Speaking over phone from Guwahati, USFC's senior manager, Arjun Rai, said that Baichung played a good game in defence to stop the attacks of the opponent team.

"This match was crucial for the team and the players have really proved them in the match. Now it is on the second position with seven points and there is much hope to win our last two matches to enter into the second round in Shillong," Rai said.
The match witnessed huge crowd support for USFC by players of Martam Secondary School and Namchi Senior Secondary School football teams, who are in Guwahati for their matches in another tournament.

USFC is now scheduled to play Guwahati Town Club on April 12 followed by the last match in the pool against Golden Threads on April 14.
