The New Look Delhi Dynamos
Delhi Dynamos, Which became the first Indian Super League side to go head to head with a premier league club, gave a pretty tough fight to the home team last Saturday.
It was a day to remember for Indian Football fans. Where in Mumbai, India was toying with Puerto Rico and in England, Delhi Dynamos was battling West Bromwich Albion.
On the day when Delhi Dynamos friendly was announced a lot of people went on to predict a thrashing, But when finally the day came, they ended up praising the club for their quality performance against a stronger side. Absolutely no one other than the Delhi Fans themselves could have predicted such a strong performance by the Indian Super League side.
The baggies fielded a strong line-up in the friendly, Mohamed Sissoko, Maruane Chamakh, Craig Dawson , Jonas Olsson and Rahis Nabi, youngest of the Nabi brothers also featured for the baggies Where in their record signing Nancer Chadly made his debut along with Robson Kanu.
It was a day of great performances, the Indian lads did a pretty impressive job on the pitch. Rupert Nongrum, Shauvik Chakrabarti, Kean Lewis and Milan Singh looked very strong, Anas was playing well before being substituted because of a bad tackle on one of West Brom's Maruane Chamakh. Other than that our foreign signing David Addy impressed everyone with his pace and skills.
The Lions relied on counter attacks and everyone did their defensive work well, the side looked fit and ready, The fans did not get to see a lot in attack but Dynamos came close to scoring a few times, the best one when Kean Cobra Lewis took a shot from a distance coming from a counter attack which eventually hit the post.
West Brom scored in the 64th minute through a great finishing off a cross by their academy player James smith. Overall the game was very pleasing to the eye.
Delhi Dynamos's performance would have alerted a lot of teams, Delhi Dynamos will be a force to reckon with during this season of Indian Super League, Delhi has proved to be a strong contender for the trophy and the fans would be positive after the watching this game.
