Commentary

FULL TIME: Jamshedpur FC 0-0 ATK: The story ended the same way it started as the hosts still searching for their first goal and the champs still looking for their first win in Jamshedpur's first ever ISL home game.
90' + 4' IT IS OVER! The referee blows the whistle to put the spectators, who are still full of energy somehow, out of their misery.
90' + 2' In-house JFC expert Ritabrata Banerjee won't complain much as he has little left to analyse. But for both teams it is high time to pull their socks up and improve their game. It will not only be points at stake but how many will throng to the grounds to see this kind of a game in the future, especially ATK attendances dwindling by the day?
90' We will be treated to three minutes more of this game as the per the fourth official. The talk of the town is the 2018 FIFA World Cup Draw and do not miss one bit of the coverage we have panned out for you. Just click on the homepage. But wait, let us finish this first.
88' Two minutes left of regulation time. Bikey takes a tumble and grazes a huge patch of the ground with his boots. Maybe a souvenir to take back home as goals won't be what they will take back?
86' We are told 23,891 people in the stadium have gathered to see what could well be Jamshedpur FC's third 0-0 draw on the trot. 
84' As interesting as his name sounds, Njazi Kuqi fails to make the most of his chance alone in the box from Bipin's cross. Jamshedpur are kept interested.
81' Meanwhile, Ritabrata Banerjee, our in house Jamshedpur FC expert proclaims the internet connectivity at the stadium reflects the tempo of the game - SLOW.

Yellow Card
79' Yellow card Prabir Das
79' The colour of the card dished out to Prabir Das is similar to his hair colour. Thankfully for him the shade is not burgundy and just blonde. The former Mohun Bagan man escapes a red for flicking the linesman's shirt.
Matheus Trindade
S. Doutie
76' Substitution Sameehg Doutie Matheus Trindade Gonçalves
76' Trindade Goncalves makes his way onto the pitch as Sameegh Doutie will not finish the full game against his former team. The pitch meanwhile appears to be weary and it will be interesting to see how they make it ready for the next game against FC Pune City on 10 December.
75' Some fans have been following the World Cup draw in Jamshedpur and one of them has already placed a wager on Panama knocking England out. Should not have said that loud as Steve Coppell, Teddy Sheringham and Ashley Westwood would not take much kindly to that prediction.
73' Who according to you has the easiest World Cup 2018 draw? Do let us know in the comments down below...
72' Meanwhile, in front of us, ATK squander two chances from flag-kicks as Bipin is failed by his strikers inside the box. Bikash Jairu has been summoned in to provide some pace on the flanks for the hosts.
B. Jairu
J. Mawihmingthanga
71' Substitution Jerry Mawihmingthanga Bikash Jairu
71' Confirmed Group H: Poland, Senegal, Colombia, Japan.
71' Confirmed Group G: Belgium, Panama, Tunisia, England.
70' Confirmed Group F: Germany [HOLDERS], Mexico, Sweden, Korea Republic.
70' SAVED! Conor Thomas against the run of play takes a composed shot from range that Paul has no issue punching it out for a corner.
69' Confirmed Group E: Brazil, Switzerland, Costa Rica, Serbia.
68' Confirmed Group D: Argentina, Iceland, Croatia, Nigeria.
68' Confirmed Group C: France, Australia, Peru, Denmark.
67' Confirmed Group B: Portugal, Spain, Morocco, Iran.
N. Kuqi
Zequinha
66' Substitution José Egas dos Santos Branco Njazi Kuqi
66' Zequinha has been sacrificed and JFC have a corner that Andre Bikey with his massive stature cannot get to the end of. 
65' Confirmed Group A: Russia, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Uruguay.
64' Njazi Kuqi is being readied by Teddy Sheringham as Ashley Westwood looks on from the stands exasperated with the lack of action on the field. 
61' An hour gone in Jamshedpur and some fans of the home side are getting restless. One asks, "Will we get to see our team score this season or we wait till next?"
59' Also, Brazil will play the Swiss and Mumbai City FC head coach's native Costa Rica in Group E.
