Mohammedan have done the seemingly impossible, beating heavily-favoured Abahani in the final of the Federation Cup on Tuesday to end a barren run stretching nine years. It has evoked widespread euphoria among the club's supporters and former players, with some referring to the success as a turning point in the fortunes of the most decorated football club in the country.
Talking to a media on Wednesday, Diabate said, “I would be happy to play for Bangladesh.”
Soon after the presentation ceremony was over following the pulsating Federation Cup final in Cumilla yesterday, Mohammedan captain Souleymane Diabate ran up the stairs with two trophies in his hands --one for the top-scorer and another for the player of the tournament -- and a crest for becoming the most valuable player of the final. He walked into the dressing room, where the Mohammedan players were revelling following a pulsating win over arch-rivals Abahani.
