A day before the final of the ASEAN club football championships at Jakarta, star striker Baichung Bhutia said East Bengal was currently playing with total unity and in fantastic spirit and was hoping to lift the title. "There is unity among the players and it is showing on the field as well. Team spirit is fantastic and team is playing like a unit," said Bhutia. The Kolkata giants made history yesterday, becoming the first Indian club to make it to the final of such an international event. East Bengal takes on Thailand's champion and Asia's number three club BEC Tero Sesana in the final on Saturday. The Thailand side had beaten East Bengal in the first match 1-0 and the Indian club would be definitely looking to avenge the defeat in the title round. Rating the Thai side highly, Bhutia said East Bengal had another "hard game" on hand but promised to continue to the good showing. (PTI)
