Chennaiyin FC cruise into the finals of the ISL beating FC Goa 3-0( 4-1 Aggregate)
Jeje scored a brilliant double in Chennaiyin FC´s 3-0 victory (4-1 in aggregate) over FC Goa in the second leg semifinal clash at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Chennai and confirm their place in the finals for the second time in ISL history.
FC Goa were completely outclassed and outmuscled in every aspect of today´s game although the Gaurs dominated the first quarter of the match.
Jeje found the opening goal in the 26th minute through his clean header on Gregory Nelson´s left-wing cross. Three minutes later Dhanapal Ganesh added the second for The Super Machans again on Gregory Nelson´s cross.
The two quick goals completely changed the demeanor of the hosts as they grew in confidence. The Gaurs gradually lost the grip on the game as they couldn´t manage to stand firm against the Chennaiyin attack and provide any kind of resistance unlike the early minutes of the match.
Jeje scored his second just at the end of regulation time and sealed the deal for Super Machans making the place in finals of the Indian Super League for the second time in four seasons.
The Club Award is taken by Chennaiyin FC for winning this game. The Swift Limitless Player of the Match is Jeje Lalpekhlua for his overall performance today. While the Winning Pass of the Match is awarded to Gregory Nelson for his assist to Jeje´s goal, the Fittest Player of Match is Ahmed Jahouh.
