After rocky tenure, Shree Cement hands over sporting rights to East Bengal

Shree Cement Limited on Tuesday officially ended their topsy-turvy two-year association with Kolkata heavyweights East Bengal by handing back the sporting rights of the ISL wooden spooners.

Confirming the development, Shree Cement Ltd CEO Col Shibaji Samaddar told PTI: “Yes, Shree Cement has moved out of East Bengal af...

ISL: NorthEast United stun SC East Bengal to register their second win this season | Football News – Times of India

The first half of the Indian Super League match in Fatorda on Friday saw a confident SC East Bengal, something that was rarely on display this season. But at the end of the second, their hopes for the first win had been crushed by coach Manuel Diaz’s tactical mistake and two strikes from NorthEast United in one of the Highlanders’ best 45 minutes of the season so far. After completely being out-powered by SCEB in the first half where both teams lacked finishing in the attacking third, NEUFC came back a different team in the second – pressing up and creating chances. The change in tempo began to put the SCEB defence in trouble for the first time in the match. And it was not long before it yielded results. In the 61st minute, the SCEB defence failed to clear the ball out of the box from a...
