Meghalaya qualify for Santosh Trophy final round after defeating Manipur

Shillong, Sep 27: Meghalaya qualified for the final round of the Santosh Trophy after topping Group B by defeating Manipur 1-0 in Agartala today.

Phrangki Buam was the scorer of Meghalaya’s lone goal.

Railways didn’t turn up for the tournament, so Meghalaya’s first match took place on Wednesday against Nagaland, which ended 6-1 in Meghalaya’s favour. Manipur, meanwhile, had drawn 0-0 with Nagaland on Monday.

The Meghalaya team will now return home. The final round will begin at a date to be announced by the All India Football Federation.
