Dominant Delhi Dynamos register emphatic win over Delhi United
Goals from Pritam Kotal, Kalu Uche, Guyon Fernandez, Nandha Kumar and Vinit Rai hand the ISL outfit a 5-1 win.
Dynamos started the game in the ascendancy and had the better of the opening exchanges. Matias Mirabaje came close to scoring the opening goal but his effort missed the top corner by a whisker.
Dynamos’ persistence paid off in the 15th minute though when Kalu Uche’s cross from outside the box found the unmarked Pritam Kotal, who headed in to hand the ISL outfit the lead.
Can the Dynamos receive the support India U-17 team had during the FIFA World Cup?
It was one-way traffic from then on as, Guyon doubled the lead minutes later, capping off a well-worked move. Delhi United though pulled one back through a free-kick from centre-forward Rex. Any chance of a comeback was quashed away by Uche, who tucked away the spot kick to hand Dynamos a 3-1 lead at half-time.
Jeroen Lumu, Romeo Fernandes and Nandha Kumar were sent on in the second half and the trio combined to keep the pressure going on the opposition defence. Nandha was rewarded for his fine play 11 minutes from time as he hammered home a shot from 30-yards out to extend Dynamos’ advantage.
Vinit Rai then added the finishing touch as he took advantage of some dismal goalkeeping to make the score 5-1 and hand Dynamos an emphatic win.
