Durand Cup 2021: Army Green defeats Jamshedpur FC 3-1: In a Group B game on Friday played at the Mohun Bagan ground, Army Green football team defeated Jamshedpur FC 3-1 to earn three valuable points and keep their hopes alive in the Durand Cup.

This was the second match for both the teams. While the team from ISL had won their inaugural match, it was a do-or-die game for Army Green and they played just like that.

The Army Green side started all pumped up and created the first real chance, very early in the first half. Dip Majumdar had a scoring opportunity inside the box, which he failed to convert. Jamshedpur FC too had their chances but it was clearly the regimental side, who were making their presence felt.
