Jamshedpur FC lost the opportunity to bag three points in the away match against Kerala Blasters at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium on Friday in Kochi. The match have ended up with a 2-2 draw as the hosts managed to bring 2 points home after a tough fight.
Jamshedpur FC coach Antonio Iriondo will surely regret the chance of losing three points that could push his team atop the table. Kerala Blasters’s Cameroonian striker Mario Arques scored double to rescue his team from losing 3 points in the home.
Jamshedpur boss Antonio Iriondo looked disappointed in the post-match conference but eventually admitted that it was a fair result for both teams. He added he always tries to accept the result. Although he thinks that his boys should have clinched a victory in this away match.
He also said that how the Jamshedpur players allowed the Kerala Blasters attacking line to get into their deep defense was quite disappointing. He also looked unhappy about the way his team left Messi Bouli unmarked that eventually costs his team 3 points and a victory that was looking very much possible.
The Jamshedpur FC coach said that they have made things easy for the Kerala Blasters in the latter half of the game as they had done some stupid mistakes in the goals.
In this match, Jamshedpur midfielder Piti returned to the squad after a long layoff. However, the Spaniard was impressive in his return as he scored one from the penalty spot. Iriondo played him only 60 minutes in the match. Later he said as the Spaniard came after suffering from the injury for the last five weeks, he didn’t want to take any risk with the dependable midfielder.
