Late goals help Odisha FC to come from behind for a tantalizing win against Jamshedpur

Jamshedpur FC, founded in 2017 and owned by Tata Steel, is the winner of the Community Shield 2021-22.

Jamshedpur: Odisha FC defeated Jamshedpur FC earlier today in a high-scoring match at the JRD Sports Complex. The Juggernauts came from a 2-1 trail to win the game 3-2 at the final whistle.

The match began in a pumped mode. The Juggernauts and the Red Miners both targetted into scoring early on in the game. Jamshedpur FC shook the net with Nigerian Daniel Chukwu putting it the Odisha’s goalkeeper Amrinder Singh. They did not wait long to extend their lead. The Red Miners scored their second and final goal in the tenth minute through the Manipuri defender Boris Singh Thangjam.

Diego Mauricio started the goal account for the visitors, Odisha FC, in the seventeenth minute. Making good use of a pass from Raynier Fernandez, the Brazilian took a chance, shooting outside the box into the net past TP Rehenesh. The first half ended with the Juggernauts trailing behind the Red Miners by a goal. It was not until the 88th minute the net had some considerable action. The Mizo midfielder Isaac Vanmalsawma equalized the game and Diego Mauricio won it at stoppage time. Amrinder Singh, the record holder for most clean sheets in ISL stood as he failed in the last few minutes to save the game.

The Juggernaut climbed to the second spot in the table after the victory. They are on par with Chennaiyin FC and Bengaluru FC in terms of goal difference. Meanwhile, Jamshedpur is in the bottom four just below FC Goa who’s yet to play a game. Odisha will look forward to carrying the momentum they have created in the match against Mumbai City FC. The Juggernauts after the rebranding have failed to come up on a better scale. They expect nothing but a top-four finish this season. On the other hand, Jamshedpur being an extension team founded in 2017 has tasted success on numerous occasions as of now. They will watch the tapes and rectify their mistake as they boot up against former champions Mumbai City FC on the 22nd.
