Jamshedpur becomes Shield City with historic win over Mariners
Ritwik Das helped Jamshedpur FC and himself gallop into the history books with a second-half winner to down ATK Mohun Bagan by a 1-0 margin and bag the League Shield for the first time creating history, in the Hero Indian Super League at the PJN Stadium in Fatorda on Monday.
Jamshedpur needed to draw to finish top of the table and clinch the League Shield, and the Red Miners rode Ritwik's goal in the 56th minute to ensure they finish the season on a high, capping off a stellar campaign under Owen Coyle. They finished with 43 points from 20 games, winning 13 games. ATKMB ended their league engagements having 37 in their kitty from 20 matches.
Jamshedpur will take on Kerala Blasters FC on March 11 in the first semi final while ATKMB will square off with Hyderabad FC the next day in the second last-four clash. Jamshedpur will get richer by Rs 3.5 Crore, the prize money for the League Shield.
ATKMB needed to win by a 2-0 victory to leapfrog Jamshedpur and second-placed Hyderabad FC, but it was not to be as Ritwik continued his purple patch with a sumptuous strike after Greg Stewart did all the spadework.
With stakes so high, it was expected to be a cagey affair and so it was with both teams eager to suss eachother out. The Mariners enjoyed more of the ball in the initial exchanges, coming closest to breaking the deadlock when a wild attempt from Tiri went wide. The busiest person on the field was the referee as he reached to his pocket thrice, flashing yellow cards in the first half and all to Jamshedpur players.
After change of ends, Stewart started bossing proceedings with his mazy runs and incisive passing, the industry bearing fruit four minutes to the hour mark when the Scotsman evaded two ATKMB shirts to cut into his right and beat his marker. Stewart went for goal himself but the ball came off an ATKMB player and fell to Ritwik who shot first time as the ball went past Amrinder Singh and into the back of the net.
ATKMB tried hard to forge a comeback but Jamshedpur held firm and eventually bagged three points, becoming the first side in the Hero ISL history to make seven wins in a row.
It was a new dawn for football in the steel city, boasting of one of India's biggest academies, Tata Football Academy which has produced a plethora of footballers over the years. Jamshedpur's renaissance under Coyle began last year when they finished a credible sixth, hinting at a playing style under the reputed English tactician and also a roadmap for the future. This year, Stewart was exceptional for Jamshedpur and so was Daniel Chima Chukwu whose move to the club in January proved to be a masterstroke.
It remains to be seen whether the newly-crowned League Shield winners go on to win the Hero ISL or not but it has already been an exceptional season for them.

Jamshedpur FC took a major step towards securing the Hero Indian Super League (ISL) Winner’s Shield after a dominant 5-1 victory over Odisha FC at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim. Daniel Chima Chukwu (23’, 26’) scored a first-half brace to take his season’s tally to nine goals before Paul Ramfangzauva (45+1’) pulled one back for the Kalinga Warriors. However, goals from Ritwik Das (54’), Jordan Murray (71’) and Ishan Pandita (87’) ensured a sixth consecutive win for Owen Coyle’s men.
With one match remaining between them and ATK Mohun Bagan, the Men of Steel have to avoid defeat to become winners of the league stage.
Odisha FC was dealt a major blow early in the game after losing Aridai Cabrera to injury. On the other end, Greg Stewart yet again played a major role in the first goal of the match as his free-kick hit the crossbar and fell to Daniel Chima Chukwu. The striker made no mistake in scoring with the rebound.
Odisha FC managed to make things worse for itself shortly after when Paul Ramfangzauva made a grim error in his own final third. Stealing the ball away from the midfielder, Chukwu added a second for his team. The Kalinga Warriors, with their backs against the wall, showed grit before the half ended. They managed to halve JFC’s lead thanks to the strike from Paul, who made amends for his earlier error.
The second half saw more zeal from Odisha FC as they tried to find the equaliser. However, it was the Men of Steel who found the back of the net through Ritwik Das. The winger combined brilliantly with Stewart, latched on a through ball, and rifled his shot into the bottom right corner.
The evening became harder for OFC with Jordan Murray getting on the scoresheet after coming on from the bench. To make matters worse for Kino Garcia and co, Jonathas was shown a second yellow card for unsportsmanlike behaviour, which saw him leave the field, reducing the team to 10-men. A late strike from Ishan Pandita saw JFC score their fifth goal and secure the win with style and dominance.
The next outing for Jamshedpur FC will see them involved in a highly anticipated top of the table clash with ATK Mohun Bagan in the last league match of the season at the PJN Stadium on Monday. On the other hand, Odisha FC’s season is over.

