Chhetri hat-trick takes Bengaluru to ISL final

Chhetri hat-trick takes Bengaluru to ISL final

Bengaluru FC coach Albert Roca has warned his players that pressure will be on the hosts in the Indian Super League (ISL) 2017/18 final and also hailed Sunil Chhetri for his hat-trick in his side's 3-1 win over FC Pune City. The industrious winger then crossed the ball into the box to find an unmarked Chhetri who headed it back across the keeper.

In the second half, the Bengaluru skipper stole possession on the left-hand side before making a clever run into the box.

His third goal came after substitute Jonatan Lucca curled in a delectable free kick in the 82nd minute to give Pune a chance of a comeback.

A statement from AIFF disciplinary committee chairman Ushanath Banerjee on Saturday evening mentioned that Popovic's suspension is withdrawn "subject to FC Pune City providing in writing an undertaking that there would be not an iota of indiscipline on the part of Popovic, nor there would be any scope of complaint against him till final adjudication of the subject issue following hearing on March 16 (the eve of the ISL final)". Chhetri picked himself up and audaciously chipped a "Panenka" penalty to double Bengaluru's advantage. "There are no words to define him, he is an outstanding player", praised Roca after the game. In such an important game. On one hand, it is what we wanted - to play here in front of our fans. His age does not matter.

"I am happy to have reached the final in our first season. He pushes others and shows incredible intensity", Roca added. "It is also important to focus on the squad, the technical staff after this important game", BFC coach said.

Then, DeVos admitted she didn't know if that happened in her home state of MI , where she has long advocated for such programs. Teachers began tweeting photos of what their classrooms actually look like at the education secretary.

"I think Sunil Chhetri is the best ever Indian player till now, and these kind of players know how to play these kind of games".

"This is a team game so not just him (Chhetri) but all the people around him did well". He scored a hat-trick, and he was the hero today. Mentally it was hard at 2-1 because one more goal for them and the situation would not have been easy for us to handle. That was our idea.

"We can not be disappointed".

Coming to their rivals, Pune have had somewhat of an inconsistent season finishing fourth in the league table with 30 points from 18 outings.

With the first leg ending in a goalless draw, both teams had everything to play for at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium. "I won't talk too much about whether it is fair or not".
