MARGAO, Oct 7: Defending champions Atletico de Kolkata defended doggedly with 10 men as they held FC Goa to a 1-1 draw in the Indian Super League football encounter, here today. While ATK struck in the 13th minute through a spectacular Arata Izumi volley, it was Keenan Almeida�s cracking right footer that restored parity for Zico�s men in the 81st minute in an ill-tempered match.
Both ATK and FC Goa now have three points from two games with a win and a draw to show for their efforts. ATK�s Baljit Sahni was shown the first red-card of the season after head butting opposition defender Gregory Arnolin bringing memories of the last season when the latter was involved in an identical incident with the then ATK striker Fikru Teferra. � PTI
