AIZAWL: The much-anticipated match between Aizawl FC and Minerva Punjab FC ended with a own goal by Loveday Okechukwu towards the end of the second half. The match remained goalless until 94th minute when Loveday miscued his header to score an own-goal from a scathing long-corner taken by Mahmoud Al-Amna who was eventually bestowed with the Hero of the Match award.
Having earned themselves 1 point each from their previous matches against Kingfisher East Bengal and Chennai City FC, both Aizawl FC and Minerva Punjab FC approached the pitch with cherished desires to walk away with all three points. Nigerian forward Victor Amobi proved his skills once again playing a spectacular game for his side. Aizawl FC defender Lalruatthara also showed his worth making his presence felt and posing to be a threat even in the attacking third.
