By Sportskeeda Desk | Last ModifiedJan 18, 2018 17:56 IST

Kerala beat Andhra Pradesh 7-0.


17:56 (IST)18 JAN 2018

It's FULL TIME at the Bangalore stadium. 7-0 the final score line. The fans from Kerala clap for the approaching players who return the favour by clapping back at the fans. Next Kerala match against Tamil Nadu on Monday. 

17:54 (IST)18 JAN 2018

A promising attack for Andhra Pradesh fizzles out as Kulu Praveen Kumar takes the ball forward but passes back.

17:51 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Sajith Poulose is ok. He jogs back onto the field, albeit gingerly.

17:50 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Looks like Sajith Poulose of Kerala has pulled a muscle while trying to chase the ball. The stretcher is out and he is receiving attention on the sidelines. Kerala down to 10 men for now.

17:47 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Andhra Pradesh's Bhimageni Vamsi takes the ball from his half and goes all the way to Kerala's half. He had options to his right and left but he kept going ahead and was dispossessed by Kerala's defenders.

17:45 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Andhra Pradesh build a promising attack but it ends in an offside. Kottipalli Rakesh was ahead of the last Kerala defender.

17:42 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Kerala can afford to relax but they are playing some silky football with some intricate passes. Andhra Pradesh have parked the bus!

17:40 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Substitution for Kerala. Goal scorer Vibin Thomas is substituted by Lijo S.

17:36 (IST)18 JAN 2018

It's 7-0! Goal for Kerala. Mohammed Shareef crosses the ball from the right and Afdal puts it into the net. This is embarassing for Andhra Pradesh.

17:34 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Andhra Pradesh's Kottipalli Rakesh attempts a longball throw into Kerala'a box. A few headers from the Andhra players comes to nothing as they are judged offside. This is the first offensive attempt by Andhra Pradesh this half.

17:31 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Kerala are just passing the ball around the centre of the park. Andhra Pradesh still not able to get near Kerala's box.

17:28 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Sreekuttan VS misses a glorious opportunity to score another goal. A cross from Shamnas lands beautifully for the left winger but he mistimed his shot.

17:24 (IST)18 JAN 2018

It's a goal. Kerala score again. 6-0! Mohammed Shareef crosses into the box and Afdal puts the ball into the net.

17:22 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Kerala's goal keeper Rahul V Raj has had nothing to do this half. Andhra Pradesh have rarely broken into Kerala's half. Complete one way traffic.

17:20 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Andra Pradesh living dangerously once again. Kerala nearly score another but a last ditch clearance by Settibalija Manikanta saves them.

17:19 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Lovely effort by Kerala. A cross from the right falls perfectly for Afdal who just misses the target with a magnificent header. Ball sails over the crossbar.

17:16 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Kerala substitution Jithin MS who has been the star for Kerala has substituted by Sreekuttan VS. Under 21 player for under 21.

17:14 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Would you believe it! It's 5-0! Goal for Kerala. Andhra Pradesh foul way outside the box but the long range free-kick sneaks into the goal as Vibin Thomas took a very powerful free-kick.

17:12 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Substitution for Andhra Pradesh as Shaik Moulali comes in for Chittiboyina.

17:11 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Jithin MS and Rahul KP both combine for the fourth goal. Both are under 21 players for Kerala. The future is bright for Kerala.

17:10 (IST)18 JAN 2018

And it's 4-0. Jithin MS who has been very good for Kerala pulls a back pass into the box and Rahul KP strikes it into the top corner. The goalkeeper got a hand to it but could not prevent the goal.

17:07 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Jithin MS starts of the proceedings with a shot across the goal for Kerala. The ball goes out  for a goal kick.

17:05 (IST)18 JAN 2018

And we are off with the second half!

16:53 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Kerala have some support at the ground. A few fans from Kerala have made it to the stadium at Bangalore. The score has made them cheerfully sing "La La La La Kerala".

