Al Amnah stars in East Bengal win over Mumbai City FC

BHUBANESWAR, Odisha: East Bengal showed excellent resilience as they fought back a goal down to beat Mumbai City FC 2-1 to advance into the Super Cup quarterfinals here at the Kalinga Stadium on Thursday evening.

Katsumi Yusa cancelled out Achille Emana's 22nd effort four minutes later while Mahmoud Al Amnah scored the winner in the 73rd to herald a great win for East Bengal, who finished fourth in the I-League

Both coaches Khalid Jamil and Mumbai’s Costa Rican coach, Alexandre Guimaraes, lined up their outfits in identical fashion at the start of the game- four-man defence, packed the midfield and with the lone target man up front. While Mumbai had India striker Balwant Singh as the goal poacher, Nigerian Dudu Omagbeni was entrusted with that role by the Red & Golds.
