AFC Cup: Bengaluru FC win AFC's Fairplay award

Bengaluru FC might have lost out on the main silverware on the night, but they took home AFC's Fairplay award

For Bengaluru FC, Saturday was a case of so near, yet so far, as they lost out to Air Force Club in the final of the AFC Cup thanks to Hammadi Ahmed's 71st minute winner.

While disappointed at not becoming the first Indian side to etch their name on the trophy on the night, they would take solace from the fact that AFC adjudged them as the winners of the Fairplay award.

Meanwhile, Hammadi Ahmed's sixteen goals made him the winner of the AFC Cup Golden Boot and also made him the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the tournament.
