Barreto fights a lone battle!

It was a one-man-show from Bagan as they went in against Sporting clube de Goa in Kolkata. Paying a visit to Kalighat has not mended Bagan's ways as chances went begging and the defence looked off colour finding it hard to cope up with SCG attacks. Barreto, injured, put up a lone battle and drew first blood through a header from a centre put in by Douglas in the beginning of the second half. Bagan could not however hold on the lead as SCG pressurised the Bagan defence. Shilton came up with a stunner but soon enough yield to another shot.
The reason why Indian football is at the lowest rung of International football is evident because of fact that refereeing in India is of a lower grade. Bagan have been victim of such poor refereeing in the past and today was no exception. A series of erroneous decisions saw Bagan go down on her knees. Barreto scored scored a clean forward pass which was adjudged as offside, Isfaq Ahmed was fouled in the penalty box and the referee dashed out his yellow card for Isfaq for diving, a SCG defender handled the ball inside the box and escaped unpunished, a back pass from a defender was handled by the keeper which the keeper waived off as unintentional pass and not to mention the SCG players went unpunished for glaring time wasting through out the match.
Team: Shilton, Sanjeev, Siddique, Mohanraj, Habibur, Douglas, Lalkamal, Anit(Dharamjit), Barreto, Isfaq, Bhaichung.
