about the video

Goalkeeper Sandip Nandy emerged an unlikely hero for Kerala Blasters as he saved all three penalties against Delhi Dynamos FC and ensured his team’s passage in the final of Indian Super League 2016. Delhi Dynamos were leading 2-1 during regulation time and were tied 2-2 on aggregate in the second-leg semi-final at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Delhi, on Wednesday. The extra time failed to break the deadlock and in tie-breaker, Nandy proved Kerala’s saviour as Delhi failed to get the better of him with their first three penalties, taken by Florent Malouda, Bruno Pelissari and Memo. Kerala Blasters, who had won the first-leg semi-final 1-0, scored through Josue Prieto, Kervens Belfort and Mohammed Rafique with Antonio German’s miss counting for nothing as Kerala won 3-0 and earned the right to play Atletico de Kolkata in the grand finale in Kochi on Sunday. Incidentally, both teams had contested the final of the inaugural ISL in 2014. (Video and image courtesy: ISL)
