Mumbai City FC didn’t get back to the most ideal start in the Season 2 of the Indian Super League, and missing its two star local boys Sunil Chhetri and Subrata Paul just added to its wounded pride. But, finally things are changing of the Devils in Blue after three scintillating back to back to victories! It’s taken a lot of grit and perseverance for the guys to bounce back in such style, but boy, have they arrived and how!
After losing the match around this time last year against NorthEast United FC, Mumbai vowed to not let the history repeat itself. Bitter Sweet Revenge some might call it, but Mumbai is back giving its yearning fans some much-needed wins at The Fortress.
Settling at number 7 in the first season of the league and a poor start in this season, Mumbai has started to slowly rise the charts, coming all the way to the 2nd position now. And our boys have accomplished this in a very sweet fashion topped by Sunil Chhetri’s hattrick in the highest scoring match of the season, thus far against NorthEast United FC, last evening. Call it performance pressure or his expertise, Chhetri aced it beautifully also becoming the first Indian Player to score a hat trick in the ISL.
While it was raining heavily during the FC Goa match, it was raining goals in the match against NorthEast United FC. The hosts were dominating throughout the 90 – minute game. ISL so far has turned out to be a league of impossibilities, wherein no one knows what will happen next. Sunil Chhetri has been named the star of the season since the very beginning and he is making sure to stand by the tag given to him.
