ISL 2018-19: FC Pune City 2-1 Jamshedpur FC – Hits and Flops
Hit: Carlos Calvo
Calvo is the only Jamshedpur player who found a place on this list. In fact, he is the only player who needs to get a mention. Of course, Jamshedpur missed players like Sergio Cidoncha, Tim Cahill and Gourav Mukhi. But Calvo tried his best to take the responsibility, which he did, but that was not enough to avoid a defeat.
Jamshedpur coach Cesar Ferrando kept Michael Soosairaj on the bench and included Calvo in his starting line-up. Calvo started as a central attacking midfielder but quickly switched his position with Pablo Morgado. The Spaniard has some brilliant footwork and at the same time, he has pace, by which he can quickly reach the goalmouth. His crosses from the left side are also lethal.
Pune got a taste of that when Calvo’s pin-point cross was met by Passi. The Indian was quiet but Calvo celebrated the goal by fisting his hands. Apart from his crosses and brilliant run-ins, Calvo took a brilliant left-footed shot which went inches over the bar. That could’ve stamped his mark on the pitch.
