Mohun Bagan starts the CFL with a 3-0 win Lalawmpuia score 2 goals while Branco scores the third against Peerless. Mohun Bagan were in an attacking mode under new coach Kareem from the very first and got first goal within 2 minutes off a long throw from Odafa which beat all defenders and went straight to Lalampuia who just pushed the ball past goalkeeper, a great start to this year’s premier league. Bagan then pressed more and got second goal off a brilliant threw pass from Ishfaq which found Lalampuia who finished the ball with ease past goalkeeper, a brilliant moves resulted this goal. However, after the goal Mariners slowed the pace of the game and made few mistakes and Peerless tried to attack but could not do much because of flawless defending especially by Odafa and Vashan. Odafa was brilliant today.
In 2nd half, Mohun Bagan brought in Tulunga and after that attacked more and created many chances but unfortunately could not score. Lalampuia and Lalkamal missed chances. Branco scored the 3rd goal off a brilliant Barreto pass which he finished brilliantly. Overall a great start to the season.
