IFA Shield: Liverpool-DSK Academy cruise past Mohammedan Sporting

The Pune-based academy occupies the second position in Group B with AIFF Elite academy topping the charts…

Liverpool FC International Academy-DSK Shivajians picked their first win in the 120th IFA Shield as they downed Mohammedan Sporting 3-0 at the Kalyani Stadium, Kolkata, on Saturday.

Lallianzuala Chhangte scored a couple of goals (43’ and 51’) with Prasanth Karuthedathukunni’s goal (36’) sandwiched in between.

Prasanth went on a solo run from inside his own half before getting past at least four Mohammedan players to slot the ball home after the half hour mark.

The least was doubled with Sairuat found Chhangte in space who make no mistake to apply the finishing touch and put his side in a commanding position.

Six minutes after the re-start, Vanlalremkima’s delivery from a free-kick saw Chhangte’s diving header find the back of the net to give them total control of the proceedings as they saw off the Mohammedan challenge with ease.
