‘Team is priority for me’

Calcutta: Tolgay Ozebe was all smiles after masterminding Kingfisher East Bengal’s entry into the IFA Shield final.

Tolgay, is nursing a groin injury but still made a start against Pailan Arrows, at the Salt Lake Stadium, on Tuesday.

“It is a crucial phase. We are missing a lot of players due to injuries. I took a medicine on Monday and the pain ebbed. So, I requested coach to keep me in the squad. For me, team is No. 1 priority,” the Australian said.

East Bengal coach Trevor James Morgan sounded pleased.

“It is always a good feeling to reach the final of any tournament. Although we did not score many goals, we created numerous chances. That is a positive sign.

“In the first half, the boys were fantastic. In the second half also they created space but chose the wrong options,” said Morgan.
