direction in the opening stages, with either of the sides struggling to retain possession for long. The first real opening of the match fell to the Arrows in the 15th minute. A great through ball by Ayush Adhikari found Vikram Partap Singh, who had made a well-timed run, but was denied in the nick of time by a calculated tackle from Ousmane Diawara.

In the 24th minute, it was NEROCA who took the lead through a free-kick about 25 yards from goal. Sushil Meitei was on the other end of the set-piece and his effort went over the wall and into the bottom right corner, through the palms of Lalbikhlua Jongte in the Arrows goal.The visitors almost doubled their lead four minutes later, this time through Boubacar Diarra. The Malian forward was at the right place to head a Meitei cross towards goal, but his effort flashed a whisker wide off the woodwork.

The Arrows, who were enjoying lion’s share of possession, started showing more intent in the final ten minutes of the half and their persistence was rewarded going into half-time. In the 42nd minute, the hosts earned a corner which was taken by Givson Singh and headed across to the far post by Vikram Pratap for the equaliser, as both sides headed into halftime with a goal apiece.

Gift Raikhan’s men came out in the second half with more intent, looking to strike early. In the 48th minute, a beautifully weighted ball by Lhungdim was latched onto by Khanngam Horam and with only the keeper to beat, he hit it straight at him.The visitors were turning on the style and in what can be summed up as a moment of deft brilliance in the 56th minute, Gaty Kouami displayed his finesse and flair. Just when he seemed to be losing possession, the Togo midfielder scooped the ball with an exquisite first touch and tried pulling off a spectacular with a scissor kick. It was nothing short of an audacious attempt indeed but Jongte, in goal, was all alert to collect.

Indian Arrows had a late surge in the closing stages of the game and in the 86th minute, had a huge shout for a penalty when Vikram was brought down in the box by Diawara but the referee didn’t pay any heed to that.The scoreline remained unaltered as the spoils were shared in a thoroughly entertaining draw in Goa. Either side’s position in the Hero I-League table remain unchanged, with Shanmugam Venkatesh’s side are placed tenth with four points, while NEROCA remain ninth having amassed one point more.

AIFf PRESS RELEASE : n the first massive upset of Hero I-League 2019-20 season, Indian Arrows came from behind to defeat the in-form Churchill Brothers FC Goa in their own backyard by a score of 2-1. Reaping the benefits of the tactical brilliance of Shanmugam Venkatesh, the substitutes of the Arrows proved to be the game-changers. This was the first win for Indian Arrows in four matches and the first defeat for Churchill Brothers in three.

It was one of those rare days for Churchill Brothers when Dawda Ceesay was starting on the bench. Instead, Coach Bernardo Tavares started with Khalif Al Hassan. The half started to the home team’s surprise as Indian Arrows looked like a completely different team. Arrows dominated possession and pressed high, trying to get the first break of the match. The first major attempt came within five minutes of the start of play as captain Vikram Partap Singh made a run down the left flank, but the cross from him went straight to the Churchill keeper.
28.12.2019 : CHURCHILL BROTHERS <b><font color=red> 1-2 </b></font> INDIAN ARROWS (FT..)
Churchill seemed to be on the back foot but the same didn’t stay for long. With 16 minutes on the clock, Willis Deon Plaza started to assert his presence in the game, beating two Arrows defenders, eventually to be tackled by Lalbiakhlua Jongte. The shot, though, was going towards the goal, which was eventually cleared off the line by Hormipam.

In the 30th minute, Churchill again came close as a cross from the right by Robert Junior Primus hit Hormipam and fell for Abu Bakr, but the latter failed to score with an open goal in front of him.The home team was finally rewarded for its repeated attempts as a beautiful delivery by Israil Gurung, from a corner found the towering head of Abu Bakr, to give them the lead minutes before the half-time whistle. In the added time, Khalif Al Hassan’s shot from distance tested the Arrows keeper but the score stayed at 1-0 going into half-time.

The second half resumed with Churchill trying to slow down the pace of the game and Arrows looking to get an equaliser. In the 47th minute, Aman Chetri who came on a substitute for Harmanpreet Singh, created a chance from the right but the cross couldn’t be tapped in by Vikram. With 64 minutes on the clock, Churchill came on with two changes as they brought on Dawda Ceesay for Vinil Poojary and Richard Costa on Vangchhia. Arrows also made their second change by bringing on Telem Suranjit Singh for Manvir Singh, who was struggling in the second half.

The moment of glory for Arrows finally came in the 78th minute, when a low cross by Aman Chetri from the right was smashed into the back of the net by an onrushing Givson Singh. It was looking as if the match will end in a draw but a misunderstanding at the back between Junior Primus and James Kithan gave Arrows the lead, as substitute Telem Suranjit Singh capitalised on the offer and scored the second goal for the away side in the 90th minute.

