FC Goa thrashed Jamshedpur FC by 3-0 in the Indian Super League on Thursday at Fatorda Stadium. Goals scored by Ortiz and Gonzalez give FC Goa a surge to the third spot in the points table.
FC Goa moved up to third spot in the ISL standings after registering a comprehensive 3-0 win over Jamshedpur FC at the Fatorda Stadium on Thursday. Jorge Ortiz Mendoza’s brace and a Ivan Garrido Gonzalez strike helped the Gaurs beat the Red Miners in match 58 of the 2020-21 ISL season.
Jamshedpur FC almost got an early goal. Aitor Monroy’s outswinging freekick into the box was aimed for Peter Hartley, who leapt the highest but couldn’t get the right connection, missing out on an opportunity. Jamshedpur saw another chance when Isaac cut in from the left and played a brilliant one-two with Nerijus Valskis, and launched a powerful shot at goal but goalkeeper Naveen Kumar made a lovely one-handed save.
FC Goa managing to keep a clean sheet was largely due to the efforts of Naveen Kumar. He made several saves throughout the game and was declared the Hero of The Match for his efforts. While the FC Goa attackers were doing their job, they were well backed up by their keeper Naveen, who was at his best to frustrate JFC strikers. Naveen denied his former teammate Jackichand Singh with a brilliant save to ensure a clean sheet.
Things got worse for JFC when Lima was sent off for his second yellow after a tackle on substitute Devendra Murgaonkar. Then, FC Goa scored their third through Ivan Gonzalez. The defender played a one-two with Angulo at the edge of the box and dinked the ball past Rehenesh, into the net.
