Kolkata, Sep 14 : East Bengal, Mohun Bagan and Mohammedan Sporting, the city's three legacy clubs, met FIFA and AFC officials on Thursday hoping that when the roadmap of Indian football is chalked out on the lines of having one league, they are not left out. "FIFA and AFC officials had good meetings with three clubs of the city. They were pleased especially with the support base of the clubs. East Bengal gave a presentation about their legacy," a source close to the development said.
