The Fijian star, who missed the ISL 2019-20 golden boot by a whisker, also scored the first goal for the new club -- ATKMB.

He made the most of a defensive lapse to put his side ahead 1-0 in the 67th minute. Krishna latched on to a loose ball after an uncontrolled clearance from Sergio Cidoncha and took a touch before drilling the ball home past KBFC goalkeeper Albino Gomes.

After becoming the first goal-scorer for ATK Mohun Bagan, Krishna said,"It feels good but I can't take all the credit. It must go to the defenders. We had a game plan and it worked. Credit to the coach. Yes, I am [excited for the Kolkata derby].. it's up to the coach on who is going to play. It will be a good week."
