East Bengal 2-0 Calcutta Customs Club, FULL TIME


17:03 (IST)16 AUG 2017

Thanks for joining us today. We will be back again for more action from the Calcutta Football League.

Till then, good bye. Have a good day.

17:02 (IST)16 AUG 2017

We have seen foreign defenders making all the difference in set pieces so far. 

For Mohun Bagan, it was Kingsley's header with led to the opener for Kromah and today it is Mitchell who ended up with the two goals.

17:01 (IST)16 AUG 2017

And we are not surprised that Mitchell has been declared as the Man of The Match.

17:01 (IST)16 AUG 2017

This was one game where the set pieces made all the difference. Great deliveries from Samad Ali and Cavin Lobo and Mitchell of all people was the one to benefit from it.

16:58 (IST)16 AUG 2017


The long whistle blows and that's all. East Bengal remain at the top with six points from two games.

16:57 (IST)16 AUG 2017

90+5' - East Bengal still looking for more as Samad Ali goes forward on another forward run from his right-back spot. 

But he has been shoved off the ball.

16:55 (IST)16 AUG 2017


Mithcell again. Lobo with a great ball there and finds Mitchell who lost his man completely with his run and this is a dream game for the centre-back.

16:54 (IST)16 AUG 2017

90+2' - Samad Ali Mallick flattened by a body check from Amit Roy.

16:54 (IST)16 AUG 2017

Five minutes of time added now!

16:52 (IST)16 AUG 2017

90' - Surabuddin fouled and Gurwinder takes the free kick. He punts it as far as he can send it.

16:51 (IST)16 AUG 2017

89' -  Desperation time and Customs are trying to make something of this.

16:50 (IST)16 AUG 2017

87' - BRANDON!

A long into the box for Suhair. Well brought down and then he tries to tee off the onrushing Brandon. But his shot is not really one to talk about. Low and off target.

16:49 (IST)16 AUG 2017

86' - Great work from Suhair and Mawia on the right. Great ball from the right but no one there in a Red and Gold shirt.

16:48 (IST)16 AUG 2017

85' - SHOT!

Lobo on the front foot and gets a shot away from the right across the goal. But his shot is weak and off the mark.

16:47 (IST)16 AUG 2017

84' - East Bengal with another free kick. Lobo tries another variation but he didn't get much out of it this time.

16:45 (IST)16 AUG 2017

83' - Great run from Samad Ali down the right. Dipped his shoulder and tried to get past Sumit Ghosh but is just a bit too heavy. Goes out for a GK.

16:44 (IST)16 AUG 2017

82' - CC clear but Gurwinder gets to it first. Another free kick for Khalid Jamil's men.

16:43 (IST)16 AUG 2017

81' -  Suhair down on the pitch at the moment. A foul from Ampong sees the man from Kerala floored at the moment.

16:42 (IST)16 AUG 2017

79' - Hawladar with another attack down the right. And he tries to create something but fails to do so.

16:39 (IST)16 AUG 2017


East Bengal finally with the goal. Mitchell with the goal via a header. 

Short corner from Lobo to Samad Ali. His ball is a great one and Mitchell heads it towards goal. Priyam Singh who had committed to coming out at first was caught in no man's land.

16:39 (IST)16 AUG 2017

76' - Corner again for East Bengal as Al Amna shot is deflected away.

16:38 (IST)16 AUG 2017


Nearly. Good turn and shot across the goal from the right. But what a save from Priyam Singh. The rebound nearly fell to Brandon but before reaches that, it was cleared.

16:37 (IST)16 AUG 2017

73' - Crowd becoming impatient with the EB team now.

Mawa with the ball from the right and Willis Plaza tried to flick it on but wide of the mark.

16:35 (IST)16 AUG 2017

72' - Suman Dutta comes on for Sanchayan Samaddar for CC!

16:35 (IST)16 AUG 2017


East Bengal again down the right and this time it is Suhair. He does well to keep the ball in and get the cross in. His ball in finds Brandon at the edge of the box but that is asking too much from the winger to generate all the pace from 16 yards out. On target but easy for the keeper.

16:33 (IST)16 AUG 2017

70' - SHOT!

