It was a rather an unimpressive football where the co ordination between the two strikers Chedi and Moga was visulised. Even at the middle of the season these two strikers are not at there peak and there selfishness proved to be negative in the performance of East Bengal.
Armando Colaco while interacting with the media at the post match meeting expressed his dissatisfaction with his team. Though the midfeild leading by Mehtab Hossain were in control of the match and kept the danger man in Churchill midfeild Abdel Hamid Sabana under there close eyes, but the forward passes from Mehtab, Tulunga and Dika were waisted by Chedi and Moga from where the could have scored. Tulunga was the culpit at the flag end of the match where he failed to score following a forward pass from Chedi as Lalit Thapa at his mercy.
Lalit were a busy man today under the Churchill bar and collected a number of cross passes and centres from both the wing to save the citadel of the Goan team. He is adjudged the man of the match rightly. East Bengal are at 19 points from 12 matches where the Fedaration Cup winners Churchill Brothers are with 14 points 15 matches has managed to save the religation.
