That's it from us for today. Join us tomorrow for more action from the 2017 Federation Cup.

Till then, Goodbye and good night! :)
...
Aizawl FC -  What a club, What a story! They keep on bringing smiles to the faces of every football fan across India.
...
So Aizawl will go through the semis as champions of Group A as it proves to be another night of frustration for East Bengal.
...
An Aizawl side without any foreign players in the side has kept East Bengal at bay here.
...
And Mawia has only one touch of the ball before the referee blows the whistle for full time.
...
90+3' - Aizawl with their last change as well as Danmawia comes in for the dying seconds, replacing Jonathan.
...
90+2' - Nikhil Poojary comes in for East Bengal for Rafique.
...
90+1' - Ralte with a long ranger this time and as has been the story of this game, he can't keep that down.
...
90' - EAST BENGAL AGAIN!!

Robin Singh outmuscles his man on the right. Cuts it in for Plaza and he gets it all wrong yet again.
...
89' - WHAT A SAVE!!

Puia with an astounding save from point blank range. Plaza with his artistry had crafted an opening which falls for Jairu. He gets a vicious shot away but Puia is there with a brilliant reflex save.
...
88' - Muankima again. Gets past two EB defenders but a third one in the form of Arnab is there to sees his threat out.
...
87' - Great turn in the middle by Ralte but William is there. All hands for the course now for Aizawl.

Muankima leads the counter but his cross his deflected into the safe arms of the keeper,
...
86' - East Bengal with the ball again. They are desperate for a win here. Narayan Das' cross is first fisted away. Comes out to Jairu and he shoots but wide.
...
85' -  Robin Singh this time charges down the left. Tries to cross that in for Plaza but he slices it and that has gone into touch.
...
84' - OFF THE LINE!

Corner comes in and that is punched away. Das crosses it from the left and it falls to Plaza. His header has beaten the goalkeeper but he can't beat the defender on the line.
...
83'- Mallick with a first time ball into the box. Rafique with a great first touch and turn. But what a great tackle by Renga there.
...
82' - Another ball down the middle looking for Jairu this time. He has run himself to the ground for the team. But can't get to this.
...
80' -  East Bengal with a change now!

A furious Wedson Anselme goes off for Robin Singh.
...
79' - Freekick in a dangerous area for Aizawl. William deemed to have been fouled.

Muankima with the strike and he gets that all wrong.
...
78' - CHANCE!!

Another Aizawl counter attack. William plays in Muanlima. He turns and takes a shot on goal. But again high and wide.
...
77'- Aizawl on the break. And that is probably the slowest one you will see. Three on three and Thanga is lost in the middle. No decoy runs and the defence keeps on backing off. 


He takes a shot but that is wide.
...
76' - William twists and turn and tries to make something happen for Aizawl on the break. But his pass is wayward.
...
75' - Second forced change for Aizawl.

Lalbiak Thanga comes in for Ashutosh Mehta.
...
74' - Action on the pitch resumes. Ralte swings one in from the right and it is Narayan Das with a great run at the far post. Pulls the ball back into the danger zone. But Aizawl clear.
...
74' - And Ashutosh Mehta is going off. Is that going to be the end of the game for him? Looks likely.
