40’ Vampeta is fouled in a crucial counter. Moraes gets an orange card
39’ Vampetaaa. Goa are so close to scoring but just cannot find the back of the net.
38’ CAFUUUUU. So close. He’s claiming for a foul but the referee is not convinced.
37’ Goa are going to bring on an outfield player for their goalkeeper. Desperate times call for desperate measures.
37’ Goa with 20 shots on goal but only one goal.
36’ GOAAAA. Again. So close. They are very close to scoring. I can sense a goal here.

30’ Corner for Goa. Nothing significant from the corner. Poor from Goa.
28’ Kochi with another shot but its way over the crossbar.
27’ WHAT A GOALLLLL!! Chaguinha. So subtle from Chaguinha. It’s a blunder from Bebe. Great presence of mind from Chaguinha.

12’ Vampeta with a shot but his shot is wide.
