Cleiton Silver scored twice, including a late curling free-kick to hand East Bengal their first win of ISL 2023-24 season, cancelling an earlier goal from Hitesh Sharma

A goal in injury time by Cleiton Silva guided East Bengal to a 2-1 win over Hyderabad FC in their Indian Super League match here on Saturday.

Hitesh Sharma put HFC in lead as early as in the eighth minute but the home team hit back in no time with Silva finding the back of the net in the 10th minute at the Salt Lake Stadium.

When it seemed like the match would end in a draw, Silva struck the winning goal (90+3 minutes) from a free kick with a right-footed shot to the top left corner to the delight of the home fans.
