Barasat: A good day for Mohammedan Sporting Club as they registered a hard fought 1-0 win against FCI in their first match of the Kolkata Football League at the Barasat Stadium today. Against a foreigner less FCI it took 81 minutes for the black and white brigade to break the deadlock of FCI. After receiving a ball from substitute KP Rahul, Prosenjit Chakraborty scored a stunner with his left foot. Ahead of that Amirul’s shot was saved by the FCI defender on the goal line. Not only that, Bazie Armand received a ball from Jewel Raja’s free-kick, but his shot returned after hitting the cross-bar.
But Mohammedan played really well in the second half than the first. After the arrival of Amirul as the substitute in place of Jewel Raja Mohammedan started playing more attacking football.
Earlier the first-half ended goalless. Mohammedan were doing their attack continuously but under the leadership of veteran Deepak Mondal FCI’s defence was hard to break. On the 38th minute of the game while trying to stop Mohammedan’s forward Princewell Emeka, he went straight into Mohammedan’s goalkeeper and got an injury. Due to this he was forced to leave the field as well. In the second-half Mohammedan capitalized on it and scored the goal to win their first game of the league.
