Hero Super Cup Football: Jamshedpur FC Knocks Out Minerva Punjab


Bhubaneswar: Sanjiban Ghosh turned out to be the hero of the match as Jamshedpur FC knocked out I-League champions Minerva Punjab 5-4 on the third day of the tournament and enter the quarterfinals of the Hero Super Cup Football at the Kalinga Stadium here on Monday.

Minerva, who were clearly the better team in the match, were left ruing their missed chances in the game, including an opportunity to close the game out in the tie-breaker.

Jamshedpur have had a fairly decent Indian Super League debut season finishing fifth in the points table with seven victories and six defeats in 18 matches played.

Minerva Punjab on the other hand scripted a fairytale journey to win the I-League title in only their second season.
