adidas nemeziz tango 17.3 tf dark blue white blue



Ever heard of a shoelace costing a match! The rare happening, cruel as it was, shattered a thousand Manipuri hearts at the Ambedkar Stadium as substitute Tiken Singh scored in the last minute of the extra time but in the process lost his boot too. The goal was thus disallowed as the referee S. Suresh, ruled that the boot distracted the goalkeeper. In the opinion of referees' inspector Melwyn D'Souza, had the soccer shoes fallen at the spot where Tiken took the shot, the goal would have stood. As Tiken retrieved it from the Punjab net, he realised the enormity of the tragedy. He banged his boot in disgust but failed to transform the fate of the contest. Punjab held its nerves to win in the tiebreak and make it to the final of the National Football Championship for the Santosh Trophy here on Friday.

The 54 scoreline, after the teams were locked 11 at the end of the regulation period, was a poor reflection of adidas nemeziz 17.3 tf Manipur's dominance.

The game came alive only in the extra time when Parveen Kumar, in the 10th minute, headed in a perfect diagonal ball from Harish Sharma. It was a weak header but productive. The second half was exciting skilful when Manipur held sway and robust when Punjab came into the picture.



James Singh rocked the crosspiece with cheap adidas soccer cleats a free kick. Punjab gasped. In a counter, Harvinder Singh almost sank Manipur. He first hit straight to the goalkeeper Noren Singh and then his header off the rebound only struck the crosspiece. Luck seemed to be favouring Manipur. Soon, it gained a free kick when Parveen fouled James and Tomba Singh, the man of the match', scored from the free kick.
