Kalyani Football Ground at 3 P.M
REAL KASHMIR SCORES IN THE 90TH MINUTE TO REGISTER THEIR FIRST WIN IN DURAND CUP 2019
A team that was assembled a couple of days back, with minimal opportunity of match practice, open their sheet for the 129th Durand Cup with a win over Chennai City FC.
The two teams, from two geographical extremes of the nation, met at Kalyani stadium earlier today. Till the half-time whistle, the match barely had any activity, with rains playing an occasional spoilsport. Real Kashmir tried hard to get past Chennai City defenders but Kabir T, the goalkeeper made some brilliant saves and prevented Real Kashmir to make any early lead.
The second half of the game too saw some activity from Real Kashmir, with a few cameos from Chennai City FC. It was moments before the final whistle would be heard that Danish Farooq netted a goal at the 90th minute to give Real Kashmir a win over Chennai City.
Real Kashmir will meet Army Green on August 10 and Chennai City will play FC Goa on August 14, both at Kalyani Stadium.
