Danish Farooq was a delight to be seen in the midfield, always searching for the ball and passing effectively.

On Shahnawaz’s free kick, Ritwik played a brilliant dribble and pass to Danish who shot towards goal which hit the post.

Ritwik was the star performer of the game with wonderful dribbles and footwork.

He scored the header in the 38th minute off a free kick in the first half and later in the game troubled the opposite team’s defence with ball possession and effective runs on the left wing.
