Blasters
featuring
in
the
London
leg
of
the
tournament
lost
0-7
to
Tottenham
Hotspur
while
Bengaluru
FC
went
down
3-6
against
Leicester
City
in
the
Midlands
leg.

The
Blues
shipped
six
goals
against
the
Foxes
in
the
first
hour
but
soon
found
their
feet
to
give
Leicester
City
a
bit
of
a
scare
as
they
scored
three
quickfire
goals
in
the
second
half.

The
first
opening
of
the
match
at
the
Leicester
City
Academy
Ground
on
Wednesday
fell
to
the
Indian
side
as
Bekey
Oram
won
the
ball
high
up
the
field
in
the
5th
minute
but
his
attempt
on
goal
was
off
target.

The
early
scare
woke
up
the
Foxes
as
they
upped
the
tempo
and
broke
the
deadlock
in
the
13th
minute
when
Kian
Pennant
scored
at
the
end
of
a
fine
move.

William
Alves
then
doubled
the
lead
as
Leicester
City
pounced
on
some
sloppy
play
from
the
Blues
to
make
it
2-0
in
the
18th
minute.

Chris
Popov
then
added
a
third
for
Leicester
City
before
Pennant
struck
again
to
make
it
4-0
inside
the
first
half
an
hour.

The
Blues
goalkeeper
Sharon
Padattil
was
kept
busy
and
he
made
a
top
save
to
deny
the
Foxes
a
fifth
before
half-time.

However,
the
English
side
continued
their
onslaught
after
the
break
as
Popov
scored
his
second
to
make
it
5-0
seven
minutes
into
the
second
half
before
completing
his
hat-trick
on
the
hour
mark
as
the
Foxes
scored
a
sixth
goal.

Bengaluru
FC
though
sprung
into
life
after
the
hour
mark
as
Sivasakthi
Narayanan
got
his
team
on
the
scoresheet
after
tapping
home
a
rebound
in
the
67th
minute.

Two
minutes
later,
the
Blues
scored
again
through
Damaitphang
Lyngdoh
as
he
brilliantly
found
the
bottom
corner
with
a
well-taken
finish.

Sivasakthi
then
scored
a
beauty
for
his
second
goal
of
the
evening
and
made
it
6-3
in
the
73rd
minute
to
bring
the
Indian
side
back
in
the
game.

Leicester
City
then
regained
control
of
the
match
and
won
a
penalty
in
the
82nd
minute
but
Bengaluru
FC
goalkeeper
Deepesh
Chauhan
produced
a
double
save
to
keep
the
score
at
6-3.

The
Blues
tried
to
further
cut
the
deficit
but
Leicester
City
held
on
to
claim
the
win.

Bengaluru
FC
will
now
fight
for
third
place
against
Nottingham
Forest
in
the
Midlands
leg
on
Saturday.


Blasters
come
unstuck
against
Tottenham

Kerala
Blasters
FC
endured
a
difficult
afternoon
as
they
lost
0-7
to
Tottenham
Hotspur
in
the
second
semi-final
of
London
leg
of
the
Next
Gen
Cup
2022
at
the
Tottenham
Hotspur
Academy
Ground
in
London
on
Wednesday.

The
English
side
got
off
to
a
fast
start
and
started
putting
pressure
on
Kerala
Blasters
FC
right
from
the
kick-off.

However,
Tomasz
Tchorz’s
men
were
able
to
create
an
opening
and
got
their
first
big
chance
after
the
Spurs’
goalkeeper’s
faulty
pass
was
intercepted
by
Ajsal,
but
the
latter
failed
to
make
a
quick
decision
in
the
attacking
third
as
the
Blasters
were
dispossessed
in
a
very
encouraging
position.

Tottenham
Hotspur
continued
to
be
the
dominant
side,
pulling
strings
and
having
a
lion’s
share
of
the
possession.

Spurs
drew
first
blood
in
the
31st
minute
after
a
save
from
Sachin
Suresh
fell
onto
Jahziah
Linton
who
made
no
mistake
and
fired
it
down
the
middle.

The
English
side
had
breathing
space
as
they
slotted
another
one
as
Riley
Owen
found
Jaden
Williams
through
a
lofted
pass
in
the
box,
with
the
latter
latching
it
into
the
bottom
corner
of
the
net
to
make
it
2-0
for
his
side.

Tottenham
Hotspur
went
into
the
break
with
the
two-goal
cushion
intact.

Spurs
fired
off
a
great
second
half
as
Max
McKnight
made
it
three.
The
full-back
was
left
unmarked
after
a
threaded
pass
from
Owen
and
he
made
no
mistake
in
finding
the
net.

In
the
60th
minute,
Kerala
Blasters
FC
had
their
best
chance
of
the
match
after
a
brilliant
one-two
between
Jeakson
Singh
and
Givson
Singh
found
the
latter
in
a
shooting
position
but
his
shot
went
narrowly
above
the
bar.

A
minute
later,
Spurs
fired
their
fourth
from
a
brilliant
counter-attack
through
Tom
Bloxham.

In
the
73rd
minute,
George
Abbott
skillfully
got
past
two
defenders
and
passed
to
his
man
on
the
left.
Receiving
the
ball
on
the
run,
the
attackers
netted
in
the
right
corner
to
make
it
five
for
Spurs.

Then,
Williams
scored
his
side’s
sixth
from
the
penalty
spot
after
he
was
brought
down
by
Bijoy
Varghese.

In
the
closing
stages
of
the
game,
Williams
completed
his
hat-trick
after
dribbling
past
three
players
and
shooting
into
the
far
post
from
his
weaker
foot
to
make
it
seven.

Kerala
Blasters
FC
will
now
fight
for
third
place
against
Crystal
Palace
in
the
London
leg
of
the
event.
