Hyderabad FC's Akash Mishra After the Game:

"I think coming back from a goal down and winning the game is the best thing.

"I think that was the changing moment. When Liston comes and brings in his energy and changes the game."

21:51 (IST)

SC East Bengal's Jacques Maghoma After the Match:

"It was a tough one. We started off well. Of course a little bit shaky in the first 5-10 minutes but then we picked up and got the first goal and then we settled down a bit. The keeper made a great save to keep us up 1-0. But second half they came up with high press and we conceded twice sadly.

"I was told the main thing is to be on the pitch. I have enough experience to play anywhere on the pitch and help the team. So I will play wherever I am asked to play. I was asked to play in the midfield today and later half, I went up a bit. Today, we finally got out first goal in the league but sadly, that didn't give us the win.

"We are just keeping them believing and mentally, keeping them strong in these tough situations. There are things going to be said about them and the team but we gotta stay together. We got two goals and we need to stop conceding goals. In one way, there were positive and the other way, we conceded on counter attacks mainly because we had the ball and gave away cheaply. Through these times, we need to be mentally strong that the things we are doing is going to work for us."

Hyderabad FC Head Coach Manuel Marquez After the Game:

"I think we suffered too much in the last minutes. After 3-1, we had to control the game more. I agree with Eelco when Aaron came into the pitch we had problems. In the last minutes, we put in a lot of young players and the team went nervous in the last minutes.

"I know that Liston is a very important player for us but you know how are the injuries in this championship. We have to be careful because we have 2-3 foreigners and Liston is very important but may be better when the other team is tired. He is very powerful.

"I told them that they were playing for me very good football, very good first half. I think we deserved to score before East Bengal. But these things happen in football even if you miss the penalty. We have to be compact and of course, one of the key is we equalised and then we scored another goal. I am happy because it is difficult to ask for more from my players.

"I think we need to arrive with more players in the box. If I have one thing to critize to my team is that we keep the ball and defend well but we need to arrive with more players in the box and sometimes, it is just Aridane. That improves with Liston but Narzary has to arrive more even though he shoots well."

21:42 (IST)

Robbie Fowler Bitterly Disappointed After the Match:

"I don't know where to start. We say the same thing again and again, I think our players need to concentrate for the whole 90 minutes. We are trying but we are just not good enough. We were late to the party and some of our players have come from I-League and are struggling in the ISL. We train well but when we come in match situations, the players don't perform as well. I really don't know what to do. The recruitment has not been kind to us.

"I actually don't think we were that good in the first half as well, we were lucky. We needed to concentrate, knew what we had to do. But the players switched off and then our level dropped.

"It is what it is. We have got the squad. We have mixed and matched everyone and I talk to all the players. I pick the team from what I see in training but today the players in that shirt isn't the same. Some of the players' performance is just not ISL standard."

ISL 2020-21 Hyderabad FC vs SC East Bengal HIGHLIGHTS: Aridane, Maghoma Scores Brace but Hyderabad Win 3-2

ISL 2020-21 Hyderabad FC vs SC East Bengal HIGHLIGHTS: Hyderabad FC beat SC East Bengal 3-2 at the Tilak Maidan in Vasco, Goa in Match No.29 of the Indian Super League (ISL) 2020-21 on Tuesday. Hyderabad registered their second win of the season and maintained their unbeaten status with a thrilling win. Hyderabad has a couple of big chances to increase their lead even more but the scoreline ended at 3-2. Jacques Maghoma scored his second as he headed in a smart free kick from Anthony Pilkington. Halicharan Narzary scored off some magical play by Liston Colaco to increase Hyderabad FC's lead. Aridane Santana scored two in 39 seconds to give Hyderabad the lead early in the second half. Hyderabad FC had a golden chance to equalise late in the first half when they got a penalty for Aridane Santana's effort was saved by Debjit. Jacques Maghoma makes history for SC East Bengal as he scores their first ISL goal to give them a lead against Hyderabad FC. Aridane Santana is in the starting XI for Hyderabad FC despite injury scare while Liston Colaco starts on bench. For SC East Bengal, CK Vineet is starting up front alongside Jeje Lalpekhlua.


Hyderabad FC have scored just one goal from open play (three altogether) and have the least shot accuracy of 20.68 per cent in this campaign. On the other hand, SC East Bengal are yet to open their account in the scoring department. The match-up is likely to be a low-scoring affair given the statistics that both teams hold at the moment.

Hyderabad FC coach Manuel Marquez brushed aside the talks of his team being under pressure and said, "Our team is playing good football and we don't have pressure. For me, the best thing at this moment is to know is that the performance of these guys without foreigners is fantastic and we have to improve as fast as we can." Robbie Fowler's East Bengal held Jamshedpur FC to a goalless draw despite playing with a man down for more than an hour, which he believes in an encouraging sign. "The motivation is always there to win every single game. We are a team with great work ethic. The togetherness from this team is brilliant. We are full of fighters," he said.

Marquez also said it wouldn't be an easy outing. "I think East Bengal is growing, and they had chances to score in their matches against ATK Mohun Bagan, Mumbai and NorthEast United when the scores were even. If we change our style because East Bengal has not scored any goals, it will be wrong. We know that we have possibilities to win the game if we play in our style."
