PEEP! PEEP! PEEEEEEP!

Mohun Bagan 2 - 1 Colombo; go through to the next stages of the AFC Cup 4-2 on aggregate.

The first half was a stroll in the park for Bagan and they killed the game with two goals - one scored and the other created by the effervescent Sony Norde. 

Zarwan came on and added some spark to Colombo, and Yapo scored a goal that will have very few equals in this competition, or any other - but it was all too little too late. 

Congratulations to Mohun Bagan, Commisserations to Colombo FC. 

'twas fun covering this, thanks for the company!

Anirudh Menon signing out. 

Toodle-ooo
...
95' Shilton Paul takes a goalkick....
...
94' Zarwan races forward full of intent and purpose. Then passes it two yards to Anas Edathodika. *facepalm* as the kids would say it these days. 
...
93' Souvik C takes a turn bombarding forward, and he lifts one into the box - Jeje tries an acrobatic effort at goal... that would have been SOME finish... but he can't connect cleanly enough and it's collected by Imran.
...
91' Shouvik G tries to pick up Balwant, but he plays it straight to Mohideen. The midfielder runs forward and tries to play in Olofin, but the Nigerian is caught offside. 
...
90' The ball is being passed around between the teams faster than an illegal 1000 rupee note. Four minutes more before Bagan can seal their progress in the AFC Cup
...
Yapo mesmerised the Bagan defence and twinkle-toed past four, FOUR, defenders before hammering it low into the corner. The Ivorian celebrated with a mini-CR7 type jump... and why not? SUPERB GOAL, that, and pride has well and truly been restored for the Yellow Submarines. 
...
87' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOALL!! YAPO!!! 
...
86' And they are playing better than they have for the duration of this match. Good to see that these kind of things matter. Pride and all that.
...
85' Souvik G goes bombing down the left yet again, but this time Charitha does not let him overlap and Colombo mount another attack. They are playing for pride here.
...
83' Colombo win a freekick and Yapo whips in a dangerous looking ball, but Olofin clatters into Shilton Paul and the ref does not like that one bit. 
...
82' SUBSTITUTION Yusa OFF, Azharuddin Malik ON
...
81' Balwant looks to make up for his weak penalty, but he overcompensates and sends the ball into the Hooghly with an almighty thwack.
...
80' Colombo come forward, and win another throw in Charitha territory. His throw creates confusion in the box once again, but Anas does well to slide in and whack it clear. 
...
The striker went low to the keeper's right, but it lacked both direction and power. Sanjoy Sen looks like he is entering Antonio Conte "I'll murder you" territory
...
78' BALWANT MISSES! HORRIBLE PENALTY! GOOD SAVE FROM IMRAN!
...
Souvik G whips the ball into the box, and the ball ricochets around the box before Afeel handles it. A softer penalty conceded you will not see. 
...
75' Balwant is released on the left by a raking ball from Halder, and.... PENALTY FOR BAGAN!! 
...
72' WOOF! Jeje Lalpekhlua has a pop at goal, and boy! we know he can give it a good ol' whack. The ball whistles just above the bar - AIFF's Player of the Year 2016 is not yet on the scoresheet. 
...
71' SUBSTITUTIONFOR CFC this time as Nizam goes off for de Silva. Yusa tries to take Charitha on down the left, but the right back likes defending him far more than he liked it with Norde. He shepherds the ball, and the Japanese, out of play.
...
70' SUBSTITUTION FOR MB - Duffy OFF, Raynier ON
...
69' Having gotten their breath back. Bagan stroll it around with contemptuous ease before Souvik G tries to release Balwant Singh down the left.. He is bullied off by Yapo. The Punjabi does not like that one bit and takes the Ivorian down - show him who's boss and all that.
...
68' Chameera gets clattered into by Bikramjit Sr and it's an opportunity for everyone to get their breath back. 
...
67' Yapo has been everywhere today. The Ivorian runs into the half, and cuts in before unleashing a shot... attempting to unleash a shot. It's well directed, but there's no power behind that, and Paul collects rather comfortably.
...
66' Not for long - Olofin handles the ball, again, and it's a free kick for Bagan in their own half.
