Jamshedpur: Jamshedpur FC staged a remarkable recovery after being two goals down as they upstaged the Indian Super League’s bottom-placed side Delhi Dynamos 3-2 in a five-goal thriller in Jamshedpur on Sunday.

Delhi started this Hero ISL clash on the front foot thanks to a brace from Kalu Uche in the 20th and 22nd minutes.

But Jamshedpur FC never gave up. First, Tiri (29th minute) pulled a goal back before half-time and in the second session Yumnam Raju made it 2-2 in the 54th minute.

It was then left for substitute Trinandade Goncalves to score the match winner for the hosts in the 86th minute.

Kalu Uche gave the visitors the lead with a header in the 20th minute of the game. Nandhakumar Sekar received the ball on the left wing and picked up the striker with a pin point cross in the box. Jamshedpur FC goalkeeper, Subrata Paul’s desperate dive couldn’t save it from entering the nets.

Two minutes later, Delhi were two up in an almost identical move. Sekar again turned provider and Uche was again on hand to head the ball inside the net.