Jordan Murray came off the bench to score the winner as Jamshedpur FC showed character of the highest order to edge past NorthEast United 3-2 and stay one point away from a maiden semifinal berth, in the Hero Indian Super League at the PJN Stadium in Fatorda on Friday.
Seiminlen Doungel (35th) gave Jamshedpur the lead before Greg Stewart (59th) made it 2-0 in the second half. But in the space of two minutes, Laldanmawia Ralte (59th) and Marcelinho (67th) found the back of the net twice to level matters but in the end, Murray came on and scored for the third time for the Red Miners to underline their tag as one of the contenders for the League Shield and the title this season.
Jamshedpur now have 34 points from 17 matches and will need just one point to ensure a semifinal spot. They have a game in hand to league leaders Hyderabad who have played 18 matches and have 35 in their kitty. For NorthEast United, all is lost and a defeat means they are rooted to 10th place with 13 points from 19 games. They take on wooden spooners SC East Bengal in their final game of the season.
The match got off to an eventful start, Mirshad Michu colliding with Daniel Chima Chukwu inside the area for the Red Miners to appeal vehemently for a penalty. Jamshedpur, as they do more often than not, were getting the balls inside the box and using the width of the pitch to find Chukwu with the in-form Nigerian striker causing a few problems for NorthEast United defenders.
Owen Coyle's team were creating chance after chance and finally broke the deadlock just after the cooling break. From a Ricky Lallawmawma throw-in, Mobashir Rahman found an unmarked Doungel with a brilliant cross at the far post with the striker calmly heading home past Michu who should have done better at his near post.
Jamshedpur ended the half with a 1-0 lead but skipper Peter Hartley picked up a knock and had to be replaced after the change of ends. Narender Gahlot came in for him.For NorthEast United, Marco Sahanek made way for Marcelinho as Khalid Jamil looked keen on testing the Marcelinho-Brown combination to get them the equaliser. But it was more misery for the Highlanders as Jamshedpur doubled their advantage.
It was another Stewart special as the Scotsman took his goal tally to 10 this season, same as Igor Angulo, with a solo effort darting down the right flank after being set up by Mobashir to then cut inside and dink the ball past Michu with aplomb.
Just when it looked like Jamshedpur were on course for another victory, NorthEast United scored two goals in the space of one minute to turn the game on its head. First, Laldanmawia Ralte smashed home a rebound from a Marcelinho shot which was parried only as far as him by T.P. Rehenesh. In the next minute, Marcelinho was seen running at Jamshedpur defenders, the Brazilian then rounding Rehenesh to guide the ball into an empty net.
But Jamshedpur never gave up and Murray turned out to be the super sub, replacing Chima in the 75th minute and then turning in a dinked pass from Stewart in an acrobatic fashion with five minutes remaining on the clock.

