Dhaka, May 16, 2017 (BSS)- Sheikh Russell Krira Chakra stormed into the quarterfinal of the Walton Federation Cup dumping Farashganj 3-0 at the Bangabandhu National Stadium on Tuesday.

The group B affair overall was an one way traffic with Russell dominating all the way and Farashganj remaining at the receiving end.

Farashganj who earlier lost to Sheikh Jamal made their exit after tasting their second defeat in as many matches.

Sheikh Russell midfielder Mehbub Hasan Nayon saw his brilliant attempt just went in the 13h minute.

Farashganj forward Alam Nabi in the 17th minute shot straight to Russell goalie Ziaur Rahman. Dawda Cisse, the Gambian forward put Russell ahead in the 32nd before unleashing a low shot into the far post corner of the net (1-0).

Farashganj's woe continued as Russell doubled the lead seven minutes later. In a well built move, midfielder Shahedul Alam Shahed initiated the move at the midfield, Sajib took the through at the right flank paving the way for Arup Baidya whose grounder rolled into the net (2-0)

Sajib inserted his name among the scorers list, eight minutes after the restart as he out jumped his marker to head a cross of Arup Baidya that gave no chance to Farashganj goalie Borhanuddin (3-0)
