Kolkata: Real Kashmir began their preseason with a comeback 2-1 win against Peerless SC in the 123rd IFA Shield at the East Bengal ground here on Sunday.
A solid build-up play by Sujay Dutta and a strong header by Uttam Rai gave Peerless a 20th minute lead.
Real Kashmir stepped up their attack and Danish Farooq first set up Chesterpoul to find an equaliser in the 25th minute before finding the back of the net in the 32nd minute to seal three points for his team.
“I would like to dedicate this goal to my family who supported me and also the owner of the club. Please support us through thick and thin. Thank you,” Farooq, who was named Man-of-the-Match, said.
Real Kashmir will next play Aryan Club at the Kalyani Stadium on December 9.
At the Mohun Bagan ground, Indian Arrows were held to a 1-1 draw by Southern Samity.

Fresh from their promotion into the I-League, Mohammedan Sporting started their IFA Shield campaign with a bang, thrashing Kiddirpore SC 4-0 at the Saltlake Stadium.
