New Delhi:

The forthcoming National Football League matches involving Sporting Club de Goa have been cancelled in the wake of the accident that some of the players and the coach of the team met with in Kolkata on Wednesday. Their matches in the 4th, 5th and 6th round have been cancelled in view of the accident, a press release from All India Football Federation Secretary Alberto Colaco said today. The matches would be rescheduled after considering their medical reports, the release said. As many as 11 members, including eight footballers, of the Goan club were injured when their airport-bound team bus overturned in Kolkata last evening. Four players -- Joseph Pereira, Peter Pereira, John Barreto Louis and Ajay Diwadkar -- are undergoing treatment at a private hospital in the city while coach Clifford Chukuwama was released after first aid. Sporting's immediate engagement was a fourth round match against Mahindra United in Mumbai on Saturday. (PTI)
