We were outstanding today. The Coach’s efforts are paying off. From now on, we will play to win every match!” – Ajit Isaac, Chairman & CMD, @QuessConnect#EastBengalFC #LoveEastBengal #KolkataDerby pic.twitter.com/lSEBSsSw77Quess East Bengal FC (@eastbengalfc) January 27, 2019But East Bengal did well to keep the Haitian at bay as he struggled to get the ball or his attempts were blocked by the alert defence.Norde’s only realistic chance was in the first half but his first-time shot from the close ranger was well anticipated by Lalram Chullova.Also Read | Loving that extra pressure which has come with this Padma Shri award: Sunil ChhetriAlso Read | Indian football needs actively involved Chhetri even after retirement, says Luis GarciaAlso Read | SAC approves Rs 2 crore grant for Real Kashmir for 3 years, beginning 2018-19Also Read | Jobby Justin the net busterFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
