East Bengal were held to a 1-1 draw by Churchill Brothers in their opening Group A fixture of Hero Federation Cup at Barabati Stadium, Cuttack today.


After a pedestrian first half Wedson Anselme opened the scoring in the 65th minute when he scored a brilliant goal after hoodwinking three Churchill defenders from a long pass by Bikash Jairu. Ansumanah Kromah restored parity in the 81st minute of a Brandon Fernandes assist.


Wedson Anselme was adjudged Man of the Match.
