Buckingham in the post-match press conference while talking about the match said: “Like you said, it was our first draw, and I thought we controlled the game for large periods. But what they did was they hit us on the transitional moments.”

ISL 2021-22: “I feel the first goal was at least five yards off-side. And then we need to defend better for the second two (goals). So yes, we want to play a certain way and they have demands both physically and otherwise. But when we attack, we also need to make sure that we are set up defensively.”

Mumbai City FC will now clash with Odisha FC on January 3.
