Sunil Chhetri-led Bengaluru FC lifted their maiden Durand Cup title on Sunday as they beat Mumbai City FC 2-1 in the summit clash at the Salt Lake Stadium. Siva Sakthi (10th minute) and Brazilian Alan Costa (61st) scored for the winners while Apuia got the lone goal for the Mumbai side in an entertaining match. 

The Islanders did get a free-kick in the very first minute of the game but it was the Blues who took an early lead in the 10th minute of the game through Siva Sakthi who scored his fifth goal of the tournament.

Lallianzuala Chhangte then had the first chance for the Islanders in the 17th minute, they got the equaliser at the half-hour mark when Sandesh Jhingan gave away a free-kick in a dangerous zone.

However, Brazilian Costa jumped highest and nailed a header into the back of the MCFC net from a Sunil Chhetri corner in the second half to seal the deal for BFC. As Bengaluru FC lifted their maiden title, captain Sunil Chhetri was more than elated and went on to collect the trophy on the team’s behalf. But what happened at the stage was what caught the attention of the fans.

The video of the incident went viral on social media as a user shared it on Twitter. “Bhai meri sakal ni aa rahi thora side htt na,” he captioned the video,
