XtraTime Web Desk: FC Goa thumped another ISL side Jamshedpur FC with a thumping 5-1 result to pave their way through to the semi finals, in what happened to be the most controversial game of the Hero Super Cup.

Brandon Fernades scored the opening goal for FC Goa in the 34th minute. Brandon followed a brilliant through ball from Boumous inside the box and slotted the ball past Subrata Paul.

The biggest drama happened in the 48th minute when Subrata Paul, Anas Edathodika and Kervens Belfort from Jamshedpur FC and Sergio Juste, Bruno Pinheiro and Brandon Fernandes from FC Goa had been sent off in the beginning of second half due to protesting against the officials at half time.

Goa continued to put pressure on the Jamshedpur side as Ferran Corominas doubled Goa’s lead from the penalty spot in the 69th minute.

Manvir Singh scored the third goal for FC Goa in the 78th minute. Mandar received a long ball on the right flank and cut into the penalty box and squared the ball for Manvir who found the back of the net.

On the next minute, Hugo Boumous scored the fourth goal for FC Goa. Andre Bikey gave away the ball at the centre of the pitch and Boumous took the advantage. He ran down the middle, beat two defenders inside the box and slotted it past Rafique.

Goa made it 5-0 in the 89th minute. Hugo Boumous scored again for FC Goa. Bedia squared the ball in front of the goal and Boumous pushed it into the net.

Jamshedpur scored a consolation goal in the 93rd minute when Ashim Biswas restored some pride for Steve Coppell’s team. The suspensions might become a major issue for FC Goa when they will take on Kingfisher East Bengal in the big semi final.
