West Bengal have lifted the Santosh Trophy for the 32nd time by defeating Goa One-Nil in the final of the premier domestic football tournament at Bambolim yesterday.
After a goalless 90-minutes’ of play, the match-winner came in the dying moments of extra time through Manvir Singh. He found the target with a stunning left-footer, having received a pass from Shaikhom Ronald on the left.
West Bengal, thus, ended a six-year wait having last won the title in 2011. Goa last won it in 2009.
