Frosinone at  Stadio Sandro Cabassi. It was his 7th goal from 15 appearances in all competitions this season.

Finally in the Indian Super League, 2010 World Cup star Kalu Uche's 62nd minute strike could not prevent Delhi Dynamos from losing 5-1 to Goa at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium. The experienced striker was replaced in the 73rd minute.
