Hero Indian Super League 2020-21: Goa beat Jamshedpur 3-0 to climb up to third place

January 15, 2021

Goa moved up to the third place in the Indian Super League (ISL) standings after registering a comprehensive 3-0 win over Jamshedpur at the Fatorda Stadium yesterday.

Jorge Ortiz Mendoza scored a brace as Goa defeated Jamshedpur. The Gaurs were also helped by some brave goalkeeping from Naveen Kumar, who was brought in to replace Mohammad Nawaz. Ortiz scored in both halves while Ivan Gonzalez added a late third after Jamshedpur’s Alexandre Lima received marching orders following a second booking.

It was end-to-end play in the opening minutes which saw both sides create goal-scoring opportunities. Jamshedpur had an early opportunity to take the lead when they were awarded a free-kick outside the box. Aitor Monroy’s outswinging freekick into the box was there to be put in by Peter Hartley, but the skipper couldn’t get the right connection.

At the other end, Goa pressured the opponents and nearly broke the deadlock when Brandon Fernandes played Ortiz through on goal, but the latter’s shot was kept out by Rehenesh.

However, the Jamshedpur goalkeeper couldn’t stop Ortiz in the 19th minute. Noguera’s brilliance on the right saw him get past his marker with quick feet and composure. The Spaniard then squared the ball to Ortiz, who fired it into the bottom corner.

Soon after the start of the second half, Ortiz scored his second. Noguera played Brandon through and the Goan squared it towards Ortiz. He took a first-time shot, which hit the post but he did not miss on the rebound. Ortiz had the chance to complete his hat-trick a while later but this time, Rehenesh pulled off a fine save. Goa scored their third through Ivan Gonzalez. The defender played a one-two with Angulo at the edge of the box and dinked the ball past Rehenesh, into the net.
