Khalid & Co aims to make it 4 in a row against spirited Gokulam FC.
The "City of Joy" has been entered into a festive sulk with decorations, shopping, the smell of fresh cocoa coming out of bakery's, churches ringing bells all night long there seem to be no respite for Khalid Jamil & his lads as they lock horns against an unpredictable Neroca FC.
The last match against Chennai City FC where the Red & Gold brigade triumphed 2-1 was played on a turf unsuitable even for a futsal match to take place. AIFF has shamed the whole nation & passionate football lovers in India. East Bengal was lucky enough to escape without any injury concerns, thanks to Djair Miranda Garcia whose inclusion has seen the team surging up with sharp fitness levels that were lacking for past few seasons.
Team Info:- In the last match against Chennai City FC Bazie & Cavin Lobo were replaced by Chullova & Charles as Khalid had opted for a 4-4-2 attacking formation might restore back to his usual 4-1-4-1 against Neroca FC at home.he forward under scanner Charles managed to get his name on the scoresheet has made a strong statement might be a headache for Khalid to select his starting XI. The Japanese Samurai Katsumi Yusa who has the maximum number of goals (jointly with Laldanmahwaia Ralte) & assists for Red & Golds combined with the Syrian Wizard Mahmoud Al-Amna has been meticulous with their performance might offer some relief to the gaffer as the front men seem to continue to lackluster form.
Gokul FC Dream Run:- The new entrants from Kerala has been a surprise package in this years I-League. After losing their opening fixture against Minerva FC the team has gained momentum & remains undefeated to date.
Telecast Tale:- The mouth-watering clash will be aired live on Star Sports 2 from Salt Lake Stadium Kolkata @8pm.It can also be streamed in Hotstar. We from EBRP would request all the ardent Red & Gold fans to join us inside the stadium & cheer the team to the glory against mighty Neroca FC.
