Aizwal FC goes down the glorious history lane, wins I League for the first time.
Guwahati/ 1st of May’2017 (Prag News): When a win that means so much to a team who aspires to become the first North Eastern football team to lift the I-League title, the team cannot cease to play the game and be the best.
After the protest at the start of the match with Shillong Lajong against recruiting three referees (all from Bengal) for the match, 1000 kilometers away, the showdown of Mohun Bagan was on against Chennai FC.
The score tally in the league was most crucial because Mohan Bagan was at the verge of a win but 67 minutes into the game with Shillong, the goal by W Lalnunfela decided the scores with Aizwal FC at the top of the table with 37 points with Mohan Bagan just 1 point less settling at Number 2.
But with the hard-ending match with Shillong coming on a 1-1 draw, match enough to suppress Mohan Bagan and become the first one to become I-League champions- Aizwal FC did the unexpected and how!