57' Meanwhile, the 2018 FIFA World Cup draw is underway at the Kremlin. Moscow. Spain and Portugal have been clubbed together in Group B. Hosts Russia welcome Uruguay in Group A. England and Belgium are in Group G.
55' Can Azuka's introduction inject some much needed attacking nous into what is turning out to be a dour game of football?
I. Azuka
K. Belfort
54' Substitution Kervens Fils Belfort Izu Bobo Azuka
49' After that early promise, the game has gone into a lull of sorts. Both teams look wasteful infront of goal and it is a sore sight for the expecting fans here in Jamshedpur.
46' SAVED! Prabir Das sprints his heart out and lobs it inside the box as Robin Singh's volleyed effort is palmed away by Subrata! Action straightaway...
45' We're back for the second half in Jamshedpur. Who will break the deadlock here?
HT: Jamshedpur FC 0-0 ATK.
45' + 1' Two minutes of added time given here in the first ever half of an ISL game in Jamshedpur.
R. Nongrum
E. Lyngdoh
44' Substitution Eugeneson Lyngdoh Rupert Nongrum
43' The blow has taken a toll on Lyngdoh and the India international's night will come to an abrupt end. Nongrum will play wide as Hitesh will be brought in.
40' Five minutes to go for the break and we have had some intriguing action. Eugeneson Lyngdoh was first tackled down by Mehtab and then minutes later, Jerry Mawihmingthanga got a brilliant pass from Doutie but fails to convert from the angle.
32' OFFSIDE! The linesman raises the flag on Hitesh Sharma. Subrata Paul fumbled after Zequinha unleashed a brilliant shot. Hitesh tapped in the ball into the net but the goal has been disallowed. 
31' 30' End to end affair! ATK fails to score from a free-kick, Jamshedpur FC initiated a brilliant counter-attack but Jerry once fails to convert.
27' CHANCE! Belfort intercepts a ball from a hapless looking Tom Thorpe, glides in, shoots, takes a deflection and the ball falls into Jerry's trajectory whose shot only ruffles the side-netting.
26' Hitesh now on the other end of the field, does something similar to Doutie's attempt. Both sides appear to be wasteful in the final third. 
23' WIDE! Memo finds the tidiest of angles to square it towards Doutie and the South African blasts it wide off target against his former side.
20' A corner for Jamshedpur as the flag-kick is floated a bit too high for Farukh inside the box. Wasted opportunity for the hosts. 
18' Cute ball fed to Jerry on the right wing as Keegan fails to keep him on check. Figueras comes off with a timely slide in to play the ball out of danger for ATK.
15' The game has shifted into the midfield as both sides have had some chances to show their shooting prowess. A quarter of an hour gone, ATK have the lion's share of possession but have not been able to make worthy incursions into the Steve Coppell-coached side's half.
11' Great tackle! A great through ball from Jordi for Hitesh who attempts a square pass inside the penalty box but Tiri clears the danger as Jamshedpur FC live on!
8' End to end stuff here in Jamshedpur and Eugeneson had moments ago brought down Jerry for a freekick which Jamshedpur failed to capitalise. 
6' Corner for JFC. Belfort swings it in and Jaaskelainen has no problems to leap and catch it! 
3' There is a change in the formation for ATK. Young Hitesh Sharma has been shifted to the wings and the Portuguese man Zequinha is playing as a shadow striker to Robin Singh.
1' Penalty shout! Keegan trips Doutie and the South African is suspected for simulation. ATK escape danger early on!
1' KICK-OFF! We are underway at the 'Furnace' in the Steel City...
As it stands, JFC and ATK are placed 7th and 9th on the table. JFC are yet to score and the title-holders are yet to win in their first two games.
The JRD Tata Sports Complex will host it's first ISL game ever and the 24,000 gathered tonight are just witnessing the players emerge out of the tunnel.
Two changes for Teddy Sheringham's side. Njazi Kuqi and Debjit Majumder will feature in the bench tonight as Jussi Jaaskelainen makes his ISL bow. Robin Singh will lead the line.
