thumbnail Hello,

The north eastern outfit thumped United SC 4-0 at home to suggest that there may be life in them yet...

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

After being brought in with just around 10 minutes to go for the final whistle, Lalnunpuia (center) romped in two goals in a span of six minutes to complete a sound drubbing of United SC. It was alertness shown by Lalnunpuia on both occasions that resulted in goals, the first being a gentle tap-in and the second from an one-on-one with the goalkeeper.

 

FLOP: JAYANTA PAUL

Brought in for an injured Sangram Mukherjee, Paul had a harrowing time in front of the nets. The goalkeeper fumbled while collecting a lofted ball in the 86th minute, giving Lalnunpuia his first breakthrough. Considering that the rest of the goals were well earned by the hosts, it was still a forgettable outing for the United SC custodian.
