ISL PRESS RELEASE : Goa struck in the fourth minute of added time to floor NorthEast United FC 2-1 for their first win at home in the Hero Indian Super League at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Fatorda-Goa, on Friday. FC Goa were down in the 49th minute after Seityasen Singh provided NorthEast United with the lead but equalised through Robin Singh in the 61st minute. Goa were then reduced to 10 men after Sahil Tavora was sent off but Romeo Fernandes handed the hosts full points with a dramatic late winner.
This was Goa’s first win at home after losing three matches in a row and gives them 10 points from 10 matches. Their inferior goal difference means they will continue to be at the bottom despite having the same number of points as Chennaiyin FC and NorthEast United.
FC Goa started with just two foreign players due to suspensions and injuries and the hosts were under pressure right from the start as NorthEast United sought to capitalise. NorthEast United had the first chance in the third minute itself when Katsumi Yusa floated a corner-kick but Nicolas Velez’s tap from close rnage was saved by goalkeeper Laxmikant Kattimani.
Katsumi then tried his luck with a long-range free-kick which Kattimani parried away to safety and then Rowlin Borges failed to keep his open header on target after Seityasen Singh had whipped in a perfect cross. FC Goa were relying largely on counter attacks but had their chances. Trindade Goncalves sent a ball through for Robin Singh in the 32nd minute but the India striker’s left-footed attempt was pushed away for a corner kick by NorthEast goalkeeper Subrata Paul.
NorthEast came close towards the end but only ended up hitting the crossbar twice. Gustavo Lazzaretti’s header first struck the crossbar from close range and then Velez also met with a similar fate when he had beaten Kattimani in the air. Despite defending well for the first half, FC Goa could have still found themselves down by a goal. The chance for NorthEast United fell quite unexpectedly when a long clearance from their own half caught the Goa deence off-guard but Velez’s lob over the onrushing goalkeeper was wide of the mark.
It was a different story in the second session as the Highlanders managed to take the lead in the 49th minute. A corner kick from Katsumi was headed away by Raju Gaikwad but only till Seityasen, who beat a defender and then took a powerful shot which deflected off Trindade into the Goa goal. Goa equalised in the 61st minute against the run of play. A long ball from Trindade saw Romeo race ahead and get the better of Holicharan Narzary inside the danger zone. He then kept his cool to lay the ball for Robin who finished with ease to draw level.
Goa, however, were again on the back foot in the 72nd minute when midfielder Sahil Tavora was sent off for a second yellow card, putting additional pressure on the hosts. NorthEast pressed hard for the winner but Goa had the last laugh after Romeo Fernandes gave finishing touches to a through ball from Robin Singh in the fourth minute of added time.

ISL PRESS RELEASE : Florent Malouda scored his first ever goal in the Hero Indian Super League and shaped Delhi Dynamos fluent 4-1 win over Chennaiyin FC at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Delhi, on Wednesday.
The former Chelsea midfielder and Delhi Dynamos captain was the most influential player as he scored two goals and created two more to help his team waltz to the top with 16 points from nine matches. Richard Gadze gave Delhi Dynamos the lead in 15th minute before Malouda made it 2-0 in 25th minute. Bernard Mendy provided brief hope for Chennaiyin FC in the 37th minute but Delhi were unstoppable in the second half with Kean Lewis making it 3-1 and Malouda himself completing the rout.
The 1-4 defeat will be among Marco Materazzi’s most embarrassing in the ISL and follows the 1-3 defeat in the opener against the same opposition at home. Delhi incidentally is coached by Gianluca Zambrotta who was Materazzi’s teammate when Italy won the World Cup in 2006.
The loss left Chennaiyin FC with plenty of work to do for the remaining matches, coming as it did after three successive draws. The defending champions are placed fifth with 10 points from eight matches. The opening goal happened in the 15th minute when Malouda won a ball from Siam Hangal from his own half and took a shot on goal which was saved by goalkeeper Karanjit Singh but Gadze was lurking around to pounce on the rebound, before he could be tackled by defender Mehrajuddin Wadoo.
Malouda made it 2-0 in the 25th minute after combining well with Gadze. The Ghanaian did well to wriggle past Brazilian defender Eli Sabia Filho and set it up for Malouda to finish with a well placed left-footer. Chennaiyin FC fought their way back into the game through their captain Bernard Mendy who scored a wonderful goal. He picked up a ball from Raphael Augusto, made a fine run escaping many Delhi players and then smashed it past the Delhi goalkeeper.
In the second session, Malouda continued dominating play and created Delhi’s third goal of the night. He did well to hold on to the ball inside the box and then passed it on to Lewis who did extremely well to shoot it past the Chennaiyin goalkeeper.
There was still one more goal left to be scored and it was Malouda who had his second of the night. Marcelinho's corner kick was headed towards Malouda by Badara Badji and the Frenchman made no mistake to turn it home.

