Durand Cup 2022: Mohammedan open with 3-1 win against champions FC Goa, WATCH

Kolkata football giants Mohammedan Sporting began their 131st Indian Oil Durand Cup campaign with a thumping 3-1 win over defending champions FC Goa, in the tournament opener at Kolkata’s Vivekanada Yuba Bharati Krirangan (VYBK) on Tuesday (August 16). Muhammed Nemil opened the scoring for the champions in the 34th minute of the first half with a wonder goal, his second such effort in two years, but the home team came back strong in the second half to first equalise through Pritam Singh (48’) and then go ahead with six minutes of regulation time left through substitute Faslu Rahman.

Talisman Marcus Joseph put the icing on the cake with a third in the third minute of stoppage time. Placed in Group A alongside Bengaluru FC, Jamshedpur FC and the Indian Air Force, both teams needed a win to ensure a probable top-two finish to qualify for the knockouts. Mohammedan coach Andrey Chernyshov will certainly return the happier of the two, seeing both his first eleven and bench performing with aplomb.

Opening Ceremony

The game was preceded by an opening ceremony where Mamata Banerjee, Hon. Chief Minister, West Bengal was Chief Guest. There were Army Bands on display and star singers Papon and Rewben Mashangwa rendered the tournament theme song, before the Chief Guest was introduced to the players and support staff of both teams.

A game of two-halves

Deggie Cardozo the Goa gaffer despite fielding a relatively inexperienced side opted for an attacking 4-3-3 formation to begin the game, while Mohammedan went the regulation 4-4-2 with Trinidadian Marcus upfront with the young Rahul Paswan.

However, it was the Gaurs who drew first blood when just over the half-hour mark, Nemil found himself with some space just outside the box and completely wrong-footed the keeper Shankar Roy with a delectable chipped shot on the turn.

The Black & White brigade come back strong

The second half was all Mohammedan as Pritam Singh found a loose ball inside the box after the Goa custodian had parried away a Sk. Faiaz cross. He made no mistake. Mohammedan continued to attack and Marcus in particular missed a few gilt-edged opportunities. Then Chernyshov made an inspired double substitution bringing in Abhash Thapa and Faslu Rahman with just over 10 minutes of the game left. The two subs combined effectively as Man of the Match Faslu got at the end of an Abhash cross and Mohammedan were well on their way to avenge last year’s final defeat.

Then with the game in stoppage time, Marcus tapped in from close to make it 3-1 to the joy of the 30,000 odd local supporters in the stadium.