Jamshedpur FC underlined their might with a brilliant performance as they breezed past Chennaiyin 4-1 to move to second place, in a lopsided Hero Indian Super League tie at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Sunday.
Ritwik Das (23rd), Boris Singh (33rd) and Daniel Chima Chukwu (40th) got on the scoresheet before Deepak Devrani scored an own goal (46th) as Jamshedpur made it three wins on the spin to rack up 31 points from 16 matches. They are one point behind league leaders Hyderabad FC with a game in hand. For Chennaiyin, Nerijus Valskis (62nd) scored a consolation goal against his former side. Chennaiyin are eighth in the table with 20 points from 17 matches and are all but out of a semifinal berth.
Jamshedpur bossed the game from the start with Boris warming Debjit Majumder's gloves early on with an effort from the right-wing. The Red Miners saw a lot more of the ball and that translated into a goal soon. Greg Stewart's corner was headed back by Peter Hartley as Chennaiyin failed to clear their lines. Ritwik was on hand and the in-form midfielder guided the ball on the rise into the back of the net past Debjit who tried hard to get his hands to it.
Three minutes after the cooling break, Boris made it 2-0 after Stewart darted inside the box to find him and it was an easy tap-in from close for the young right back. It rained goals in the first half for the Men of Steel and this time it was Chima again, the Nigerian striker scoring his fourth goal in five games for Owen Coyle's side. A poor goal kick from Debjit saw Eli Sabia ping the ball back in the attacking third for Chima to trap it nicely, drop his shoulder, turn to his left and tuck it into the left corner.
Chukwu got another golden opportunity to double his tally just before halftime when the excellent Stewart put a nice through ball for him but the striker hit it straight at the keeper. Just after the break, it was more misery for Chennaiyin as Devrani put the ball in his own net from a Stewart floater. There was some respite when Valskis turned in a long punt from Ariel Borysiuk which was initially saved by T.P. Rehenesh but only as far as Valskis who fired it in from close range.
Ishan Pandita replaced Chukwu as Coyle went for the kill. Hartley and Stewart were also taken off with Narender Gahlot and Alexandre Lima replacing them. It was scrappy in the final exchanges of the game but for Jamshedpur, the game was won in the first half itself.

Jamshedpur FC frittered a two-goal advantage but came back just in time to grab a late winner and move to third in the points table with a nerve-racking 3-2 victory over Mumbai City FC in a rescheduled Hero Indian Super League tie at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim on Thursday.
Greg Stewart (9th) opened the floodgates early on to give Jamshedpur the lead with Ritwik Das (30th) doubling the margin. In the second half, Rahul Bheke (57th) pulled one back for Mumbai before Igor Angulo missed a penalty but that didn't matter as Diego Mauricio converted from the spot in the 86th minute to leave the game on a knife's edge. Stewart then converted a penalty in added time to seal the issue.
Jamshedpur now have 28 points from 15 games, one adrift of leaders Hyderabad FC but with a game in hand. ATK Mohun Bagan, placed second, are also on 29 points with 15 matches, the same as Jamshedpur. Mumbai remain fifth with 25 points from 16 matches.
Jamshedpur started on the front foot and got their reward after just nine minutes. A brilliant piece of teamwork saw Jitendra Singh pass the ball to Boris Singh just outside the box with the latter relaying it to Ritwik Das who back-flicked it to an unmarked Greg Stewart. The Scottish attacking midfielder slammed home from close to make it three goals in two games as Owen Coyle's team showed early intent.
Mumbai were dealt another blow when midfield linchpin Ahmed Jahouh had to be taken off after he was hit on the shoe. Vinit Rai replaced him. At the half-hour mark, Jamshedpur double their lead. Ritwik was on target this time, having to tap in the easiest of finishes with no one tracking him down after Daniel Chima Chukwu acrobatically sent in a low cross from the edge of the byline.
Jamshedpur went into the break with a 2-0 lead with Mumbai snapping at their heels. In the second period, Bheke halved the margin by making the most of the ball coming at his feet after Igor Angulo's attempt was saved by Rehenesh.
Mumbai kept putting pressure on Jamshedpur and it paid off when Peter Hartley fouled Mourtada Fall inside the area and the referee pointed to the spot. Angulo's effort though was saved by Rehenesh who got up to make another save showing brilliant reflexes.
Angulo was replaced by Diego Mauricio in the 89th minute and the Brazilian striker made an immediate impact, being fouled by Hartley inside the box. Mauricio stepped up and slotted the ball in the centre to make it 2-2 and with four minutes remaining in the game, it was set for an end-to-end encounter.
It was heartbreak in the end for Mumbai after the ball hit Vignesh Dakshinamurthy's arm for the third penalty of the game. Stewart sent the keeper the wrong way to hand Jamshedpur the much-needed win and all three points.

