Marcus Joseph owes Mohammedan the best of dreams

East Pen Webdesk: No, the last defense is not Mohammedan Sporting. The black and white brigade’s dream of becoming the I-League champions for the first time remained elusive after losing 2-1 to Kerala’s Gokulam FC. Around 47,000 spectators came to the Yuvbharati Stadium on this day to watch the game of their favorite team Mohammedan Sporting. They all wanted to enjoy the champions of the team. Mohammedan Sporting could not reach that goal even after playing a spectacular football in the first half. After being goalless in the first half, Gokulam went ahead forgetting the Mohammedan defense within minutes of the second half. After a while, Azaruddin Mallick scored the goal by touching the foot with the shot of Marcus Joseph from the set piece. But that equality did not last long. Gokulam wrote a new story in the history of I-League by scoring the second goal in a short time. Gokulam FC set a precedent in the history of Indian football by winning the I-League twice in a row. And Mohammedan has to be second. Not to be champion. There is only one comfort in the pain of dream breaking. The highest goal scorer of the competition is Marcus Joseph of Mohammedan Sporting. He scored 15 goals in the entire competition. With the selection of the best player of the competition, this foreign striker of Mohammedan has been selected as the best forward of the competition.
