TFA players unsure for season opener!

Mohun Bagan play their season opener against Peerless SC and with just one day to spare they are faced with a critical problem. The 8 TFA players who have signed for Bagan this season are yet to receive their Inter-state-clearance from Jharkhand. Without the clearance they cannot be featured by Karim in the first match. Hence he might have to go with the others. Certainly that will be a difficulty! Bagan officials are trying hard to get hold of the clearance by tomorrow.
IFA XI go down 1-0!
Today IFA XI featuring 8 Bagan players met East Bengal in the Arun Ghosh Benefit match and on a rain washed day in Kolkata, IFA XI went down 1-0 through a Mehetab Hussain goal. Mohun Bagan presented a Gift Cheque of Rs. 20,000/- and Jose Ramirez Barreto gave an mount of 2,00,000/- on his behalf!