Bengaluru FC made it three wins on the spin to move to the third spot, riding a come-from-behind 3-1 victory over Jamshedpur FC in the Hero Indian Super League at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim here on Saturday.
Daniel Chima Chukwu had given Jamshedpur the lead inside the first minute but Bengaluru made a roaring comeback in the second half, Cleiton Silva (62nd, 90th) scoring twice on either side of Sunil Chhetri's equaliser in the 55th minute. Chhetri scored his 49th goal, equalling Hyderabad FC's Bart Ogbeche who became the all-time highest scorer of the Hero ISL the other day with 49 strikes as Bengaluru stretched their unbeaten run to eight games. Bengaluru now have 23 points from 15 games, same as Kerala Blasters who are second due to better goal difference.
Jamshedpur dropped to fourth with the loss with 22 points from 13 matches. Jamshedpur were in the ascendancy in the very first minute of the game, Chima getting on the scoresheet for the second consecutive game since joining the Men of Steel.
Alexandre Lima carried the ball through the heart of the pitch and passed to Borish Singh who lay it up for Chima who got in between Alan Costa and Roshan Naorem to first trap the ball and then fire it into the roof of the net.
Pegged back so early on, Bengaluru tried hard to equalise but Jamshedpur, missing the services of skipper Peter Hartley due to suspension, sat back and defended well as a unit. The Blues' best chance of the half fell to Chhetri who could not turn in a brilliant Roshan corner despite having to head into an empty net after keeper T.P. Rehenesh committed early. The skipper dragged his header wide and had his hand on his head as his team went into the break trailing by that solitary goal.
The Marco Pezzaiuoli-coached team came out all guns blazing in the second period and Chhetri atoned for his miss just before halftime to fire home from inside the box after a long throw from Parag Shrivas saw the ball come off Bruno Ramires' legs and into the path of the veteran marksman.
In the next seven minutes, Bengaluru doubled their lead. The hard-working Naorem swung in a superb corner for Silva to nod in past an outstretched Jitendra Singh and into the back of the net. Bengaluru were all over Jamshedpur after taking the lead, Silva and Chhetri combining to almost set Udanta Singh in the clear only for Ricky Lallawmawma to intercept.
Silva doubled his tally in injury time, making the most of Narender Gahlot's botched clearance from a throw-in to beat a defender and fire into the far post from a tight angle. Jamshedpur had their chances but Chukwu and Stewart were denied from the goal line as it was Bengaluru's day in office.

Jamshedpur FC inflicted a huge blow to FC Goa’s aspirations for a semi-final berth with a 1-0 win over the Gaurs in the 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League (ISL). The win takes Owen Coyle’s men to second place in the league table but keeps Derrick Pereira’s men stuck at ninth place with four games without a win.
The solitary goal came through Daniel Chima Chukwu (49’) who scored on his first outing for the Men of Steel after signing for them in the January transfer window.
The match had an eventful start with Daniel Chukwu sending his left-footed shot narrowly wide off the mark. On the other end, Ivan Gonzalez hit the underside of the crossbar with a header. The rebound fell to Edu Bedia whose low shot was brilliantly saved by TP Rehenesh. The Gaurs threw more subsequent attacks at the JFC defense but to no avail.
The first half was very feisty to say the least, which led to three yellow cards being handed out to Alex Lima, Anwar Ali and Daniel Chukwu respectively. The injuries and stoppages led to four minutes of added time but neither team managed to break through the defenses and score the opening goal.
The second half started with JFC pushing for a goal and they got one through the debutant Chukwu whose volley was too powerful for Naveen Kumar. The custodian got both hands on the ball but could not prevent it from slipping into the back of the net.
Ali came close to equalizing for the Gaurs past the hour mark but the ball did not go in after it hit the crossbar for the second time. At the stroke of the 80th minute, Airan Cabrera struck the crossbar for the third time for FCG with a left-foot volley.
Derrick Pereira made a host of changes in order to change the course of the match. However, despite creating a plethora of chances, the equalizer eluded FCG as Coyle’s men defended their lead with a collective force and secured the three points.
FC Goa will next face an ambitious Odisha FC at the Athletic Stadium on Tuesday while Jamshedpur FC awaits the challenge of an in-form Bengaluru FC on Saturday at the same venue.