16:51 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Half Time! It's 3-0 at half time. Two quick fire goals from Kerala and an own goal has made it comfortable for them. Wonder what Andhra Pradesh's reaction in  the second half will be.

16:49 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Kerala put the ball in the net but it is offside. Andhra Pradesh are lucky to have the score resting at 3-0.

16:46 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Kerala's Mohammed Shareef tries a lovely curler from the edge of the box which the goal keeper parries for a corner. Kerala waste the resulting corner with a tame attempt.

16:44 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Andhra Pradesh's Kulu Praveen is at the base of their midfield three. To be honest he has been guilty of some wayward passes and is too slow in transition.

16:43 (IST)18 JAN 2018

As we are approaching the first half both teams have taken the foot off the gas. Or should I say Kerala has taken the foot off the gas?

16:41 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Kerala's Seesan sends a lovely diagonal from the half way line to the left winger Rahul KP. The opportunity, however, is wasted.

16:39 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Andhra Pradesh defenders trying some long ball tactics but the ball only manages to reach Kerala defenders. This is quite a lackluster performance by Andhra Pradesh so far.

16:37 (IST)18 JAN 2018

A lovely turn by Kerala's Sajith Poulose gets him into the box with the goalkeeper to beat but some last second defending from Andhra Pradesh keeps them safe. Sajith tumbled asking for a penalty but the referee wasn't interested.

16:35 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Kerala's Rahul KP tries a lovely effort from the edge of the box which just fizzes over the cross bar.

16:33 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Andhra Pradesh build a promising attack but their winger Inti Kanaka is deemed offside.

16:32 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Kerala's right back Mohammed Shareef tries a long range shot which goes out harmlessly.

16:31 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Andhra Pradesh's ball from the midfield into the box lands tamely into Kerala goal keeper Rahul V Raj's hands.

16:29 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Andhra Pradesh are too slow in transition and they pay for it instantly. What should have been an attack resulted in defence with Kerala having three shots on goal. A last ditch goal line clearance by Andhra Pradesh prevents a goal.

16:27 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Kerala's Seesan and Shamnas are bossing the midfield. Seesan is fouled for a freekick which sails over the bar harmlessly.

16:24 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Andhra Pradesh are really toiling in the midfield. A few loose balls are costing them possession. They can't afford this with the score 3-0.

16:23 (IST)18 JAN 2018

We have a Kerala player down. Jithin is down with the medic. Nothing serious as he gets back into action.

16:21 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Kerala operating mostly through the right wing. Jithin MS has been very effective.

16:20 (IST)18 JAN 2018

GOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLL!!!!! It's 3-0! Can you believe it! An unfortunate own goal by Singampalli Vinod while attempting a back pass. This is going to be a long day for Andhra Pradesh.

16:19 (IST)18 JAN 2018

The second goal was created by a free kick from the halfway line, Afdal took the ball to the box and sent in a juicy cross which was almost wasted as two Kerala players go for the same ball but Rahul converted cooly.

16:16 (IST)18 JAN 2018

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLL!!!!!! It's 2-0! Afdal crosses from the right and Rahul KP scores the second.

16:13 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Andhra Pradesh's Kullu Praveen recovers from his own half but the pass is tame. Throw in to Kerala.

16:12 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Kerala's Sajith is almost through on goal with only the goalkeeper to beat but he is deemed offside.

16:10 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Andhra Pradesh's Singampalli tries a long range effort/pass from the halfway line which goes out for a kick.

16:09 (IST)18 JAN 2018

It's all one way traffic with Kerala attacking through both wings. Andhra Pradesh get a reprieve with a foul at the half way line.

16:08 (IST)18 JAN 2018

Kerala almost score another with Seesan hitting the ball from the edge of the box which is saved by Andhra's Goalkeeper.

16:06 (IST)18 JAN 2018

And we have a GOAL. Jithin runs through the right channel and crosses to Sajith Poulose who burrows it into the net. 1-0 Kerala.
