Nercoa edge Kerala Blasters to enter quarterfinal

I-League runners-up Neroca FC rallied from a  two-goal deficit with a three-goal burst in 12 minutes to stun Kerala Blasters 3-2 and book a quarterfinal spot in the Super Cup on Friday.

Neroca were trailing 0-2 till the 70th minute of the match after strikes from Victor Pulga (11th minute) and Prasanth (49th) but the Manipur side fought back in a remarkable fashion to run away with full three points in the round of 16 match at Kalinga Stadium.

Jean-Michel Joachim (70th) began the Neroca fightback before Aryn Glen Williams (79th) restored parity. Felix Chidi (82nd) converted a penalty to send Neroca into the quarterfinals.

Neroca face Bengaluru FC for a place in the semifinal.
