The last week’s friendly match resulted in a 3-2 loss to D2. D2 had to borrow a few players from opponent side as most of the players did not show up in time. It turned out well for D2 as they managed to take a 1-0 lead in the first half of the 7-a-side match. However, D2 had to play with a man less during the 2nd half and coceded three successive goals as the complexion of the game changed towards Goethals team. It could have been worse had not the defense duo of Bijay and Manoj held back most of the Goethals attack. D2 managed to pull one back during the last minutes of the game but it was too little too late.
