Valskis Shines With A Double As Jamshedpur Sink Goa

Jamshedpur 27th Nov 2021: Coming on the back of a draw against SC East Bengal, Jamshedpur FC took the early initiative of jumping on top of the table after dominating FC Goa for a 3-1 win in an Indian Super League (ISL) match here on Saturday.

Nerijus Valskis (51′, 61′) was the hero of the match as he remained one shy of a perfect hat-trick, managing to first drive the ball with his left foot and then score via a header.

Jordan Murray (80′) piled the third right after coming off the bench.

Airan Cabrera, though denied the Men of Steel, a clean sheet with a neat finish to register a goal in the 86th minute.

While Goa enjoyed ball possession, Jamshedpur had the better chances through set-pieces. Playing in a flat 4-4-2, Jamshedpur ensured that Goa could not find empty spaces to launch pressing attacks.

Valskis too tried his luck, but Dheeraj caught the ball after Glan Martins lost possession of the ball in midfield.

Right after the break, FC Goa threatened Jamshedpur with a freekick, but Rehenesh kept it at bay as Alberto Noguera was denied.

At the other end, Valskis made his long-ranger count and snapped his 10-game goalless run with a delectable left-footed strike to break the deadlock.
