Having sealed its semifinal spot ahead of the match, Bagan launched a barrage of attacks to pose constant threat on the Navy post.

Nongdamba Naorem and Subho Ghosh were in the thick of action for Bagan but the youngsters could not breach the Navy defence, efficiently guarded by keeper Bhaskar Roy.

Navy’s Dalraj Singh brought down Sheikh Faiaz to concede a penalty and Gonzalez made no mistake to score the all-important goal just before an hour’s play.

Indian Navy has managed to get only one point from its three group matches.

THE FINAL RESULT:

Group B:

Mohun Bagan 1 (Francisco Gonzalez (p) 58') beat Indian Navy 0.
