Mohammean Sporting Club of Kolkata entered the final of the 118th IFA Shield after 1990 defeating United Sports Club in an exciting encounter at Yubabharati Kriangan today........... Jaydip Dasgupta- LIVE MATCH COMMENTARY BELOW

The match may be reckoned as the best match of this year's IFA Sheild as both the teams had the chances of scoring. The ball rolled from one corner to another for the entire 120 minutes. Mohammedan had the better of the exchanges and played some positive passes in the middle third of the United deep defense but it was Bello Razak who was the tower of strength in the United central defense.

The drama arises when a shot from Ranty Martins hit the post at the dying stages of the schuduled 90 minutes. Penn Orji's push was cleared by Sangram at the 43rd minute from the goal line. The goal came in the 104th minute when Penn scored following a pass from Rahim Nabi. Penn went inside the 18 yards and places past Sangram at the far corner of the net.

Mohammedhan has showcased an improved performance in the IFA sheild after Fedaration Cup, and no wonder the inclusion of Sanjoy Sen in the dugout has changes the complextion totally. Mohammedhan will play against the Dhanmandi in the final on Saturday evening.

118th IFA SHIELD TOURNAMENT - 2014.



08.02.2014: MOHUN BAGAN 0-1 SKJ. DHANMUNDI FC (YBK - FT..)

MMB: Silton, Aibor, Eche, Kingshuk, Preetam, Denson, Yusa, Zakir, Pankaj, Ram, Sabeeth.
DHN: Ziaur, Nasiruddin, Yamin, Linkon, Mamun, Sony, Sohel, Yasin, Emeka, Didarul, Wedson
REF : MB Santosh Kumar

East Bengal Club will meet against SK Jamal Dhanmandi in the first semi final of the 118th IFA Sheild football tournament on the 11th of February. At Kolkata today Dhanmundi defeated Mohun Bagan by a solitary goal scored by Sony Noodi to reach the semifinal as the second team from Group B.............. LIVE COMMENTARY In BELOW

It was in the 23 th minute of the first session when referee Santosh Kumar awarded a free kick at the top of the 18 yards following an illegal tackel by Denson Debadasa. A truly world class free kick by the Haitian striker Sony Nordi by his right foot deeped inside the goal with Shilton and Eche was a mere spectator at the goalline. Sony had played in different clubs of the world even in the B team of oca Juniors, is the highest paid footballer in Bangaldesh. Mohan Bagan had their chances in both the halfs but were bit unlucky in converting.
In the 32nd minute of the first session a left footer of Sabeth following a pass from Pankaj Moula hit the post and went out. But it was a gift came infront of Eche in the 83rd minute of the match when he failed to capitalize. The Dhanmundi custodian failed to clear a ball and passed straight to Eche but the later failed to place in an absolutely open net. In spite the ball hit the post and was cleared by a defender.
An absence of a leader in the Mariners midfeild was observed throught out the match. Mohun Bagan initiated some attacks but it had hardly created any impact in the Dhanmandi deep defense. On the contary Dhanmandi concentrated on passing football and at one time they played twenty to twenty five passes between themselves at the middle third of Mohun Bagan.
These team from Bangladesh are not so compact in their deep defense which has been proved through out the tournament, but Mohun Bagan failed to utilise the situation. Karim applied his master store at the second session when he placed Eche as a striker and brought in Rawilson in deep defense.
In fact these Mohun Bagan side are not so confident and capable to combact the strong challenges from the oppornants. One should forget the story of 1911 when Mohun Bagan created a history by winning in IFA Sheild in the pre independence period. The chances of winning a trophy are in vain now for the Mariners as their position in the I league are not at all impressive.

Former Champion United SC maintain their good form in the 118th IFA Shield and It was a hard-fought, hard-earned victory for United SC over Busan Sun Moon, 2-1 at the Salt Lake Stadium, Kolkata on tonight. Md. Rafiq and Ranti Martins scored for United SC in the 41st minute and 86th minute of the game.

This was the first match for the Kolkata side after Eelco Schattorie, their Dutch coach parted ways with them. The team tried their mission of adapting to life after Eelco, as Anjan Nath, the interim manager fielded an experienced side to counter the foreign opponents.

Bello Rasaq, United's ever dependable defender made his return to the action after a long break due to sickness, while Ranti Martins and Eric Brown combining upfront.

With C.K.Vineeth opting for pastures anew, Snehasish Chakraborty, the veteran footballer was included in the first eleven, while Asif Mohammed came back in his usual position of a holding midfielder with Souvik Chakraborty making way for him. He linked up with Lalkamal Bhowmick at the middle of the pitch.

