In a crucial semi-final clash on Wednesday, Kerala Blasters defeated Delhi Dynamos in a penalty shoot out to qualify for the final of Indian Super League 2016, where they take on Atletico de Kolkata.
Kerala Blasters won the match 3-0 on penalties after the regulation time ended 2-1 in favour of the home side.
Dynamos’ inspirational skipper Folrent Malouda, who otherwise played his heart out in the regulation plus extra time, shot one way above the bar, much to the disbelief of all at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium to leave the hosts trailing in the shootout.
As the scoreline read 2-1 (2-2 aggregate) in favour of Dynamos after 120 minutes of enthralling football, the match went into shootout.
