The newbies earned their first three points in the I-League with a 3-0 victory over the north eastern outfit...Welcome to Goal's new I-League feature: Top and Flop. For every game, a candidate will be put forward, as chosen by Goal, who deserves recognition for achieving something special. It won't necessarily be the best player in the league - but whoever we nominate will have done something amazing. In the same vein, we will also name a player whose performance wasn’t up to the mark on the given day and eventually came to hurt his side.
|TOP: JOHN JOHNSON
The 25-year-old was rock solid at the back with no Rangdajied player able to get past him. Johnson also joined his team in the attack showcasing his strength in the air with some exceptionally good headers, one of which ended in the back of the opponent's net in the 33rd minute.
| FLOP: RESTOM KHRIAM
He allowed Beikhokhei Beingaichho to cut past him which resulted in the Bengaluru player crossing the ball for Sean Rooney to double the home side's lead in the 57th minute. He was sluggish all throughout and gave away possession cheaply on countless occasions.
