Kolkata were made to work very hard for their draw as Delhi were on the move from the start. Both teams fought very hard as this was the first evenly poised match. The match was slow in pace at times as both teams seemed to be happy with a draw.
Kolkata were as attacking as they were in the first two games. But, couldn’t take advantage as Delhi always fought back. The players of both teams were impressive and the energy, momentum cannot be described. Both teams had some young Indian talents firing and was Delhi who impressed one and all with their attacking strategies.
For Kolkata it was the international’s dominating and in contrast it was Indians shining for Delhi. For Kolkata it was JOFRE to score of a penalty. For Delhi it was Elias who made a top class goal. This was probably the best goal of ISL-2014.
