Mohammedan Sporting put up an improved performance in the I-League Qualifiers crushing ARA FC 4-1 at the Salt Lake Stadium here on Sunday but in a surprising move coach Yan Law was sacked with immediate effect.

In the second match of the day in Kalyani, FC Bengaluru United rode on Opoku's eighth minute goal to for a hard-fought 1-0 win over Garhwal FC.

Having lost to Bhawanipore FC 0-2, this was the Bengaluru ouftit's first win of the tournament as they moved to third spot in the five-team table.

Mohammedan Sporting lead points tally with two wins from two matches, followed by city rivals Bhawanipore FC. The group toppers after one round of play will qualify for the I-League 2020-21.

Nepalese striker Abhishek Rijal, making his Mohammedan debut, scored a first half brace (21st and 45th minute), while Willis Plaza (13th) and Sheikh Faiaz (89th) struck one each to hand the Black Panthers their second win from as many matches. An own goal by Mohammedan Sporting defender Safiul Rahman in the 58th minute reduced the margin for the Ahmedabad-based ARA FC who were playing their first match of the tournament.
