After a stimulating win at Imphal against Neroca FC the other day, East Bengal started their second game high on confidence. It took only 12 minutes on the clock when Lalrindika Ralte dellivered an immaculate free kick from the right for Jobby Justin, who fired a brilliant header to silence the home fans and made it 1-0.
