A 10-man East Bengal put up a fine show of grit and grace to hold a strong FC Goa 1-1 in an Indian Super League match at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Wednesday. Nigerian forward Bright Enobakhare brought up a world-class goal to take East Bengal ahead before Devendra Murgaonkar got the equaliser for Goa. Both the goals came late in the second half.

Goa remained the dominant side with around 65 per cent ball possession in the opening half but East Bengal managed to hold off the local side with a good show of defensive organisation. East Bengal coach Robbie Fowler made five changes in the team that had started against Odisha FC, apparently looking for a fitter side to challenge a strong opponent like Goa.
