Neyveli (TN): In the Group B match of the South Zone qualifiers of Santosh Trophy, Kerala returned from field with a goalless tie match against Telangana here on Monday. The Kerala team wasted nearly 10 opportunities to earn a goal against Telangana.
In the first half, though, Kerala had half a dozen opportunities, they couldn’t create goals. Flaws in finishing was the villain. Since the first qualifying game ended in tie, the next two games against Services and Puducherry in the qualifier round turn crucial for Kerala.
V Midhun, Rahul Raj, Season and Jithin Gopalan played in the first eleven. In the central defence positions, Rahul V Raji and Alex Saji exhibited their best game. Attackers Christie Davis and Muhammed Inayath’s fruitless efforts to turn the opportunities ended up in a goalless draw game.