A resilient performance from Jamshedpur FC saw them win 1-0 against SC East Bengal in the 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League 2021-22 at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim. The result allowed Owen Coyle’s men to leapfrog the competition and reach first place in the points table with 19 points.
Ishan Pandita (88’) was the difference-maker after scoring another late goal with a towering header to secure three points for Jamshedpur FC.
The early exchanges saw both teams create half chances as there was little to separate the teams. Arindam Bhattacharja was called into action in the 27th minute after Murray found space behind the defensive line. The goalkeeper did well to leave the box and make the clearance. No major scoring chances fell to either team until the half-hour mark.
Boris Singh had a good chance to open the scoring in the final stages of the first half. The winger found himself unmarked inside the box but his header was disappointing and went way above the crossbar. Despite dominating the possession and creating more attacking opportunities, JFC was not able to score as both teams went into the break without scoring
The Men of Steel started the second half on the front foot, with Jordan Murray hitting the crossbar with a looping header. Influential defender Adil Khan had to be replaced just before the hour mark by Darren Sidoel due to an injury. Murray then had another shot saved by Arindam who parried the ball away with a strong right hand.
The last 15-minutes saw JFC attack with more intensity. Murray was again on target in the 85th minute but his right-footed shot lacked the power to beat the SCEB custodian. However, it was Ishan Pandita yet again who scored a late goal to break SCEB hearts. The striker scored with a precise header after meeting with Greg Stewart’s corner. Pandita’s goal was enough to secure the win and propel JFC to the top of the league table.
Jamshedpur FC will next face high-flying Hyderabad FC at the Athletic Stadium on Monday. On the other hand, SC East Bengal meets Derrick Pereira’s FC Goa at the same venue on Wednesday.

An injury-time winner from Ishan Pandita sees Jamshedpur FC secure a 3-2 win over NorthEast United in the 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League 2021-22 at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim. The result elevates Owen Coyle’s men to third place in the league table, level on points with second-placed Mumbai City FC and leaders Hyderabad FC.
Deshorn Brown (4’) broke the deadlock with an early strike until Jordan Murray (44’) levelled the score with a header. Boris Singh (56’) then sent JFC into the lead with his first-ever goal in the ISL. Brown (90+1’) looked to have secured a draw with a late goal until Ishan Pandita (90+3’) scored the winner deep into injury time.
The match began with the Highlanders grabbing a hold on the proceedings. Deshorn Brown scored his fifth goal of the campaign inside the first five minutes. The striker was fed by Suhair Vadakkepeedika with a penetrating pass and found himself in a one-on-one situation with the goalkeeper. He calmly placed his right-footed shot in the bottom left corner for the early breakthrough goal. A few minutes later, Jordan Murray missed an open goal with a diving header, thus wasting a great chance to score the equalizer.
A few moments later, calls for a penalty were denied by the referee when Provat Lakra seemingly tripped Greg Stewart inside the box. The forward had another chance to score the equalizer but his left-footed shot was parried away by Mirshad Michu. However, the goal finally came from Jordan Murray who leapt the highest to connect with Stewart’s free-kick and head the ball inside the net in the closing stages of the first half.
The Men of Steel carried their momentum from the first half into the second. Within three seconds of the restart, Murray’s shot from the right corner of the box required Michu’s intervention who made a strong save. JFC finally took the lead five minutes before the hour mark following a goal from Boris Singh. The winger latched on to a cut-back from Murray and made no mistake in placing the ball inside an empty goal with his right foot.
Just as five minutes were added for stoppages, Brown scored his second after weaving past the goalkeeper and scoring with immense composure. A couple of minutes later, Ishan Pandita scored the winner, acting as the super-sub yet again. The striker made no mistake in finishing from close range and secured three vital points for his team.

