ISL PRESS RELEASE : Kerala Blasters ended their 10-match winless run in the Hero Indian Super League with a convincing 5-1 demolition of Hyderabad FC at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium here on Sunday.Bartholomew Ogbeche (33', 75') scored twice in a contest that saw the visitors score the opener through Bobo (14'). Vlatko Drobarov (39'), Raphael Messi Bouli (45') and Seityasen Singh (59') also managed to add to the hosts' dominant display.

It was the first time that the Kochi-based side scored five goals in an ISL game and the result takes them to the seventh spot in the table while Hyderabad continue at the bottom. After a lacklustre start to the game in which the teams struggled to create chances, Hyderabad FC took the lead using a transition from midfield to good effect in the 14th minute. Bobo nicked the ball in the centre, passed to Abhishek Halder who in turn released Marcelinho into plenty of space down the left flank. The Brazilian forward crossed the ball low across the face of the goal for Bobo who slipped in between the centre-backs to tap it into the net.

With a midfield of Moustapha Gning and Jeakson Singh, Kerala struggled to make an impact in the attacking third initially after going behind. The hosts, however, managed to rally back into the game after the 30-minute mark.Gianni Zuiverloon marked his return to the first team following an injury layoff with a brilliant through-ball to split the defence. Ogbeche ran into space, skipped past an onrushing Laxmikant Kattimani and slotted home.

Kerala then completed the first-half comeback in the 39th minute using a clever set-piece routine. From a free-kick on the left flank, Jessel Carneiro played the ball to Jeakson who in turn released Seityasen Singh into space. The Indian winger fired a cross towards the far post where Vlatko Drobarov guided the ball into the net.

The tides turned as the game neared half-time with Kerala well on top and turning out to be the better side. Messi brought down a long ball from the deep, played it wide for Halicharan Narzary who crossed and found the striker's well-timed run into the box. With the goal gaping, the Cameroonian converted from close-range.

Conceding three goals in the space of twelve minutes had an effect on Hyderabad as they struggled to string passes together after the restart. The likes of Marcelinho and Marko Stankovic were unable to get their team back into the game and had a limited role to play.Things turned from bad to worse for the visitors when Carneiro found Seityasen free on the right in the 59th minute. The winger dribbled forward towards the edge of the box and with no options to pass, he fired a powerful shot towards goal that found a way past Kattimani's gloves.

With Hyderabad looking clueless at both ends of the pitch, Messi dribbled into the box from the right flank, outfoxed his marker Matthew Kilgallon and squared the ball for an unmarked Ogbeche in the 75th minute. The striker hit home from close-range as Kerala picked up a much-needed victory.

ISL PRESS RELEASE : Modou Sougou’s brace helped 10-man Mumbai City FC to a 2-1 win over Hyderabad FC in a Hero Indian Super League tie at the at the Mumbai Football Arena on Sunday. Bobo did get on the score-sheet late in the game for the visitors, but Hyderabad still suffered their seventh defeat of the season. The win takes Mumbai to the fourth spot, level on points with defending champions Bengaluru FC with 16 points. Hyderabad remain rooted to the bottom with a mere five points.

The very first minute saw Diego Carlos cut inside from the left and his right footed shot was just about parried away by Kamaljit Singh. At the other end, Bobo got into the action after Marcelinho did well to find him inside the box. However, the Brazilian’s shot hit the side-netting. The goal came in the sixth minute as Sougou opened his account for Mumbai. Carlos got behind the Hyderabad defence and pulled it back for Sougou who placed beyond the reach of Kamaljit to make it 1-0.

Four minutes later, Serge Keryvn found Carlos on the left and the winger’s shot was just about saved by the Hyderabad custodian. Bobo was involved in the thick of action again when he headed wide under pressure from Mato Grgic as he met a cross from Ashish Rai. Midway into the half, Bobo, who was unmarked inside the box, headed it wide, much to the disappointment of Phil Brown and co.

