Bengaluru, March 14: FC Goa might have crashed out of the ISL after a 4-1 aggregate loss to Chennaiyin FC but co-owner Virat Kohli consoled them highlighting the fight they showed to reach this far in the tournament.


Chennai defeated Goa 3-0 on Tuesday to set up a title clash with Bengaluru FC on March 17 at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium.


"Disappointed that we couldn't make it to the finals, but great courage shown by the boys!Congratulations on a splendid season to Sergio and the team. @FCGoaOfficial #ForcaGoa #WeTogether #HeroISL" - said Kohli through Twitter.

Earlier, Chennaiyin FC reached their second Indian Super League final in three years as they outsmarted FC Goa 3-0 (4-1 aggregate) at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Chennai, on Tuesday (March 13).

The tie was evenly poised after the first leg ended 1-1 but a brace from Jeje Lalpekhlua (26 and 90 minutes) and one goal from Dhanpal Ganesh (29 minutes) was enough for Chennaiyin FC to seal a place in the final.