Chennaiyin FC got back to winning ways after a narrow 1-0 win over Jamshedpur FC in the 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim. The Men of Steel were squeezed out of the first four positions after Kerala Blasters FC earned a point against FC Goa earlier in the evening. Post this result, they slip to sixth place as Bozidar Bandovic’s men hand them their second loss of the campaign.
Lukasz Gikiewicz (31’) opened the scoring with his first shot on target and eventually, it was enough to separate the teams.
Narender Gahlot was shown the yellow card at the 20th-minute mark following a nervy start by both teams. Mirlan Murzaev sent his attempt above the goal from the subsequent long-range free-kick. A few minutes later, Lukasz Gikiewicz broke the deadlock with CFC’s first shot on target at the half-hour mark. The striker comfortably headed a cross from Vladimir Koman past the goalkeeper from inside the box. He was left unmarked by the JFC defenders and the striker from Poland made no mistake with his header.
Greg Stewart had a brilliant opportunity just before the halftime whistle to score the equaliser but he uncharacteristically aired his shot from the edge of the penalty area. The Marina Machans held on to their lead before heading into the break at halftime.
Ritwik Das, the substitute, also took an attempt six minutes post the restart but he sliced his shot which went wayward in the end. Ricky Lallawmawma then became the second JFC player to receive a yellow card for a poorly timed challenge. Shortly after, Germanpreet Singh had a superb chance to increase the lead at the hour mark. However, his shot from the edge of the box post a counter-attack was blocked by a JFC defender. In the 72nd minute, Debjit Majumder got down quickly to keep Stewart’s attempt at bay after the forward weaved past multiple defenders to release a left-footed shot.
Ishan Pandita was one of the substitutes sent in by Owen Coyle and the striker miscued a sensational opportunity to score the equaliser. A well-placed low cross from Murray found Pandita 12-yards away from the target but his first-time right-footed shot did not connect with the ball which rolled wide off the mark to the shock of all JFC players. Chennaiyin FC kept their lead intact in a professional display and repelled everything thrown at them by the Jamshedpur FC forwards.

Jamshedpur FC could not crown Greg Stewart's special goal with a victory as they had to share the spoils with Kerala Blasters in a 1-1 draw in the Hero Indian Super League at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Sunday.
Stewart scored a stunning goal from a free kick in the 14th minute but his strike was cancelled out by Sahal Abdul Samad who scored a third successive goal in the 27th minute. Both teams looked for the winning goal but had to be content with a point in the end.
The result means Kerala Blasters are now third in the table with 13 points from eight matches while Jamshedpur are second, having the same number of points from eight games but ahead on goal scored.
Stewart showed early signs of continuing his purple patch with a wonderful first touch to receive a ball on the edge of the box but the Scottish forward's attempt went wide of goal. Minutes later, the 31-year old scored an incredible goal from a free-kick after Boris Singh was hacked down by Harmanjot Khabra on the inside left channel.
At halftime, both teams went into the break with the scores level. Soon after the restart, Stewart picked up a yellow card for a challenge on Khabra and at the other end Vazquez's delicious chip came off the crossbar after Hartley uncharacteristically failed to clear the ball.
Both sides upped the ante and it was end to end stuff in the last half hour or so. Vazquez forced Rehenesh into action with a low shot that went out for a corner while Jitendra Singh's volley from outside the box took a deflection and went straight to the keeper. There were chances for both teams in the dying minutes but it ended as it started.

Jamshedpur FC and Bengaluru FC were involved in a game that had everything except a goal. The two sides played out an engaging goalless stalemate in the 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League (ISL) at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim on Monday.
Jamshedpur moved to the second spot on the table with 12 points but would rue their missed opportunity to close the gap on leaders Mumbai City. Bengaluru now have two draws in a row and their first clean sheet but languish at second-last with just 6 points.
Sunil Chhetri was named on the bench for the second game in a row. Jamshedpur were dealt a major blow even before the first whistle was blown. Lithuanian striker Nerijus Valskis pulled up with an injury during the pre-match warm up with Jordan Murray replacing him up top.
Udanta Singh had Jamshedpur in trouble early on. First, the India international failed to tap in from Ajith Kamaraj's cross and then minutes later, he ran past the defence to square the ball into the box, only to be let down by his strikers, who failed to reach on time.
Brazilian midfielder Alex Lima had other plans at the opposite end. The Bengaluru defence failed to close down Lima as he swiveled past three men to take aim at goal. However, his attempt went wide.
Both goalkeepers were called into action multiple times in the first half. Hat-trick hero from last week, Greg Stewart crossed in a ball towards Murray but Gurpreet Singh Sandhu put in a critical clearance. Rehenesh TP's effort was more spectacular. Ashique Kuruniyan spewed in a ball from the left perfectly for Cleiton Silva, whose header was parried off brilliantly.
The change of ends brought more drama for the neutral as both team were handicapped by their own profligacy. Greg Stewart and Lima continued to be the focal points of attack for the Men of Steel but it was effective defending that kept BFC out of trouble.
Prince Ibarra had just a couple of shots, that too off target but Cleiton, who looked promising was substituted off for Sunil Chhetri with quarter of an hour to go with Marco Pezzauioli looking for inspiration from the India captain.
Chhetri almost pulled off a blinding winner in the 83rd minute. Ashique whipped in a long freekick that was headed goalwards by Chhetri. A slight deflection off Alan Costa and the ball bounced off the crossbar, summing up the evening of some evenly contested football.

