Kolkata, Jan 18: City football giants Mohun Bagan kick started their I–league campaign in some style, by comfortably outclassing a 10 man Mumbai FC 3–1 here at the Saltlake Stadium Sunday riding on a brace by talismanic Japanese mid–fielder Katsumi Yusa. Yusa scored in both halves, with Haitian Sony Norde also finding the back of the net once for the home side. Brazilian forward Joshimar da Silva did pull a consolation for the losers but Kul Sawant’s red card at the fag end of the game did not help Mumbai’s cause either, as they failed to make a comeback. Bagan started with Balwant Singh and Sony Norde being paired upfront in the absence of Pierre Boya who was injured. Mohammed Rafi and Josimar da Silva were handed the responsibility to score goals for Mumbai FC as they lined–up in their usual 4–4–2 formation. IANS
