WE TAKE A LOOK at some of the players who played a vital part in securing their teams' passage to the ISL finals and those whose below-par performances took their teams out of the championship race.
A DOMINANT FIRST HALF sent FC Goa firmly in the driving seat. They then endured an excruciatingly physical second half to deny opponents Delhi Dynamos any chance to score, and breached their defence, weakened due to the departure of John Arne Riise with an injury, a total of 3 times to claim a 3-0 win; and a ticket to the ISL 2015 final thanks to a 3-1 victory in aggregate over both legs of the semi-final match-up.
A HIGH-TEMPO, physical half of football saw FC Goa unleash a wave of attacks on the visitors FC Goa and end the first half with a 2-0 lead. This means the Gaurs are 2-1 ahead in aggregate and the favourites to go into the final; but Delhi can still turn the table with just one goal.
THE SHOWDOWN between Zico's FC Goa and Delhi Dynamos helmed by Roberto Carlos is one of the best things Indian Super League has ever showcased for football fans at large.
FC GOA are keen to avoid another loss at the semi-finals as they prepare to overturn a 0-1 deficit against Delhi Dynamos in the second leg semi-final clash of the Indian Super League (ISL) here on Tuesday.
FC GOA's HEAD COACH ZICO said on Friday they might have lost the first leg battle of the first semi-final 1-0 but still have an equal chance of entering the final, with the return leg match to be played at their backyard on Tuesday.
A LATE FIRST HALF GOAL from Robin Singh was enough to secure a narrow, hard-fought 1-0 victory for Delhi Dynamos over FC Goa at home in the first leg of their semi-finals in ISL tonight.
AN ALL-IMPORTANT Robin Singh goal got Delhi Dynamos a 1-0 lead in the first half of the first leg of their ISL semi-final encounter with FC Goa at home.
DELHI DYNAMOS player-coach Roberto Carlos has decided not to come back to the ISL next year. Ahead of the first leg of the semi-final encounter against FC Goa, the legendary Brazilian football star has told reporters that he has some offers from clubs back home as well as Spain and he will look to explore his options.
