Tamil Nadu meets Punjab

Amitabha Das Sharma

KOLKATA: Tamil Nadu takes on Punjab in the semifinals of the Santosh Trophy on Friday.

Having stunned the host and 29-time titlist Bengal in the last quarterfinal league match on its journey to the semifinals, Tamil Nadu's confidence will be on a high. A draw in the opening quarterfinal league match against Delhi is the only setback for Tamil Nadu, which has showed good cohesion as a team in staying undefeated so far.

On the other hand Punjab will take heart from the team's doggedness especially in the big comeback it made after losing 0-3 against Goa.

In the other semifinal, defending champion Goa faces Bengal. Goa has been able to maintain its form with an all-win record in the quarterfinals, a record that none other side in the tournament possesses. Ever since Bengal won its last title in 1999 beating Goa 5-0, the latter has bettered its head-to-head record in the last decade.