The game started in good tempo, with United having its share of possession in the early minutes. Ranti Martins had a golden opportunity in the 12th minute, but he failed to place the home though he had only the travelling custodian to beat.

The away team also tried their luck as they pulled the trigger from long range once before having a good chance from a corner. These efforts, however, were not enough to break the deadlock.

The first goal of the match came in the last minutes of the first half, when Dhanachandra Singh fed Mohammed Rafique with a ball well inside the box and the midfielder was calm enough to slot it into the target, claiming the lead for his team.

The joy didn't last long, as United conceded a silly goal just before the breather, due to a lapse of concentration in their own half. In the Second half both team tried to score and it was Eric, who just missed the chance in the 49th minute of the game. Busan Sunmoon also create many chances but United defence and young custodian Avhijit finally save their team.

United SC were quick to take advantage of their opponents' lack of concentration, Ranti Martins punishing them with a smart finish after 86th minutes to fetch his team the first straight win through the nice pass from Eric Brown and Eric finally earn the Man-of-the-Match award.

In IFA SHIELD 29th Jan match Mohammedan SC drew 1-1 with United Sikkim but they protested about a Nigerian player of United Sikkim. Mohammedan SC may earn 3 points and 3 goals as award from IFA.
FT: Match end. United SC beat South Korean side Sunmoon FC by 2-1. Last year the beat Doportivo Saprissa by same margin.
85': GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL United Score Through Ranti Martins.
80': Same scoeline 1-1, United is going all out action.
70': Still scoreline is 1-1.
HT : 1-1 is the score line.
44': GOAAAAAAAAAAAL Bhusan Sunmoon scored by Jersey No 27 - KIM JONG WOO.

REPORT - jAYDIP dASGUPTA : SK Jamal Dhnmandi of Bangladesh are into the final of the118th IFA Sheild in their maiden appreance .At Kolkata today they defeated East Bengal Club by a convincing margin of 3-0 in an almost one sided match and will meet Mohammedhan Sporting in the final on the 15th of February.
Dhanmandi proved themselves superior than Red and Gold in all departments and were leading by a brace at the breather.It was really a frustrating performace by East Bengal who failed to combact the sharp Dhanmundi's attack . Dhanmundi played a lots of passes between themselves and utilised both the wings and were like a tornado in the Red and Gold deep defense. Emeka opened the account for Dhanmandi in the 22nd minute when he nods pass Gurpit Singh Sandhu following a centre from the right wing.
The Haitaian striker Sony Nody increased the tally in the 37th minute after recieving a pass from Emeka. Sony went inside the danger zone of East Bengal beating Arnab in sheer speed and places at the far corner of the net. In fact the Red and Gold deep defence had hardly any answer to give to the Dhanmandi attacking force spearheaded by Sony Nody. Wedson completed the tally in the 67th minute when his grounder deflected off Raju's feet and beat Gurpit who has no answer to response.
It was quite surprise to see that why Armando Colaco opted for Roberts, Abhishek and Abranches leaving Saumik, Lobo and Khabra in the dugout. Though Khabra was replaced by Subodh but it was quite late in reacting. The East Bengal midfeild not only failed to block the Dhanmandi's attack but acted negatively while passing positive passes in the upfront.
Dhanmandi is the second team from Bangladesh after Dhaka Mohammedhan Sporting who will going to play the IFA Sheild final.

Last Year's Runners Up East Bengal started this year's IFA Shield campaign with a hard fought 1-1 draw with Sun Moon FC (Busan) at Vidysagar Krirangan, Barasat today. Both teams split points following the game. The visitors started the match at a fast pace and shocked the 28 times winners East Bengal with an early goal in the 6th minute when Gim Dae Han culminated a bout of quick passing with a low strike which completely foxed East Bengal custodian Abhra Mondal.

The opening session was dominated by the youthful Koreans who impressed with quick short passing and fast interchanging of positions. The Red and Golds only opportunity to equalise was wasted by tluanga. East Bengal came back strongly in the second half and dished out an attacking display.

Head Coach Armando Colaco's two changes Mehtab Hossein for Ryuji Sueoka and Dika for Joaquim galvanised the team into attacking actions. Eventually James Moga restored parity in the 78th minute when he tapped in a Chidi Edeh assist. Arnab Mondal and Subodh Kumar were booked inthe match.

EAST BENGAL TO FACE DNANMUNID FC (Bangladesh) IN SIMI FINAL TOMORROW
IFA SHIELD 2014 East Bengal vs Geylang United.. 10.02.2014: www.kolkatafootball.com : East Bengal Club of Kolkata will going to face SK Jamal Dhanmundi of Bangladesh in the first semi final of the 118th IFA Sheild football tournament at Yuba bharati Kriangan tomorrow. East Bengal were the runners up last year, while this is Dhanmandi's maiden appreance in the oldest football tournament of Asia.

