Kerala’s second goal was scored in the 67th minute when Sajeesh did exactly that. At the beginning of the second half, the Assam players controlled the field with a quick move.

Cold and turf challenge

The weather here is a red alert for the players who have come from South India. The temperature was 20 degrees Celsius at 2.30 pm when Kerala’s match started yesterday. It was down to 19 at half time. The stadium at Upia is located at an altitude of about 217 meters above sea level. The weather and the game at altitude are testing the athleticism of the Kerala players. Yesterday’s first match is an example of that.
