Branco's equaliser save Bagan from blushes!

Branco Cardozo, was brought in as a late substitute by Karim, when Mohun Bagan was trailing Air India by one goal, and the promising young Bagan striker did not disappoint the Bagan fans as he managed to score the equaliser and give Bagan a point.
The match started off with Bagan pouncing on the Air India defense bringing up waves of attack one after the other. Ishfaq Ahmed, continued his brilliant form and along with Lalkamal Bhowmick, the duo effected some commendable attacks. With the properly orchestrated attack from Lalkamal and Ishfaq, the Air India custodian had a tough time under the bar and did his best to deny Bagan from scoring. However, just before the half time, Bagan conceded a goal against the run of play.
In the second half, Mama was introduced to revitalise the right flank but to no avail. However, Lalampuia, finally found a free ball, directed by Barreto and made his way into the box and it was quite unselfish of him, when he pushed the ball across the goal to Branco who was free and he pounced on the occasion and converted it into a goal.
Karim after the match, confessed that the Bagan team has not been performing upto its true potential and its not an easy job for him to make a young team work like magic and said time is the essence. The young brigade has been finding it hard to cope up with the pressure of the Calcutta crowd and Karim is trying his best to make things work.