East Bengal are the Group A champions has displayed an improved performance till now. Though they will be crippled in the absense of Uga Opara and Mehtab Hossain, the utimate choise in Armando's first eleven. But the inclusion of Raju Gaiwkad along with Arnab Mondal in central defense has proved to be useful and compact.... CLICK 4 VOTE : East Bengal vs Dhanmundi FC - IFA Shield Semi.

Armando Colaco has lot of choices in his midfeild, with Lobo and Dika the two young midfeilders has proved their class time and again. What the Red and Gold requires is the conversion of the chances in right moment. Moga has regain his form and are scoring regularly in the important matches.

The combination of the of Cheddi and Moga are really proving fruitfull in the Group League matches of the IFA Sheild. More over the CFL Champions will be in an advantageous position as they are playing in the home ground in front of their home crowd.

Dhanmandi were the runners up in Group B, had won their last match against Mohan Bagan. Dhnmandi are having a strong attacking force and a well combined midfeild. But it has been observed that they are not so compact in their defense organization. The wing backs are slow in reacting and the central defenders are in a same line in sereval occasions.

Sony Noodi is the spearhead of their attack and this Haitain striker has the ability to transform the course of the game by his individual brillance. The midfeild is being controlled by Mamunul Islam who can work tirelessly and has the egility of sending the accurate passes to the up front especially to Sony and Emeka. This team from Bangladesh plays number of passes between themselves and slow down the pace of the match as and when required.

So, a lot will depend on the statigies of Armando and Josefh Akuchi, the young Nizerian coach of Dhanmundi. The team management of Dhanmundi has already announced for a lucrative incentive if the team entered the final in their maiden appreance.

MOHUN BAGAN VS DHANMUNDI FC - who will qualify in Semi final?

06.01.2014: Jaydip Dasgupta: Who will qualify as a second team from Group B in the IFA Shield semifinal ? Mohun Bagan needs a point to qualify into the semifinals of the 118th IFA Sheild. Against their arch rival Mohammedan SC they drew in their second Group league match which make their task rather tough in the last match against the strong Banglash Premier League top team SK Jamal Dhanmandi FC Ltd. On the contray Dhanmandi won their second match against United Sikkim by 3-1 riding on a brace of their Nigerian striker Emeka.

So the last match in Group B between Mohun Bagan and Dhanmandi will play a decisive role to select the second semifinalist as Mohammedan Sporting had already qualified to play as the Group champion with 7 points in their kitty. The posponed match of 30th January between Mohun Bagan and Dhanmundi which was schedule to play at Barasat has been changed by IFA to Salt Lake Stadium on 8th February from 3.00 PM oneards.

ifa shield 2014 kolkatafootball.com

At the end of the second round the Mariners are marginally ahead against their opponents with four points. Sk Jmal Dhanmandi are on three points but are having a two goal difference. Dhanmandi needs a win while Mohun Bagan requires a point to qualify in the Semi Final. Dhanmandi is a stong side with a lot of variations while attacking although they lost 1-2 to Mohammedan Sporting in first match. There is a cohesion and combination on team game while attacking. The performance of the Mariners in the IFA Sheild are not at all impressive so far.

There is a lot of gap in the central defense and these has been proved time and again against Mohammedan today. Mohun Bagan was lucky in several occasions and their Brazilian striker Josimar waisted the chances even when the Mohun Bagan goalkeeper Monotosh Ghosh was at his mercy. Except for once Mohun Bagan had hardly any chances from which they can convert. More over their Nigerian Goal Machine Odafa Okolie who came to play in the 2nd half after an injury but he was not fit for the game as well and again he suffered injury during the match.

So, Karim Benchirifa will have plan his options in the next two days in order to give a strong challenge against Dhanmundi on Saturday afternoon.

In fact it was Mohammedan who can convert in five occasion if the easiest chances were not missed by Josimar, Penn and Nabi . The strategy of Sanjoy worked as he has used Rahesh Mashi and Manish Maithani as a blocker in font of his central defense to combact the passes of Wedson and Mamunul . Sony Nordy were under the shadow of Nabi and Nirmal as the duo did allow him any space to react.

The match was well supervised by Santosh Kumar who had shown the Red Card to Sony Nordy and Luciano Sabrosa for rough play at the 82nd minute of the match.

Dhanmundi will rely on their three Masketiars in the upfront. Sony Nordy has proved his brilliance in the matches against East Bengal and Mohun Bagan.He along with Emeka Darlington has the ability of creating dangers even in the set pieces. Wedson generally operates from behind along with Mamunul Islam. Mamunul leads the Bangladesh National team can work tirelessly has the agility of sending accurate final passes.
