Mumbai FC beats Vasco
Margao: Vasco Sports Club was pushed deeper into the relegation zone after the Goan side went down 1-2 to Mumbai Football Club in the ONGC I-League football match at the Nehru Stadium in Fatorda on Sunday.

Vasco took the lead in the sixth minute through Sherzad Nazarov’s penalty, but Mumbai FC fought back with Abhishek Yadav getting the equaliser in 10th minute and Kalia Kulothungan striking the match-winner just two minutes before the final whistle.

The win helped Mumbai FC collect 27 points, while Vasco continues to languish at the bottom of the pool with just 10 points.

The visitor played the last 15 minutes with just 10 players after goalkeeper Lihaz Koya was shown the red card for a foul on Sherzad. Defender James Dissiramah had to don the role of the custodian as Mumbai FC had used all its substitutions by that time.

New coach Agostinho Dias made three changes from the previous match, but failed to produce the desired result for Vasco.

Perfect start

Vasco got the perfect start in the sixth minute when Sherzad converted a spot kick. Sherzad was himself brought down inside the danger zone by goalkeeper Lihaz Koya after defender Anas Edathodika made an uncharacteristic blunder when clearing the ball.

Mumbai FC scored the equaliser three minutes later when captain Yadav nodded home a well measured cross from Alex Ambrose.

The match hardly rose to great heights as the action was mostly confined in the centre of midfield. — PTI
