Odisha breezed into the Finals of the 37th Sub-Junior National Football Championship as they thumped Madhya Pradesh 3-1 in the semi-finals on April 21, 2016 at the Ambedkar Stadium in Delhi. A brilliant second half performance by Odisha led them to an easy win as Odisha came back from a goal down to edge past Madhya Pradesh, after a goalless first half.


In the 80th minute Odisha took the lead as Dula scored to make it 2-1, before Bekey Oram added another in the dying embers of the match as the full-time scoreline read 3-1 in Odisha’s favour. With this win, Odisha progress into the Finals of the Championship and will face the West Bengal.
