Krishna scores on debut

Fijian wonder boy Roy Krishna scored a goal on his debut for the Bengaluru FC to secure a 2-1 win against  10-men Jamshedpur FC in their first match of the Durand Cup today.
Indian Captain Sunil Chhetri put Bengaluru in front with a clinical header from a Prabir Das free kick in the 23rd minute and maintained the 1-nil lead at the break.
Coming off the bench and just into the 56th minute, an assisting pass from Chhetri made a perfect run into the Jamshedpur FC box, providing an inch-perfect backheel to Krishna giving a 2-nil lead.
Minutes later, Bengaluru’s signing from East Bengal, Hira Mondal, who was already on a yellow card, once again caught the eyes of referee Rahul Kumar Gupta to get a second booking as Bengaluru was reduced to 10 players in the 59th minute.
The Red Miners were quick to cash in on their numerical advantage to earn a free kick which Phijam Vikash Singh took and Rishi from the right pulled one back.
