Match report:
Churchill Brothers SC trashed their Goan rivals Salgaocar SC 5-0 in the third place playoff match of the 27th Federation Cup at the Nehru Stadium, Margao. It was Churchill Brothers all the way as they faced a tired Salgaocar, who played their third match in five days with the two earlier matches having both gone 120 minutes, one even into penalty shootout. The batteries were just empty and Churchill piled on their misery. The third place finish entitled Churchill Brothers to Rs 200,000 as prize money.
Churchill Brothers took the lead just after 12 seconds as Chanambam Jatin Singh scored of a pass from Nigerian striker Tony Gbemudu Ngozi. It was the fastest goal of the tournament so far, even one of the fastest goals ever scored in Indian football. Churchill continued their raids on the Salgaocar goal and scored two more goals before the breather, Carlos Fernandes in the 20.minute and striker Tony Gbemudu Ngozi in the 39.minute. Churchill continued their attacks in the second half, but had to wait late to score two more. In the 82.minute Ghanian captain Osumanu Husseini made it four-nil, before substitute PT Somy made it five after Salgaocar keeper Juje Siddi failed to hold on to a Tony shot.
