Miracles F.C. win 3 in a row following a 4-0 win over Creek View F.C.

Friday’s 11:00 a.m. kick-off at Pionsur Gymkhana between Miracles Football Club and Creek View Football Club in Mumbai District Football Association’s division III fixture concluded with Miracles Football Club recording an impressive third win on the spin as they defeated Creek View Football Club by 4-0 with goals from Arjun Singh, Pavio Pao, captain Noel Mendonza and Farren Fernandes.

Having led by 3-0 at half-time, Farren Fernandes’ second-half strike in the 32nd minute rounded-up the scoring, and with referee Lanster Fernandes’ full-time whistle, Miracles Football Club had obtained maximum points; making it nine points out of a possible twelve points from their opening four games in group ‘B’.

The first two goals came in quick successions with a difference of just two minutes between Arjun Singh’s opener from a corner and Pavio Pao’s powerfully driven shot past goalkeeper Prateek Singh into the bottom left-corner of the goal. While Miracles Football Club worked the ball in the midfield and final-third as a part of their built-up, Cree View Football Club went long and direct. The latter’s approach fell short as Miracles Football Club turned-out superior in the head-to-head tussle of physicality – winning a majority of the aerial duos and out-performing during one-on-ones with superior hold-up play.

Without the ball, Miracles Football Club remained solid at the back to close-down any space left behind the ball by remaining structured, and constructive, when they received the ball. Miracles F.C.’s possession of the ball was in the final-third area of the pitch for a majority of the game as their approach to push their wide players up versus their counterparts to form a 4 against 4 situation worked indefectibly. The 4 against 4 situation helped the full-backs to create an overload on the flanks, and as the two Creek View F.C. midfielders covered spaces and wingers narrowed down passing angles down the wings, Miracles F.C.’s midfielders were gifted with ample time on the ball to distribute it without any real pressure.

The first and third goal in the game came through set-piece opportunities, and not from open-play; the two goals were conceded, first, leaving Arjun Singh unmarked at the far-post to volley-in the opener, second, Noel Mendonza rose the tallest to guide in a looping header past Prateek Singh can be aspects to improve upon in the upcoming games for Creek View F.C.

Early goals from Miracles F.C. had set the rhythm in harmony, and as the match progressed, M.F.C. distributed the ball better in opposition half, and quick one-twos helped them penetrate between channels to break-down C.V.F.C.’s defensive efforts. The second-half started-off brightly for Creek View F.C. as Navin Baobale’s long-range effort rattled the frame of the Miracles F.C. goal in the first-minute of the second-half.

Farren Fernandes’ goal came from a set-piece opportunity in the 32nd minute; Noel Mendonza won the initial header inside the penalty box and after a defensive scramble, Prateek Singh could only find a touch too loose to keep-out Farren Fernandes’ final shot on-goal.

Most chances created by Creek View F.C. came via Siddesh Kamble’s solo-runs down the left-flank, which didn’t prove to fulfil its initial hype as poor finishing in the end from the number 7 meant the ‘0’ remained constant.