It took a double save from Rai on the goal-line to keep the scoreline at 1-0 in the 41st minute. A corner-kick was met by Grgic at the far post and his effort was cleared by Rai. The ball found its way to Sougou whose shot too was kept out by the former Indian Arrows defender after Kamaljit was beaten all ends up.

Brown introduced Shankar Sampingiraj for Rohit to add more creativity and bite to his midfield in the second half. Hyderabad could have got the equalizer soon after when, from a set-piece, Adil’s header came off the far post and off the rebound, Bobo’s attempt was inadvertently.blocked by fellow team-mate Kilgallon.

In the 67th minute, Marcelinho was denied by the woodwork as the Brazilian broke free on the left and his venomous shot struck the far post. Mumbai suffered a massive blow a minute later when Golui stopped Marcelinho in his tracks and picked up his second booking of the evening. It were Mumbai, however, who doubled their lead. Carlos found Sougou in space and the Senegalese lobbed his effort over Kamaljit who was off his line to put Mumbai in a commanding position.

Bobo did pull one back to score his fourth goal of the campaign as he got on the end of a cross from Rai to beat Amrinder to make it 2-1. Hyderabad created a few half chances with Robin having the best opportunity, but he lashed his effort into the stands as Mumbai stood firm and held on for their third consecutive win.

Hyderabad FC failed to hold on for a rare win as lucky ATK slogged to a 2-2 draw at the GMC Balayogi Athletic Stadium on Saturday. Roy Krishna (15’ penalty) and Bobo (39’) scored a goal each in the first half. Bobo scored his second of the evening in the 85th minute with a brilliant header for Hyderabad. Krishna, however, scored his eighth of the season with a late strike in the 90th minute to win a point for his side. Phil Brown started with the attacking trio of Nestor Gordillo, Marcelinho and Bobo as they searched for their second win in the Hero Indian Super League. Antonio Habas chose to drop Michael Soosairaj and Prabir Das and handed a start to Jobby Justin and Sumit Rathi as the two wingbacks.

The first chance came in the seventh minute when Bobo found Nestor and the Spaniard’s shot from inside the box missed the near post by a few inches.Javier Hernandez’s cross from the left was deemed to have been handled by Ashish Rai as the referee pointed to the spot. Krishna struck from the ensuing penalty as the visitors took the lead against the run of play. Hyderabad should have equalised soon after as Marcelinho’s corner-kick only needed a nudge after Arindam Bhattacharya came off his line and missed the flight of the ball.

They had another chance a few minutes later when Rohit Kumar, Adil Khan and Marcelinho combined with the Brazilian’s final shot missing the target. Hyderabad equalised in the 38th minute when Nestor sent in a cross from the left which was met by Bobo who headed it home despite being under pressure from Salam Ranjan and Pritam Kotal. ATK could have taken the lead again as Jobby’s header sailed over the bar from a Hernandez free-kick. Krishna and Williams combined a few minutes later with the latter being fed by a quality cross. However, an important interception by Adil Khan denied Williams as Hyderabad survived a scare.

Both coaches made a couple of changes as they searched for the second goal with Mohammad Yasir and Robin Singh coming in for the home side, while Prabir Das and Soosairaj were thrown into the mix for the visitors. The second goal for Hyderabad came in the 85th minute. Marcelinho’s cross saw Bobo glance it to the far post to beat Bhattacharya in goal to make it 2-1 for the home team. However, ATK found a way back thanks to an error by Kamajit. The goalkeeper’s clearance went straight to Hernandez who headed it onto the path of Krishna. The Fijian striker simply lobbed the ball over the goalkeeper to rescue a point for the visitors.

ISL PRESS RELEASE : A 10-man Odisha FC picked up their second win of the season as they overcame Hyderabad FC 3-2 in the Hero Indian Super League match at the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex here on Wednesday. Carlos Delgado (27') and Xisco Hernandez (41') gave Odisha a first-half lead before Bobo (65') scored from the spot to set up a nervy finish to the game. Odisha were awarded a penalty of their own at the other end, which Martin Guedes converted to secure the three points. Rohit Kumar (89') pulled one back at the death for the home side.

