Igor Angulo scored a stoppage-time winner to help FC Goa script a thrilling 2-1 win over
Jamshedpur FC in the Hero Indian Super League at Tilak Maidan, Vasco, on Wednesday.
Stephen Eze (33’) had put Jamshedpur ahead in the first half but Angulo’s brilliant brace
(64’, 90+4’) helped Goa claim all three points and end JFC’s six-match unbeaten run.
Both sides showed attacking intent from the word go but had just a single shot on target in the
first half as they failed to create clear-cut opportunities.
Brandon Fernandes had a chance to put his side ahead in the game early on when he was set
up by Jorge Ortiz on the left. The midfielder got the ball at the edge of the box and curled at the
far post, but only to see his attempt miss the top corner.
Jamshedpur broke the deadlock at the half-hour mark and the goal came from a set-piece.
Aitor Monroy put in a long ball at the far post and Eze managed to beat Mohammad Nawaz with
an outstretched right foot.
Goa squandered an opportunity when Angulo shot wide with only the keeper at his mercy.
Minutes later, Ortiz had a shot saved by Rehenesh. But Goa were not to be denied. The Gaurs
were awarded a penalty when James Donachie was brought down in the box by Alexandre Lima.
Angulo sent the keeper in the wrong direction to net his seventh goal of the competition.
