Football in HAL is dying a slow death!

This was the last thing waiting to happen –HAL was defeated today by a
bottom-rung, almost-relegated team Jawahar Union. HAL had every chance to restore parity. Karthigayen was tripped down by keeper Ranvijaya inside the penalty box during injury time, ref. had no hesitation to award a penalty. However, Prateek Joshi’s powerful shot was saved by Jawahar’s keeper. 

After witnessing HAL’s desperation, apparently, the football loving crowd of the Garden City started supporting minnows Jawahar Union! 

Hard to believe that the ‘once’ pride of Bangalore football used to be a name to be reckoned with in Indian football. Football in HAL is sick, dying a slow death!