Odisha had Vinit Rai sent off for a second bookable offence in the 65th minute but they soldiered on for the rest of the match. After eight matches, Odisha are sixth on the table with nine points while Hyderabad are at the bottom with four points.The hosts' intent to get off the mark quickly was evident as they pressed high up the field in a bid to launch one attack after another. Aridane Santana flicked a good cross-field ball by Diawandou Diagne into the path of Nandhakumar Sekar who was dispossessed by Adil Khan with a brilliant tackle just before the winger could get a shot away.

The intensity bore fruit as Xisco, who was ever-present in midfield, set up the first goal with a dangerous in-swinging delivery from a corner. Goalkeeper Kamaljit failed to punch the ball away and Delgado made full use of the chance to head home the opening goal. A curling effort from Robin Singh flew inches wide as Hyderabad attempted to equalise but it was the home team who struck again before the break. The creator turned scorer as Xisco initiated a threatening move from the centre and passed it to Jerry Mawihmingthanga who returned the favour with a pin-point cross that the Spaniard slotted home from inside the box.

Odisha continued to threaten to add to their tally. Xisco was afforded a great chance to put the game to bed soon after the break when he was fed through by Jerry. The Spaniard attempted a dipping strike that flew wide of the target. Nandhakumar latched onto a diagonal from the deep, cut inside from the left flank and struck powerfully only to be denied by the crossbar. Odisha were jolted when Vinit Rai handled the ball inside the box, conceded a penalty and was sent off for picking up a second yellow. Bobo made no mistake from 12 yards to give his team a chance to get back into the game.

Hyderabad's hopes of a comeback were soon ended as Giles Barnes fouled substitute Martin Guedes and conceded a spot-kick at the other end. The Argentine stepped up and coolly slotted into the net to take the game away from Phil Brown's men. Hyderabad reduced the deficit in the 89th minute when a hopeful cross into the box by Gurtej Singh was headed in by Rohit Kumar but it was nothing more than a consolation.

ISL PRESS RELEASE : History was made on Thursday in Indian football when City Football Group (CFG) acquired a 65 per cent stake in Hero Indian Super League club Mumbai City FC. The Hero ISL club joins an elite list of clubs who are under the ownership of the Abu Dhabi based CFG which includes Premier League champions Manchester City and six other clubs around the world.

All of CFG's clubs have achieved remarkable branding and have seen booming business off the field. Meanwhile, Manchester City have revolutionized football in the Premier League and have improved leaps and bounds to be recognized as one of the best teams in the world under manager Pep Guardiola. Mumbai City will hope to achieve a step up in terms of quality, with a global reach for the club already guaranteed.

The tag of being associated with Manchester City, gives a massive shot in the arm to Indian youngsters playing for Mumbai City FC as the club could emerge as an inspirational destination given what the CFG network could provide to not only players, but to coaches as well. The potential is huge with the CFG alliance set to improve the club in terms of best practices in the sport on and off the field.

“I feel this is a momentous deal. This is indeed a great moment for football in India and all the young players who are emerging to play the sport. We have seen in the last four or five years how rapid the progress has been in Indian football after the emergence of the ISL. I believe City Football Group coming to India can only take football forward in our country," said Mumbai City goalkeeper and India international Amrinder Singh.

There could be a possibility of Mumbai City players also being part of an exchange programme which would allow them to train at some of the CFG-owned clubs across the world and thus, improve their skills further.Coach Jorge Costa, who won the UEFA Champions League with FC Porto as a player, believes that with CFG coming on board at Mumbai City, good times are around the corner for football fans in Mumbai.

