An enthralling contest comes to an end. 1-1. Action on the pitch and on the side-lines. Goa has just two points from its first three matches. Nus’ defensive organisation at NEUFC has passed another test. Goa had plenty of possession (68) and passes (580) but it could have just two shots on target. Northeast remains 2nd in the table after 3 matches.
Igor Angulo equalised for FC Goa three minutes after the team went a goal down with a deft finish from a brilliant Brandon pass. Idrissa Sylla gave Northeast United the lead as he earned a penalty after being brought down by Ivan Gonzalez. He converted it in the second time for asking after the first attempt was nullified for encroachment.
Idrissa Sylla’s first half penalty and Igor Angulo’s 43rd minute equaliser remains the only goals in the match.
The Gaurs fought until the end but only managed to earn a point against the Highlanders.
