Sporting Clube De Goa notched a late equaliser to hold Mumbai's Air India 1-1 in a National Football League match at the Cooperage in Mumbai on Sunday.

Ebullient striker Paresh Shivalkar put Air India ahead in the fifth minute of the match before Joe Rodrigues notched the equaliser for the Goans eight minutes from the end.

Air India custodian Raju Ekka was declared the man-of-the-match for his sterling display under the bar.

The one point earned from the tie helped Sporting finish the league with 25 points from 17 matches while Air India concluded their engagements with 19 points.