“I am very proud to be part of this. I am very happy and excited. This will be wonderful for Mumbai City and also for ISL. I think they can bring us a lot of expertise to help the club first and then the ISL. "I think we still have a lot of work to do to improve the quality of ISL. Comparing to last year we are improving. It is a gradual process,” said the Portuguese coach.

CFG, which is known for their vision and far-farsightedness, are sure to bring success to the club in the near future. But more importantly, CFG's decision to enter the Indian market is a validation of the growing popularity of the sport and ISL.

ISL MEDIA: Chennaiyin FC registered their first win of the Hero Indian Super League season six in dramatic fashion after edging past Hyderabad FC 2-1 at the Jawaharlal Nehru stadium here on Monday. After seeing poor finishing hamper them for most of the game, Chennaiyin thought they had the winner when Andre Schembri (90+2’) put them ahead in injury time. A few minutes later, Hyderabad equalised through Matthew Kilgallon (90+5’), but Nerijus Valskis sealed a sensational win seconds later, bringing the roof down in the stadium.

The win saw Chennaiyin leapfrog Hyderabad to the ninth spot while the ISL debutants suffered their fourth defeat in five games. The game got off to a scrappy start with neither side able to assert themselves in a frantic opening period. Chances fell for Chennaiyin but poor decision-making meant the scores remained level. Rafael Crivellaro and Lallianzuala Chhangte found a lot of joy in the final third, often bypassing a disorganised Hyderabad midfield with ease. Chhangte was sent clear on three opportunities by Rafael, but each time the final delivery let the diminutive winger down.

Chennaiyin coach John Gregory was left fuming after Chhangte sent a close-range header agonisingly wide. It was one-way traffic, but the opening goal continued to elude Chennaiyin. Some good work from Anirudh Thapa saw Chhangte get to the byline. His eventual cutback found Thapa but his shot on the turn was kept out by a combination of Kamaljit and Matthew Kilgallon.

Despite the occasional forays forward by Hyderabad, the pattern of the game remained the same till the break with Chennaiyin spurning chances galore. Hyderabad did have a rare chance around the hour mark when Bobo slipped Marcelinho in, but his shot was parried by Vishal Kaith. Immediately at the other end, Kaith’s counterpart Kamaljit had to pull off a brilliant save from a vicious effort from Rafael.

The narrative of the game remained the same with Chennaiyin piling the pressure on Hyderabad, only to see opportunities wasted. Just as it seemed Chennaiyin’s goal drought would continue for yet another game, substitute Andre Schembri took matters into his own hands. The forward latched on to a cross from Edwin Vanspaul in injury time, held off his marker and fired a low shot past Kamaljit at the near post, registering Chennaiyin's first goal of the season.

But there was another twist in the tale as Kilgallon headed in an unlikely equaliser from a corner in the fifth minute of injury time. However, Chennaiyin had one late salvo to fire. Schembri and Valskis combined to send the latter through on goal and he tucked in an excellent finish to send the home crowd into raptures on the stroke of the full-time whistle.

ISL MEDIA RELEASE: A late Maximiliano Barreiro penalty proved to be the difference as NorthEast United FC defeated Hyderabad FC to climb to the top of the Hero Indian Super League standings at the GMC Balayogi Athletic Stadium here on Wednesday.

The teams had their fair share of moments in a closely-contested tie, but a handball in the 86th minute helped NorthEast United edge past their opponents.Robert Jarni's team remain unbeaten and have eight points from four games, while Hyderabad sit ninth on the table with three points. The hosts were quick to take the game to the opposition with Marcelinho impressing in the final third. Four minutes into the game, the Brazilian forward dribbled into the box, executed a step-over to outfox Mislav Komorski and thumped the ball towards the goal from a tight angle, forcing goalkeeper Subhasish Roy Chowdhury to make a low save.

Hyderabad were aggressive in their approach throughout the first-half, but their final ball lacked the threat to fetch an opener. At the other end, the visitors struggled to make an impact and failed to test the goalkeeper in the opening 45 minutes. Marcelinho once again showed his quality when he danced into the box but his cross towards Gani Nigam in the centre was headed clear.

