In a Durand Cup Group F match, the Indian Army secured victory against Odisha FC with a score of 1-0. The lone goal of the match was scored by Liton Shil in the 42nd minute. Shil’s well-taken goal proved to be enough for the Indian Army to clinch the win against the Indian Super League (ISL) side, Odisha FC.

The Indian Army started the game aggressively and could have scored early on if Rahul Ramakrishnan had managed to convert a chance created by L Deepak Singh’s cross from the right wing. The Army team continued to apply pressure, with Christopher Kamei’s shot being saved by Odisha’s goalkeeper Niraj Kumar.

The breakthrough came just before half-time when Samir Murmu provided a through ball to Liton Shil, who skillfully bypassed two defenders and expertly finished to give the Indian Army side the lead.

However, the Indian Army’s victory was somewhat marred as they were reduced to 10 players in the 77th minute. Liton Shil, the goal scorer, received a straight red card for a clumsy foul on Odisha’s defender Tankadhar Bag.

Despite being a man down in the final moments of the match, the experienced players of the Indian Army managed to withstand Odisha FC’s pressure and secure the victory to kick off their campaign in the Durand Cup on a positive note.

The Durand Cup is one of the oldest football tournaments in India, and this match showcased the competitive spirit and skill of both teams as they battled it out on the field.
