Chattogram boys sent Brazilian striker Nixon Guylherme Rocha Brizolara to take the penalty kick who in the end succeeded to put smile on his fellows’ face and leve the margin.

Chattogram boys had a chance to go ahead from another penalty kick in 88th minute. Striker Nixon Guylherme took the shot and Dhaka’s custodian Shahidul Alam Sohel prevented the attempt efficiently.
