13 Sep 2017 06:16 PM

Gokulam FC scored a last-minute equalizer against Sporting Clube de Goa to complete the semi-final line-up in the 1st AWES Cup. The match was played at the Duler Football Stadium in Mapusa on Tuesday.

Gokulam FC will now meet Salgaocar FC in the second semi-final on Thursday. The Kerala side was trailing 1-2 with just minutes on the clock but a last minute equalized in the 90th minute.

Sporting failed to clear a ball that was lobbed inside the danger zone and Gokulams Bijesh TB’s attempt was deflected off Shihad into the goal from close range.

Sporting Clube needed a win to qualify for the semi-finals from the group, while Gokulam needed only a point.

Earlier Sporting Clube took an unexpected lead, capitalising on a blunder from the Gokulam defence as goalkeeper Ajmal PA clashed with defender Ugochukwu Godswill, allowing substitute Marcus Mascarenhas a chance to slot the ball home.
