Kuwait SC end EB run

East Bengal’s hopes of scripting history by becoming the first Indian football club to enter the AFC Cup final were dashed by Kuwait Sports Club who won the second leg semifinal 3-0 here on Tuesday. 

The scorers for Kuwait SC were Rogerio Coutinho (42nd), Hadi Khamees (44th) and Fahad Awaad (87th).

East Bengal played with 10 men for the last 24 minutes after their defender Arnab Mondal was shown the red card for pulling a rival player by holding his jersey. 

The two-time defending champions thus made it to yet another continental club championship final with an aggregate scoreline of 7-2.