ISL PRESS RELEASE : C K Vineeth scored a dramatic late winner against nine-man FC Goa in the ninth minute of added time for a 2-1 victory in a explosive Hero Indian Super League battle at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Kochi, on Wednesday.
Rafael Coelho provided FC Goa the lead in the ninth minute but the match took a dramatic turn early in second session when Goa captain Gregory Arnolin was sent off for handling the ball and Kerala Blasters won a penalty which Kervens Belfort converted to make it 1-1. In the 80th minute, Goa were reduced to nine man when Richarlyson was sent off for a double booking and despite Goa’s efforts to hold fort, Vineeth managed to register the winner in added time.
Interestingly, Vineeth had just returned to Kerala Blasters from Bengaluru FC after their AFC Cup engagements and played after joining the team in the afternoon. The first win for Kerala Blasters at home took them to fourth on the table with 12 points while leaving Goa at the bottom.
FC Goa chief coach Zico surprised many by using just five foreign players while leaving international players like Joffre Gonzalez and Trindade Goncalves on the bench. He continued with a strong defence that had three international players and appeared to be banking on them to shut out opposition. Kerala Blasters coach Steve Coppell made four changes, introducing goalkeeper Graham Stack, Pratik Chaudhuri, Mohammed Rafique and Michael Chopra.
Kerala Blasters, playing at home after four matches away, didn’t mind the strong FC Goa wall of defence but were stunned in the ninth minute when their own defence was caught napping. Robin Singh had won a free kick out on the left and Richarlyson floated it right inside the danger zone. There were several bodies looking at the delivery but Brazilian striker Rafael Coelho did well to jump the highest and head it past the legs of goalkeeper Graham Stack.
Kerala Blasters had their own chances to find the equaliser, particularly in the 17th minute when Rafique’s cross from the right was well measured but Belfort could not keep his header on target. Rafique was also guilty of not finishing off a move in the 24th minute when he received a nice through ball from Michael Chopra but Goa goalkeeper Laxmikant Kattimani did well to block the attempt with his legs.
The match took a dramatic twist in the second session when it was just 30 seconds old. FC Goa captain Gregory Arnolin was adjudged to have handled a deflected ball inside the danger area and the referee not just awarded a penalty but also sent off Arnolin. Belfort made no mistake with the penalty. With an additional player, Kerala Blasters enjoyed the advantage but could not surge ahead as Mohammed Rafi, Rafique and Josu Prieto all missed from close range.
Kerala were emboldened again when Goa were reduced to nine men in the 80th minute after Richarlyson was booked for the second time. Goa packed its defence but despite their best efforts, Kerala grabbed all points very late in the game with Vineeth scoring from a melee at the very end.

ISL PRESS RELEASE : Mumbai City FC condemned NorthEast United FC to their third consecutive defeat at home after registering a 1-0 result in Hero Indian Super League at Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium, Guwahati, on Saturday.
Mumbai City FC relied on an opportunistic goal from Jackichand Singh to notch a solitary goal victory that helped them regain their top spot. Mumbai City now have 15 points from nine matches, two more than Delhi Dynamos who have a match in hand. NorthEast United continue to be beyond the play-off spot after being left with 10 points from their eight matches played so far. Crucially, NorthEast United have lost their last three matches, all played at home in front of a packed stadium.
The hosts looked determined to wipe off bitter memories from their last two games. They were methodical in the first session but fell behind at the worst possible time due to a lapse from Brazilian goalkeeper Wellington de Lima Gomes in the 45th minute. The Brazilian appeared to be in control of a back pass when he dodged Sony Norde but the Brazilian was too overconfident with the ball in a dangerous position even as Norde raced from behind, snatched the ball and played it for Jackichand who only had to tap it inside an empty goal.
The setback just before the half-time whistle upset NorthEast’s rhythm and they could not stage a comeback in the second session. It was a different story in the opening 45 minutes when NorthEast United pressed hard for the advantage. Katsumi Yusa and Emiliano Alfaro were both combining well upfront and creating problems for the rival defenders. The two combined well in the 20th minute to create an opportunity for Holicharan Narzary but the local lad kicked the turf instead of the ball when he was in an encouraging position to score.
NorthEast’s only effort on goal in the first session was spectacularly saved by Mumbai City goalkeeper Albino Gomes. Katsumi Yusa did well to break free on the counter and found Alfaro who showed good skill to chest the ball and volley it towards goal only for the Mumbai goalkeeper to somehow push it away.
At the other end, Mumbai City marquee Diego Forlan was creating good chances. It was his through ball that allowed Jackichand the first look at goal in the sixth minute only to chip it wide past the onrushing goalkeeper. Forlan was also deadly with free-kicks and corner-kicks although Leo Costa’s header that sailed just wide was the closest that they got.