Redeem Tlang got the better of the hosts' defence soon after the restart with a clever run in behind the defence. Substitute Maximiliano Barreiro lobbed a well-timed ball for the Indian forward whose powerful shot from an acute angle was kept out by Kamaljit Singh at his near post. The Highlanders, who sought a way back into the game, suffered a blow when Asamoah Gyan had to be forced off the field due to an injury. His replacement Panagiotis Triadis nearly made an instant impact when he flicked Reagan Singh's low cross from the right flank towards the goal following a clever run, but Kamaljit was up to the task.

Hyderabad found it difficult to maintain the intensity with which they ended the first half. Mohammed Yasir latched on to an excellent pass by Stankovic but sent his effort wide from inside the box. With clear-cut chances drying up, Rohit Kumar tested the keeper from outside the box after the hour-mark but hit it straight at Subhasish Roy.

There was drama at the end as a Jose Leudo strike from the edge of the box hit Shankar Sampingraj's hand, resulting in a spot-kick for the visitors. Barreiro stepped up and coolly slotted home from the spot, leaving Kamaljit with no chance and sealing an important win for his team.

ISL MEDIA RELEASE: Hyderabad FC came back from a goal down to register their first win in the Hero Indian Super League as they edged past Kerala Blasters FC 2-1 at the GMC Balayogi Athletic Stadium on Saturday. Rahul KP (34’) gave Kerala the lead in the first half but two second half strikes from Marko Stankovic (54’) and Marcelinho (81’) sealed full points for the hosts with a delightful free-kick.

Kerala were jolted right at the beginning when central defender Gianni Zuiverloon picked up an injury. Raju Gaikwad made his debut for the club, replacing the Dutch defender. The visitors were the more dominant side from the beginning and were close to breaking the deadlock in the 15th minute when young Rahul KP tried his luck from distance. But his effort flew just above the crossbar. The hosts had a chance of their own when Marcelinho got to Rohit Kumar’s through ball inside the box. He twisted and turned in a bid to go past Mohammed Rakip, but the Kerala right-back stood firm and snatched the ball away from the Brazilian.

02.11.2019: HYDERABAD FC <b><font color=red> 2-1 </b></font> KERALA BLASTERS

Kerala custodian TP Rehenesh almost gifted Hyderabad the lead in the 33rd minute when he failed to control Gaikwad’s back pass with his chest. Abhishek Halder was in position and tried to tap in but luckily for Kerala the ball went wide. Hyderabad would regret that miss immediately. Rehenesh's goalkick was unconvincingly cleared by Shankar Sampingiraj and the ball fell for Sahad Abdul Samad. The midfielder lobbed the ball for Rahul who found the back of the net with a first time shot.

Bartholomew Ogbeche could have doubled the lead in the 42nd minute when he received a through ball from Moustapha Gning and found himself one on one with the goalkeeper, but a heavy touch allowed Kamaljit to rush out of his line and collect the ball. Hyderabad started the second half on a brighter note and came close to equalising in the 48th minute. Marcelinho created the chance with a brilliant run down the left flank and beat Gaikwad with pace before cutting in and squaring the ball for Robin Singh. However, the striker unnecessarily complicated an easy tap in and squandered the opportunity.

The hosts restored parity in the 54th minute when Gning tripped Mohammad Yasir inside the Kerala box to give away a penalty. Marko Stankovic duly converted the spot-kick. At the other end, Hyderabad should have taken the lead in the 76th minute when Marcelinho received a through ball on the left flank. The Brazilian went past Jairo Rodrigues comfortably and attempted to curl the ball into the net at the far post but his shot went wide.

Marcelinho soon made up for his mistake by converting a classy free-kick in the 81st minute. The hosts were awarded the free-kick after Gning had brought down Nikhil Poojary with a poor challenge. The Brazilian found the back of the net with a curling left-footer to hand Phil Brown's side their first win of the season.
