Kolkata: Before 20000 people who gathered at the East Bengal ground, it could not have been a better start than this. Riding on Harmanjot Khabra's 80th minute goal, East Bengal opened their CFL campaign with three precious points against Ranjan Chowdhury's Tollygunge Aghragami. It would not be a mistake to say that the blueprint of the win was laid by Korean Do Dong Hyun who operated from the right out of the ground. Dong's contribution and impact made him the man of the match against Tollygunge Aghragami.

Uga Okpara who returned at the same geound with unfamiliar jersey colour, could not restore the smile for his side at the end of it all. Although Ranjan's boys had put up a good show, ace Biswajit Bhattacharya walked away with the slice of cake with his detailed game plan and measured offensive procedures. The red and golds looked to be a side of purpose and made their mark from the very first match.
