Muktijoddha stuns fancied Nebitchi
6 April 2005
The night of upsets in the AFC Cup continued when Muktijoddha scored an 89th min goal to defeat Nebitchi of Turkmenistan 1-0 in Ashgabat.
Nebitchi, the home side, was heavily favoured to win the match after defeating East Bengal and holding Group A leaders Al Faisaly to a draw in the previous matches.
Defender Shek Ahmed’s goal in the 89th min stunned the Nebitchi faithful who came in the cold to watch the match. The win brought them level on points with Nebitchi and group leaders, Faisaly on four points each. East Bengal are bottom of the group with a point and a match in hand.
Faisaly will play National Football League leaders East Bengal in a later match in Amman.