Arrows didn’t back down till the end as Aman Chetri, who was proving to be the real impact substitute, showed immense individual skill and hit the goal post moments before the end of the game. Arrows finally held on to their lead and closed the match 2-1 to get their first win of the 2019-20 Hero I-League season.

AIFF PRESS RELEASE : Aizawl FC overcame a spirited young Indian Arrows to register their first win of the 13th Hero I-League season at the Tilak Maidan in Goa on Monday. The visitors from Mizoram rode on strikes from William Lalnunfela and Joe Zoherliana to snatch a dramatic victory in the stoppage time after Vikram Partap Singh had equalised for the hosts in the 81st minute.

Arrows head coach Shanmugam Venkatesh decided to field an unchanged starting eleven from his side that lost 0-1 at home to Gokulam Kerala in their season opener. Stanley Rozario, on the other hand, fielded a conventional 4-4-2 having made four changes from the side that lost to northeast rivals Neroca. Lalemruata started in goal ahead of Lalawmpuia, while new signing and Malian midfield Amadou Alou Sisokko also made the starting XI.

On a quest for their first win, both sides kicked-off the proceedings with an intent to press hard. The young Arrows, in the initial minutes, exhibited neat passes and structured movement. Aizawl, on the other hand, displayed fine defensive solidarity, with Juuko Kassaga being a towering figure throughout the game, constantly frustrating the likes of Vikram and Harmanpreet. In the 31st minute, a beautifully lobbed pass by Rochharzela was chested down by Abdoulaye Kanoute with exquisite control and the Malian forward had a crack on goal but was denied in spectacular fashion by Samik Mitra.

Minutes before the break, a miscued headed clearance by Ajin Tom fell to the feet of Kanoute but he squandered the golden opportunity to put Aizawl ahead, as his effort went wide off the mark.In the second half, the Arrows nearly found an opening when Vikram was seemingly brought down by Kassaga inside the box, but referee Rosario Fernandes waved away all appeals for a penalty.

However, it was Aizawl who took the lead in the 64th minute. In an attempt to clear a cross from Isak Vanlalruatfela, Saurabh Meher deflected the delivery to the path of William Lalnunfela, and the substitute made no mistake tapping it in.Venkatesh’s side displayed great character and started dictating the tempo of the game. They were duly rewarded when a beautifully plotted run by Vikram led to him being through on goal and he made no mistake in earning a well-deserved equaliser for the Arrows.

However, all of Indian Arrows’ good work was undone. With four minutes added on, Aizawl continued to overload the final third. Lalnunfela broke through on the right inside the Arrows’ box and delivered a measured cross which was met by a leaping Joe Zoherliana with his head, to seal a dramatic 2-1 win for Stanley Rozario’s side.

With the victory, Aizawl move to third place in the Hero I-League table with four points while Indian Arrows remain at the bottom with two losses from as many games. Arrows goalkeeper Samik Mitra was adjudged to be the Hero of the Match for his calm and confident display under the woodwork.Indian Arrows will now travel to Punjab to face former champions Punjab FC on December 16, 2019. Aizawl FC will host reigning champions Chennai City FC one day later (December 17, 2019) which is going to be the first-ever Hero I-league match played under floodlights in Aizawl.

AIFF PRESS RELEASE : Ugandan forward Henry Kisekka’s quality finish ensured title favourites Gokulam Kerala FC put it over a young, resilient and at times impressive Indian Arrows side by a solitary goal, in a 13th Hero I-League encounter at the Tilak Maidan in Goa. The Arrows gave the in-form Malabarians a mighty scare, particularly after the latter had to play the last 15 minutes with 10 men.

Gokulam coach Valera played both Kisekka and Trinidadian captain Marcus Joseph upfront while Arrows’ new coach Shanmugam Venkatesh also began with a regulation 4-4-2, with Vikram Partap Singh and Aman Chetri upfront. Gokulam started strongly and both Joseph and Kisekka missed a couple of sitters in the opening 20 minutes of the game. The Arrows, however, found their grooves by then and Vikram Partap was impressed with his surging runs down the right.

By the time the half ended, Gokulam were left wondering what they needed to do to break down the young Arrows as their goal was being manned more-than-ably by the young Samik Mitra, who also had a good confident half.After the breather, and quite against the run of play, Gokulam went ahead within five minutes of the resumption. A long ball found Kisekka on the top of the Arrows box on the right. The Ugandan got away from his markers in a flash and neatly placed the ball in the left-hand corner of the Arrows net.

The game continued to ebb and flow and then in the 76th minute, a wonderful Gokulam move resulted in a Joseph header deflecting off a defender and going in, but Samik brought off a brilliant save again to deny Joseph on the day.Five minutes later, Etienne brought down an onrushing Aman Chetri after the young forward had dispossessed him in-front of goal and was headed towards it. With just the keeper ahead, the referee had no option but to give marching orders to the burly Trinidadian centre-back.
