    Good turn by Chidi there. But Sobrosa gets a nick in.

    And Uga Okpara has gone down withe seemingly an injury. Where was that caused?
  • 28'
    WAS THAT A PENALTY! Moga plays a lovely one two with Mama who whips in a lovely ball for Chidi. It seems Chidi was shoved in the box by Nirmal Chhetri. Chidi thinks so!
  • 27'
    CHANCE! Sueoka goes brilliantly down the left but wastes too much time before releasing the ball. Moga was in.

  • 20'
    Poor play by East Bengal again as Khabra gives away the ball in midfield allowing Penn to break. He goes down in the box claiming to be fouled by Arnab but the referee has none of it.
  • 18'
    Goal James Moga
    GOAL! Thats a poor poor goal to concede. Chidi flicks the ball onto Moga's path but Mehrajuddin had enough time to clear it but his kick into the air results in Moga getting the ball and a thunderous strike gives Barreto no chance!
  • 17'
    JOSIMAR! Step overs galore but he goes wide and his ball into the box reaches Uga before it can reach Penn
  • 17'
    Seems a match of turnovers as both teams wasting possession.
  • 16'
    East Bengal with a corner but comes nothing of it. An off the ball incident involving Luciano who brings down Moga was not noticed by the referee. That could have been a penalty.
  • 14'
    Thumping freekick from James Moga. Tipped over by Barreto.
  • 12'
    Good lofted through ball into the box by Ralte which finds Suoeka perfectly but his side footed poke goes wide of the net.
  • 9'
    Josimar and Penn link up well again but he wastes too much time and his cross is blocked by Raju Gaikwad. He should have passed it to Nabi there.

    Stop start display from both teams as miss passes are galore.
  • 4'
    Josimar leaves it for Penn down the left who puts in a great ball in the box but Robert is there to clear.
