NorthEast United certainly have a problem in goal and manager Nelo Vingada, in all probability, will consider one of the substitute goalkeepers for their next game. Subrata Paul may be one of the most prominent names amongst the Indian football fraternity but this match proved beyond doubt that he is only a pale shadow of his former self.
NorthEast also had problems with their set pieces. There were many instances of Delhi players getting free headers from set pieces and, while it was not a header, Delhi’s goal came from such a circumstance.
Delhi Dynamos for their part, were sloppy in attack. Considering the number of chances that they had, it is a surpise how Delhi didn’t win the match with a two or three goal margin. In the end though, this was the most intense match thus far in this year’s ISL with both the teams playing end-to-end.
