  • This is Kaustav Bera and I am signing off. Tune in to GOAL about two hours later as we would bring you the World Cup draw LIVE.
  • Meanwhile, after a run of four games unbeaten including two wins, United SC go crashing! A disjointed midfield effort really had Eelco Schattorie frustrated.
  • That was a classy performance from Mohun Bagan as finally they put to bed the numerous chances that they routinely enjoyed.

    Odafa with all the hard work down the left as he beats Deepak Mondal before squaring it to Christopher who was lurking outside the box. It seems Hasan had taken his eye off him and he has enough time to pull the trigger. The grounded effort should have been kept out by Ishan Debnath.
