sports Updated: May 31, 2011 00:40 IST

Bengal on Monday retained the Santosh Trophy with a 2-1 victory over Manipur in the summit clash to win their 31st title of the national championships.

Strikers Branco Cardozo (21st minute) and Budhiram Tudu (48th) scored for Bengal while Manipur pulled one back through Nabachandra Singh in the 75th minute at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium.

Branco put Bengal ahead when he blasted a Francis Fernandes pass into the back of the net from the top of the box as Bengal went into the interval with a one-goal lead.
