BAMBOLIM: A play-off berth already booked, Kerala Blasters played out an exciting 4-4 draw against FC Goa — who are out of reckoning — in an Indian Super League match here on Sunday.
Hat-trick hero Airam Cabrera (49th, 63rd, 82nd) and Aibanbha Dohling (79th) both came off the bench to score for FC Goa. Earlier, Jorge Pereyra Diaz (10th, 25th) had impressed with a brace in the first half. Vincy Barreto (88th) and Alvaro Vazquez (90th) ensured that the Blasters gained a point late on.
The drawn result came less than 24 hours after Kerala qualified for the ISL semifinals.
The Gaurs ended their campaign at ninth place with 19 points. Kerala finished fourth with 34 points and eagerly await to learn their semifinal opponents, one between Jamshedpur FC and ATK Mohun Bagan.
Sahal Abdul Samad intercepted a ball, initially passed on to Anwar Ali by the keeper. A fine cross into the box and Diaz slid the ball into the net, breaking the deadlock.
