Match Report: Gymkhana smash Botswana Meat Commission FC

Mario Balotelli reveals his 'Why Always Me?' T-shirt at Old Trafford during Manchester City's 6-1 mauling of Manchester United.

Gymkhana inflicted Botswana Meat Commission FC’s worst ever defeat as they thrashed the steak lovers 10-0 in ruthless fashion to go one point clear at the top of the ZFC Premier League.

And Munawarali Najafi’s men could not have delivered a more emphatic statement as Sajjad Najarali’s side were humiliated.

Gymkhana led just 1-0 at half-time, but the second half was completely one-sided and the eventual margin of victory could have been even more convincing.

Shaniabbas Kara, in the headlines for accidentally setting his house ablaze with fireworks, put Gymkhana on their way with five goals as BMC struggled to contain the array of attacking talent in front of them which included the likes of Aarif Fazal and Al-Jawad Bhalloo.

Kara, nicknamed the Rawalpindi Express by the Gymkhana faithful, who will surely now be one of the most tightly marked men in the league had this to say: “I scored five goals, so the reports will say I gave a five-star performance. But in reality I scored five goals and assisted five goals, so they should say I gave a ten-star performance.”

Aamir Ali Panju, Abbas Habib, Muzammil Jaffer, Munawarali Najafi and Sohail Kara all got on the score sheet and this result will have sent shockwaves through the ZFC Premier League.

As Najarali strode briskly towards the changing rooms at the final whistle, he will have been reflecting on the extent of the challenge now facing him from the club he once branded “noisy neighbours”.

BMC’s stature is such that one result must not bring the immediate announcement of a shift in the balance of power in Africa – but the swathes of empty seats around Toronto City Sport Centre and the wave of attacks pouring towards Shahid Juma’s goal in the second half emphasised that Gymkhana quite simply have greater firepower and talent in their squad at present.

In contrast to what was to come, Gymkhana were barely allowed any time to settle on the ball in the opening exchanges, with Mehboob Ajwani prominent and drawing heavy fouls from Sohail Kara and Imran Virji.

And it was against the run of play that Gymkhana took the lead, courtesy of a stroke of casual quality from Kara. Panju was the creator but Kara, given too much time and space by the BMC defence, finished sublimely with a stroked finish into the bottom corner.

Shaniabbas Kara, in recognition of those latest chaotic events in his personal life, then revealed a T-shirt bearing the slogan “Why Always Me?”.
