At the 80’s, the two rivals of Bangladesh footbal were Mohammedan Sporting Club and Abahani Krira Chakra. Those were the heydays of Bangladesh Football. The whole country just splited into two groups, either Mohammedan or Abahoni. During the finals everybody watched game, either in stadium or in TV, no matters what it cost. Those days were gone. Now a days people don’t care about these two teams as well as the football in Bangladesh.
But it seems that golden days are back again! Those two rivals were face to face again at Citycell Super Cup in the final held at the Bangabandhu National Stadium today. Just like the old days, a lot of fan were present in the stadium, they inspired their favourite team beating drums. Nigerian striker Goodwin’s 21-minute goal was enough for the Black and Whites (Mohammedans) to be the champion.
When I was a kid, I was a die hard fan of Mohammedan, the Black and White jersy wearers. Now a days I am too away from the football, but still I find a place for Mohammedan in my heart when I heard any football news of Bangladesh. I still love Mohammedan and I will.
