Shortly he received a through ball and he ran towards the goalpost. He fumbled with the ball and MS Police players caught him. Marked by defenders he flicked the ball from flank towards Manish Koli in the last minute. Manish Koli chest trapped the ball and a half-volley seemed like the final nail in the coffin for MS Police in the 94th minute.
