I-League team of the round 7 - East Bengal and Pailan Arrows players dominate the line-up

Goal.com summarizes all the action of the I-League and selects a team from the best performers of round 7...

Round 7 turned out to be one in which defensive prudence took over, as 4 cleansheets were recorded while two other games ended in a 1-1 stalemate.

The first of those was between Prayag United and Salgaocar FC, as the free-scoring Kolkatan outfit were pegged back to 1-1 by David Booth’s struggling outfit.

Pailan Arrows meanwhile moved level with Mohun Bagan, as they recorded their third win of the season, overcoming Sporting Clube de Goa’s challenge 1-0.

Speaking of the Mariners, their “new era” under Karim Bencherifa did not get off to the best of starts, as they were held by a resurgent Mumbai FC to a 1-1 draw.

Air India now prop up the bottom of the table as a resilient showing by the Airmen was undone by a 90th minute winner by Joaquim Abranches for Dempo SC in Goa.

ONGC fared no better than their fellow Mumbai-based side, as East Bengal snuffed out questions about their profligacy in-front of goal in the most emphatic of manners, thumping the Oilmen 5-0.

Shillong Lajong too were undone by a late goal, as Churchill Brothers relied on an Akram Moghrabi wonder strike to take away all the 3 points and stun the home crowd into silence.

In a game characterized by goal-keeping gaffes, Pune FC were held to a 2-2 draw by United Sikkim in an entertaining game in which Jeje Lalpekhlua also missed a penalty for the hosts.