Greg Stewart sharpened his pedigree as one of the best players in the league this season with a spectacular first-half hattrick as Jamshedpur FC rode his heroics to breeze past Odisha FC and climb to second in the points table, in the Hero Indian Super League 2021-22 season at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Tuesday.
Stewart scored three very different yet stunning goals in the 4th, 21st and 35th minutes to crown Peter Hartley's effort in the 3rd minute as the 'away' side made Odisha look ordinary despite this being their best start to the season.
The result means Jamshedpur leapfrog from fifth to second in the points table with 11 points from six games. Odisha are in fourth position having nine points from five games. Odisha were rocked inside the first four minutes. Peter Hartley got The Men of Steel going with the first goal, turning in a delightful Stewart corner into the right bottom corner, out jumping Vinit Rai after winning the flag-kick himself.
One minute later, Stewart made it 2-0 pouncing on a mistake from the Odisha defence and outfoxing Paul Ramfangzuava to then shimmy his way past another defender and let loose a right-footed effort that cannoned past Kamaljit Singh and into the top right corner.
The 31-year old Stewart, who won the Scottish Premiership with Rangers before his move to Jamshedpur, unleashed a stunning free-kick from 30 yards that curled in a left-footer from around the wall to bend in past a diving Kamaljit.
Stewart was in the form of his life, netting his hattrick in the 35th minute after he strode past a few defenders and fired past the keeper at the far post. The only downside in a perfect half for Owen Coyle's men was the injury to Alexandre Lima who beat a charging defender to shoot straight at the keeper but injured himself in the process.
The second half could not match up to the sizzling first period as Odisha players tried to create chances and open their goal account and narrow down the margin.
The Kiko Ramirez-coached side rang in the change bringing the likes of Nikhil Raj and Liridon Krasniqi to change their fortunes but in the end, it proved to be a horror night for them and one that found them wanting in defence and lack of ideas when struck by a Greg Stewart blitzkrieg.

Cassio Gabriel (3rd), Bipin Singh (17th) Igor Angulo (24th) and substitute Ygor Catatau (70th) were on the scoresheet for Mumbai who now are four points clear at the top with 12 points from five matches. Komal Thatal (48th) and Eli Sabia (55th) found the back of the net for Jamshedpur who remain in second place, having eight points from five games.
It was the home team all the way from the first whistle, nodding ahead in the third minute through the extremely skilful Gabriel.Ahmed Jahouh's short corner was played in the path of Gabriel just outside the box, with the Brazilian curling the ball home from the edge of the box.
There was no stopping Mumbai though as the defending champions doubled their lead in the 17th minute. A good spell of passing football set Gabriel free on the right side. The 29-year old beat Eli Sabia with pace to enter the box, sending across a delectable cross for an unmarked Bipin to tap in. Seven minutes later, Mumbai made it 3-0 sending a strong message to the other teams in the league that their shock defeat to Hyderabad FC was probably a one-off.
This time it was all about Angulo's brilliance although Gabriel was in the forefront again with a perfectly weighted pass. Angulo, 37, left Eli Sabia for dead with his first touch to turn and rifle home a scorching left-footer that whizzed past T.P. Rehenesh. The Islander lead by a mammoth 3-0 margin at halftime.
Jamshedpur turned on the heat after the break, scoring twice in the space of seven minutes. First, Stewart found Thatal in space with the latter cutting into his right and unleashing a powerful shot that deflected off a defender to wrong-foot Mohammad Nawaz under the Mumbai City FC bar.
Eli Sabia atoned for his mistakes in the first period with a second, a few minutes later when the 33-year old leapt high to nod into an empty net, making the most of a defensive error from Bheke.Angulo made way for Catatau in the 68th minute and the Brazilian made an instant impact with a smashing finish from close.

