Stop the service to Issam Jemaa

The service to Jemaa must be stopped

The service to Jemaa must be stopped

Tunisian international Issam Jemaa is undoubtedly Kuwait SC’s danger man as he is capable of both scoring and beating defenders in one-on-one situations. At this level, it won’t be unfair to say that he is unplayable inside the box. So the key will be to completely limit the service to him. While Uga Okpara or Arnab Mondal will have to keep a close eye on Jemaa all the time, the players in front and around the East Bengal central defenders must stop the ball from getting to the Tunisian striker. If the service to Jemaa is stopped, then half of East Bengal’s job will be done. It is a daunting task but not impossible and will come down to East Bengal not giving away possession easily and getting bodies back when they lose the ball so that the Kuwait SC midfielders and withdrawn forward Rogerinho don’t get time and space to find Jemaa.
