Mohun Bagan rule Futsal Friendsy

Futsal frenzy gripped the city, when MC Dowell's Futsal Friendsy hit Kolkata. The National Final was held today at the Mohun Bagan ground. Kolkata team and the Kerala team made it to the finals of the tournament, where they met the Mohun Bagan futsal team. The Mohun Bagan consisting of Henry Gangte, Rino Antao, Lalram Luaha, Tapan Maity, S. James Jr. beat the Kerala team 3-1 in the Final. The 5 man a side tournament was held in nation wide scale an the champions from each region locked their horns in the city.
What was heartening to see was that even though it was not such an important occasion and only a 5 a side tournament, that also after a tiresome Fed Cup win, the whole team had turned up at the club ground. From Bhaichung, Barreto, Lalkamal, Lalam to the coaches and even the reserves.
Probably this is the team spirit Karim has been taking about and hope Bagan continue on their winning streak!
