Ozbey snatched the winner for the FC Goa in the 90th minute after Shaikh Jewel Raja (72nd) equalised for the hosts. The Dynamos were put ahead as early as in the seventh minute of the match by skipper Mads Junker.

The win takes FC Goa up the table with four points from five matches, while Delhi remained on six points from five games. FC Goa coach Zico made three changes bringing in Mandar Rao Desai, Romeo Fernandes and Jewel Raja and the move paid off as the trio put the opponents under tremendous pressure, especially in the second half to score the stunning win.

Despite the win, the home team will lament losing their playmaker Andre Santos, who had to be substituted after picking up an injury while going for a tackle with Stijin Houben.
