Two Thousand, One Hundred and Thirty Six, KMs, away from Bhubaneswar, lies the Chepuk Stadium of Chennai. Undoubtedly, that was the place , where Most of Chennai Locals and Bhubaneswar and all over India were looking at!! As Chennai Super Kings were taking on Mighty Rusell Power of KKR.
Seriously Speaking, At the same Slot Chennai City FC a Football Team from Chennai is also taking on FC Goa , an ISL team , was hardly a subject, people Knew and People were bothered to know. So AIFF´s failure in promoting this Global games continues , and clearly be be viewed from the Disappointing Empty Stands despite ENTRY WITHOUT TICKET
Now coming back to the Match, well It was completely a sad Note, to see The Dynamic Team of Chennai City FC, putting up sucha lack luster Performance.
The Fate of the match got Decided when AnandRaj committed a mistake in pulling down Jackiechad of FC Goa, resulting an Unwanted Penalty Awarded to FC Goa.The Tone was set, the Penalty Was scored by Feran Corominas, Drawing the First Blood for FC Goa making the Score 1-0.
Die Hard Chennai City FC fans must be finding a different attitude of their Favorite Team, as Akbar Nawas was extremely Negative in making the strategy at the current Night. None of their Attacks were even creating a Prominent Threat to the opponents . And as it was Expected Corominas Scored again at the 35th minute making the lead to 2-1 Now. Chennai looked as if They knew they wont be able to comeback. Their Dropping Shoulders were showing , as if they were playing for the sake of Play!!
Second Half Started, and Shockingly Chennai Team came a little earlier than expected. Some may say , Chennai were eager to make a Come back!! But as the Second Half started, the story was different. Till 66th Minute FC Goa were hardly allowing any move of Akbar´s Boys in their Comfort Zone until Brandon of Goa, Scored the 3rd Goa from a Long pass making the Score line to 3-0. It was the Final nail in the Coffin of Chennai City FC for the Semi Final Night.
Coach AKbar made few changes in the later half though putting Forward Ranjit in and Jesuraj out at the 72nd Minute but all failed to create any impact. There were a flurry of Yellow Booking for the teams due to few tackles, 75th and 91st minute. Then came the Final Whistle with 3 minutes of Injury time at the final half.
FC Goa were keen to play and this particular thing i should be appreciated as they wasted almost no time or their players were not in the mood to spoil the Momentum, They made the full of what opportunity came their way and Few Counter Attacks were really good at the 79th and 86th minute almost brought the 4th Good News to them.
In Conclusion, it the end of time of ILeague in Super Cup. FC Goa will face the winner between ATK vs Chennyin on 13th April. Though AIFF´s role has to be criticized in this as we see lack of futuristic thinking in progamming the competitions, lack of Planning, Marketing +Promotions at the lowest un- professional levels . The presence of Top Officials of AIFF were at the Super Cup stage was not noticed, as If they will give a Visit at the finals Like the "TOP-SHOW-STOPPERS" Its Really time to think that the adopted Sons i.e The Ileague Clubs are not alleging anything wrong and the Football Fraternity stand with them.
Empty Stands showcased Football suffering In India, I League Champions bow out of Super Cup
