Full-time report: Some people are late bloomers. They tend to flourish at a relatively older age. If that is the definition, then the clash between FC and FC at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium in was a late-bloomer. A scruffy first-half gave way to an exciting second half that produced three goals, all of which were scored after the 80th minute. One thing that certainly wasn't a late-bloomer in the game was 16-year-old Gourav Mukhi, who scored Jamshedpur's first and the game's second goal in the 81st minute.

The start of the game was sterile with sparse chances created as both teams played a less risk-less reward game.

did well to get their players in advanced positions but their crossing failed them time and again. They also fancied some shots from distance but to no avail, except for that one long-range-shot which 20-year-old Indian youngster Nishu Kumar struck in the 44th minute to give his team a 1-0 lead right before the break.

The first half was a forgotabble one for fans as well as and Tim Cahill, especially the latter who made his debut in the Indian Super League in this game. He was later taken off in the second half for 16-year-old Mukhi in the 70th minute. The move paid dividends 11 minutes later when he got at the end of a lofted ball into the box and slipped it with the outside of his right boot into the bottom left corner. The teenager was in ruptures, as was the crowd.

But the celebrations by the visiting fans was quickly halted by who else but the captain of the home team, Sunil Chhetri, who sprinted into the box and rose his 5'6 frame to head a floated cross downwards into the back of the net to make it 2-1 in favour of Bengaluru FC. The victory seemed all but assured for the home team until a fine team move by FC ended with Sergio Cidoncha receiving a cut-back just outside the box from Mario Arques. Cidoncha slotted his first time shot into the bottom right corner, triggering celebrations in the away dugout. 

Bengaluru FC would certainly see the match as having lost two points than one point gained, especially because of the late Chhetri goal which they failed to ride to win. Jamshedpur, on the other hand, must be over the moon since they now have a win and a draw on the road. They also stand in the second position of the points table while Bengaluru FC are two slots down in the fourth position. Although the visitors may rue their one appeal for penalty which was turned down when Jerry was brought down inside the Bengaluru box.

Some of the players will now head for their national duties as the international break beckons. The first week of the ISL has been unpredictible, at the very least, with a few surprises springing up. Join us for the next phase of the tournament, on October 17, when Delhi Dynamos host ATK.
