I could not follow the match as closely as I do on TV with all the festive atmosphere but a brief report of the Match- Mohun Bagun got off to a good start, Bareto created lot of chances, Sunil chhetri created a penalty which was converted by Odafa Okolie. Alan Gow and Robin Singh of East Bengal seemed to be missing the Presence of Tolgay, even though East Bengal players seemed to have a lot of chances, they failed to convert any goals. The lowlight of the evening was the 20 minutes powercut 5 minutes before the game ended.
1. The Mohun Bagans in Maroon & Grey and East Bengal in White- What an electrifying crowd....Rockets , fireworks, crackers, flames and burnt torches inside the stadium....and non stop screaming, shouting, cursing, taunting & hollering inside the stadium by the young, old, sober & drunkard, it reminded me of the line from movie Gladiator, where the trainer asked the gladiators, "Have you ever seen anything like that before? " enough said, now for some pictures.
