Football: Ansumana Kromah stands in way of Mohun Bagan’s win

Former striker Ansumana Kromah will stand in the way of Mohun Bagan’s maiden win of the season when the Kolkata giants take on Aizawl FC in the I-League match here on Saturday.
Once a vital cog in the Liberian become out of favor with the Shankarlal Chakraborty side because of his ‘bad influence’ on the team.

Donning the Peerless SC colors, Kromah headlined the recently-concluded Calcutta Football League by becoming the top-scorer with 11 goals that helped his side finish runner-up.
Kromah also scored a stoppage-time goal to deny Mohun Bagan a victory and followed it up with a muted celebration. The 26-year-old playmaker will again look to prove a point against his former team.

Mohun Bagan, who are playing their first home game of the season, will eye victory with the crowd behind them. They helped to a 1-1 draw by Gokulam FC.

Aizawl FC, on the other hand, have lost their first encounter of the season against Shillong Lajong FC 1-2 in a match Kromah scored from a penalty.
Kromah can stat as an attacking midfielder, as a  striker and can be lethal from the left wing and his inside knowledge of Mohun Bagan’s strategies and tactics will also be a key factor.

All eyes in the match will be on Mohun Bagan’s fan favorite Sony Norde, who is likely to star after clearing a fitness test. The Haitian, who played an instrumental role in their I-League triumph in 2015, has completed the signing formalities this morning and will be back in the reckoning after an injury-laden last season.
Norde played for about an hour in a practice match against Kalighat on Thursday and he is all set to be back, making a formidable back, making a formidable attacking line-up alongside Dipanda Dicka and Henry Kisekka.
The pressure will be on Mohun Bagan with archrivals East Bengal notching two back-to-back wins.
