ISL 2020-21 HIGHLIGHTS, Kerala Blasters FC v SC East Bengal: Jeakson's goal after the last breath brings Kerala a 1-1 draw

ISL 2020-21 Highlights, Kerala Blasters FC v SC East Bengal: A final header from Jeakson Singh helped KBFC save a point as the match between Kerala Blasters and SC East Bengal ended in a 1-1 draw. The Kolkata-based club took the lead in the 13th minute of the game when Bakary Kone put Mohammed Rafique’s square pass into the net. Kerala had more ball throughout the game, but they lacked the spark. On the flip side, the East Bengal players put in a brilliant shift tonight at the GMC Stadium in Bambolim but missed the killer pass to extend their lead. KBFC goalkeeper Albino Gomes had a brilliant game today, making some very important saves that kept the Kochi-based team in play.

Despite a good start in the games, both sides failed to keep their momentum and lost points from promising positions. Eight of the ten goals conceded by both teams fell after the break and underline the fighting in the second half.


“Every game is a new challenge. We are in a similar situation. Both teams want to score three points. We are training well and trying to prepare for the game as best we can. Hopefully we can play a good game tomorrow.” “said Kerala coach Kibu Vicuna.” Sometimes we get good results, sometimes we don’t. Something doesn’t happen because another team is playing and they also have a plan, “added Vicuna.

Like Kerala, East Bengal has a similar philosophy of maintaining ownership and building the game from behind. But despite the dominant possession, it was quite a struggle for them to create opportunities.

Kerala has created the lowest odds in the league (31), while East Bengal is just above (36). They may not have scored a point yet, but East Bengal manager Robbie Fowler is convinced of the capabilities of his team and wants them to concentrate better.

So far, East Bengal have only scored two goals through Jack Maghouma, who was scored in his previous game against Hyderabad FC. The Kolkata giants hope to improve their record in the face of the defensive problems in Kerala – they have only managed to concede one goal so far.

“We want to be in control of the game, the ball and the sweepstakes,” said Fowler. “The level of concentration needs to be a little bit better, formations don’t matter to me. We went out believing we could win games. We showed a lot of insights to compete with. There have been certain incidents that are sometimes against us gone, but there is nothing between us and the other teams. “
