Chennaiyin FC chief coach John Gregory admitted that he began with a wrong formation and shape of his team in the first half which saw them concede three goals during their close loss against FC Goa in the Indian Super League (ISL) contest at Marina Arena on Sunday.
Chennaiyin opted for a 3-5-2 formation and it resulted in goals from Ferran Corominas Telechea (25th minute), Manuel Lanzarote Bruno (29th) and Mandar Rao Desai (39th).But Gregory felt that having switched to a 3-4-3 formation gave the side much more balance and power to counter the Goan side, which packed several midfielders and a lone forward in Telechea.
Chennaiyin came into the second half making two changes, bringing in Bikramjit Singh and Gregory Nelson in place of Slovenian forward Rene Mihelic and L. Dhanachandra Singh respectively.They came roaring back as Spanish Inigo Calderon's free-kick was poorly handled by Goan custodian Laxmikant Kattimani in the 70th minute. Raphael Augusto converted a penalty 13 minutes later to give some nervous moments to Goa but the visiting outfit managed to seal a 3-2 win.
"I accept the responsibility that we put out a wrong formation in the first half. With that shape, we exposed ourselves more than we should have to Goa. We needed four midfielders which we brought in the second half and the game changed," John said at the post-match press conference.
"In the first half, Goa moved the ball really well and some of their movements were excellent."The coach also felt that they deserved a draw."We deserved a draw. Goa must have been delighted with the final whistle. It was an outstanding second half performance.
"It was a one-way traffic. We were chasing the game and Dontari Poe Womens Jersey due to that, we exposed ourselves more but Goa never really threatened our goal in the second half. I am really proud of the way we fought back," Gregory added.orld Cup hosts Russia showed fighting spirit to twice battle back from a goal down to draw 3-3 with Spain on Tuesday, ending a six-game winning streak for Julen Lopetegui's visiting side.Spain took control in the first half with a ninth-minute header from Jordi Alba and a fortuitous penalty for handball which defender Sergio Ramos coolly converted in the 35th.
Midfielder New York Yankees Youth jersey Alexei Miranchuk then ghosted in at the near post to equalise five minutes into the second half, although Spain quickly reestablished their lead three minutes later thanks to another penalty scored by captain Ramos.
However, Russia hit back again with another lightning move, recovering the ball following a Spain throw-in and working the ball to Krasnodar striker Smolov, top scorer in the Russian Premier League for the last two seasons, who unleashed a deadly strike past helpless keeper David de Gea in the 70th.
