Bengal enter Santosh Trophy 2011 final

Defending champions West Bengal made it to the final of 65th Santosh Trophy for National Football Championships riding on a solitary goal from striker Budhiram Tudu. In the second semifinal at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium here on Friday, Bengal defeated the Railways in a keenly-contested match. Bengal will play Manipur in the final on May 30 as they look to win the title for the 31st time. Bengal scored the only goal of the match in the 39th minute when Tudu’s grounder, taken from outside the box, found the Railways net. Goalkeeper VP Satish Kumar made a valiant attempt to save it but could not prevent the inevitable.
