Rangdajied ran out winners over the Red Lizards that saw two injury time goals for the home side in a captivating encounter...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: T. LALNUNPUIA
He was brought in as late as the 81st minute when Rangdajied, still trailing by a goal, decided to go all out in attack. Following Kim Yong’s eqauliser in stoppage time, Lalnunpuia scored the winner with a brilliant right footer from well outside 30 yards to secure a highly improbable win for Rangdajied.
|FLOP: POIBIANG POHSHNA
Pohshna had a torrid time on Wednesday and was exposed particularly when the visitors made it 2-0 in the 34th minute. Arata Izumi crossed from the right as Poshna failed to clear it before an advancing Mustapha Riga swelled his miseries as he gave it away for a nimble footed Gurjinder Kumar to chip the ball neatly past goalie Subrata Paul. Pohshna was rightly replaced by David Ngaithe in the 46th minute.
