I-League 2017 - Churchill Brothers 1-2 Mumbai FC - 5 Talking Points
But Victorino’s equaliser and Karan Sawhney’s injury time effort ensured Mumbai left Goa with 3 crucial points.
#1 Brandon Fernandes scores a gorgeous free kick
If David Beckham was in the stands, he would have definitely been proud. The home side were awarded a free-kick in a dangerous area inside the opening five minutes. Captain Keenan Almeida released Clifford with a defence-splitting through ball, who was fouled cynically by Pratik Chowdhary just outside the box.
Up stepped 22-year-old Brandon Fernandes – a two-step run-up and he wonderfully nestled the ball into the top right corner, much to the delight of the sparse home crowd. Brandon made the free-kick look easy but in reality, he had a task at hand.
Getting the ball over and above the wall from close range is never an easy task. The midfielder displayed great technique to side-foot his shot past keeper, Kattimani who had no chance.