Al Amna plays Plaza down the right who shows his pace before cutting in and taking a shot with his left. But that is straight at the keeper.

16:32 (IST)16 AUG 2017

69' - Suhair's shot is weak and blocked away. 

Ball now comes Willis Plaza at the back post. But he commits a foul.

16:31 (IST)16 AUG 2017

68' -  Joseph again is not amused as he is called for a foul on Mitchell at the back.

16:30 (IST)16 AUG 2017

67' -  Another free kick there. A foul on Plaza mean Lobo will make his presence felt immediately.

But his delivery from the set piece is disappointing.

16:29 (IST)16 AUG 2017

66' - Cavin Lobo comes on for Richard Costa. 

Khalid Jamil makes his first move in the game.

16:28 (IST)16 AUG 2017

65' - A CC player down on the field. Play has been stopped.

16:28 (IST)16 AUG 2017

64' - SAVE!

Al Amna with the shot and that falls to Suhait he turns and tries to get a show away but scuffs that. Easy for the keeper.

16:26 (IST)16 AUG 2017

63' - LUCKY!

Long ball from Customs. Joseph was on the charge and to the naked eye Barreto had claimed it outside the box. Joseph is despondent but the assistant referee keeps his flag down.

16:25 (IST)16 AUG 2017

62' -  East Bengal with another corner. Comes out to Samad on the right. Plays another ball in but the GK comes out and plucks that out of thin air.

16:24 (IST)16 AUG 2017

61' - SHOT!

Chullova cuts back from the left and lets one fly. But that one really is not going to threaten the Customs' goal.

16:23 (IST)16 AUG 2017

60' - EB on the break after Joseph threatened down the left. Willis Plaza shows some great acceleration but his understanding with Brandon is lacking and that attack fizzles out.

16:21 (IST)16 AUG 2017

59' -  Samad Ali down the right. He gets the ball in from the flank but a weak one. Straight for the keeper.

16:20 (IST)16 AUG 2017

58' - CLOSE!

Sumit Ghosh with the effort and that was placed for the left-hand top corner of the ball. But that is inches away from giving CC the unlikely lead.

16:19 (IST)16 AUG 2017


Great leap from Sumit Ghoas finds Joseph who tried to take a shot on the volley. Mitchell came across and he has deemed to have fouled the forward. Yellow card for the EB defender. 

16:18 (IST)16 AUG 2017

55' - OFFSIDE!

Richard Costa with the ball over the top for Mawia. He gets to the ball but he broke the line a bit too early there and the flag goes up.

16:17 (IST)16 AUG 2017

53' -  Joseph on the charge for Customs but Mitchell is there to shepherd the ball away.

16:16 (IST)16 AUG 2017

52' - Suhair nearly breaks free as a long lob is not dealt with by CC. But they get the ball away. That could have been dangerous.

16:15 (IST)16 AUG 2017

51' - CLOSE! Hawladar down the right gets to the ball. Delivers the ball to a dangerous area. Barreto gets his hands to it but not really with much conviction. The rebound, however, falls to Samad who clears it immediately.

16:13 (IST)16 AUG 2017

50' - Ball in from Al Amna. The keeper comes out but fails to get to the ball but EB can't make the most of it as it goes for a GK.

16:13 (IST)16 AUG 2017

49' - John Ampong with another foul and again on Al Amna. A yellow card is shown after the CC foreigner catches the Syrian's heel.

16:11 (IST)16 AUG 2017

48' - East Bengal again down the right but the ball for Samad is again overhit and that goes out a goalkick.

16:10 (IST)16 AUG 2017

47' - East Bengal with another attack down the right this time.

Samad Ali Mallick is way up and gets a ball into the middle. Mawia with the header on target but that was comfortable for Priyam Singh in goal.

16:09 (IST)16 AUG 2017

46' -  East Bengal down the left but the ball in is weak.

CC get it underway and they try an audacious effort to catch Luis Barreto off his line. Shot from midline and that was on target but Barreto catches it with ease.

16:07 (IST)16 AUG 2017

And we are off!

16:07 (IST)16 AUG 2017

The players are out and we are moments away from the action.
