Rajasthan United FC (RUFC) made history after qualifying for the quarterfinals of the 131st Durand Cup by defeating the Indian Navy football team by 2-0 at the Kishore Bharati Krirangan, Kolkata on Monday.

Needing a win to qualify for the knockout stages, RUFC started on the front foot against the Navy side. There were many stops and starts in the game as both teams committed fouls and tried to break each other’s moves. Both teams were unable to create any clear-cut chances, as the game was mostly played in the middle of the park.