In a gripping game of two halves, Jamshedpur FC were held by Hyderabad FC in a 1-1 draw in the 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League (ISL) at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim on Thursday.
Greg Stewart (41') scored a goal of the highest order for the Red Miners while Bartholomew Ogbeche (56') equalised in the second half. Both sides failed to enter into the top four spots as Jamshedpur with 5 points are placed 5th as Hyderabad follow with 4 points.
Eli Sabia was handed the Jamshedpur FC armband for the first time as regular captain Peter Hartley started from the bench. Manolo Marquez fielded the same XI that won against Mumbai City over the weekend.
The first half could almost be dubbed as the Greg Stewart-show. While he would have just the single goal to show for it, the Scot kept Hyderabad defenders guessing every time he went near the box.
In the 20th minute, had the ball gone in, it could have easily been a contender for the goal of the tournament. Stewart picked up the ball from midfield off Hitesh Sharma, sprinted all the way into the box and left Juanan for dead, only to be denied by the upright.
Earlier, Juanan had a chance himself when his header went astray. Valskis too had a sniff but played second fiddle to Stewart, who found his first ISL goal a few minutes before the break.
A quick throw-in from the left saw Stewart receive the ball and cut past four defenders into the box. The former Rangers man awe-inspiringly then spewed in a curer that nestled into the top far corner of the goal.
Change of ends, it took only ten-odd minutes for the Nizams to draw level. Smart build-up play at the edge of the box and Ogbeche finished it off towards the bottom-right corner after a brilliant one-two with captain Joao Victor.
There was some gritty football on display as both teams pressed hard for the lead. Valskis, in the few chances he got remained profligate while Rehenesh's steely resolve under the post kept Hyderabad frustrated.

Coming on the back of a draw against SC East Bengal, Jamshedpur FC took the early initiative of jumping on top of the table after dominating FC Goa for a 3-1 win in a 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League (ISL) match at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim on Friday.
Nerijus Valskis (51', 61') was the hero of the match as he remained one shy of a perfect hat-trick, managing to first drive the ball with his left foot and then score via a header. Jordan Murray (80') piled the third right after coming off the bench. Airan Cabrera though denied the Men of Steel a clean sheet with a neat finish to register a goal in the 86th minute.
Juan Ferrando rung in the changes after a heavy opening weekend defeat. Jorge Ortiz was brought in as Devendra Murgaonkar led the line. Airam Cabrera was relegated to the bench. Reliance Foundation Young Champs Academy graduate Muhammed Nemil, who had recovered from his injury, was included in the matchday squad for the very first time.
Fresh off winning the Scottish Premiership with Rangers under Steven Gerrard, Greg Stewart made his first start on Indian soil. Komal Thatal found a place on the wing as Eli Sabia was dropped. Thatal was rather brilliant after kickoff. The Sikkim-born first found Jitendra inside the box with some help from Stewart. Soon, he tested the opposition defenders with a dangerous cross, all within the first quarter of an hour.
While Goa enjoyed ball possession, Jamshedpur had the better chances through set pieces. Playing in a flat 4-4-2, Jamshedpur ensured that Goa could not find empty spaces to launch pressing attacks. With five minutes to go in the first half, Len Doungel failed to punish his former side. The winger was played through after a mispass. He first shot onto Dheeraj and subsequently skied the rebound.
Valskis too tried his luck but Dheeraj caught the ball after Glan Martins lost possession of the ball in midfield.Right after the break, FC Goa threatened Jamshedpur with a freekick but Rehenesh kept it at bay as Alberto Noguera was denied. At the other end, Valskis made his long-ranger count and snapped his 10-game goalless run with a delectable left-footed strike to break the deadlock.
With the monkey off the back, Valskis doubled his tally in under ten minutes. Greg Stewart's curling freekick was met by the Lithuanian, who rose the highest inside the box and nodded home. Jordan Murray barely was on the pitch when he added the third for the Red Miners, with his first touch in the game.
Stewart proved to be a menace with his quality humbling the FC Goa midfield. While Ferrando kept on refreshing the legs on the pitch, there was no real attempt at finding a breakthrough as the Gaurs reeled off early season blues. While they did score a solitary goal, the match was nothing but a complete dominance by Jamshedpur over FC Goa. FC Goa would look towards the match against NorthEast to put an end to their defeats while Jamshedpur FC face Hyderabad FC next.
