Defending champion Mohun Bagan retained the All India Governor's Gold Cup today outclassing Bangladesh's Arambagh Krira Chakra 4-0 in the title clash of the 23rd edition of the football tournament. Mohun Bagan, which dominated the proceedings right from the beginning, scored two in each session with Nigerian Seriki scoring a brace. Jose Parreto and R P Singh netted one each. Seriki headed home the first goal in 12th minute off a Renedy Singh cross from the flank. Two minutes before the recess a right footer from Barreto off a Dulal Biswas pass from the top of the penalty box defeated Bangla custodian Biplab Bhattacharya to make it 2-0. Barreto finished as the highest scorer of the tournament. Mohun Bagan increased the tally in 61st minute when Seriki again outwitted the Bangla defence with his speed from a midfield cross and slotted home the ball. R P Singh completed the tally in the 75th minute with his grounder which baffled a diving Bangla custodian. (PTI)
