League champions Bashundhara Kings made a flying start in the season’s curtain raiser meet, the Riviera Independence Cup Football ‘21, outplaying Bangladesh Navy by 6-0 goals at the Bir Shrestha Shahid Shapahi Mohammad Mostafa Kamal Stadium in Kamalapur on Tuesday.
They dominated the first half by 2-0 goals.
Bosnia and Herzegovina forward Stojan Vranics struck twice, while Brazilian forwards Jonathan Fernandes and Ronson Robinho, and Eleta Kingsley and Hamidur Rahman scored one each for the star-studded Kings.
Earlier the day’s first match between Chittagong Abahani Limited and Bangladesh Police FC ended in 1-1 draw at the same venue in the afternoon.
After a barren first, Brazilian midfielder Denilson Rodrigues put Police team ahead in the 48th minute (1-0) but their lead was very short-lived as the Abahani’s Nigerian forward Ebimowei Thankgod restored parity just two minutes later from a panalty (1-0).
