Super Cup 2018 : NorthEast United FC vs Gokulam Kerala, 5 Talking Points
Henry Kisekka scored a well-taken brace as Gokulam Kerala registered a routine 2-0 victory over NorthEast United in Thursday's Super Cup match.
The southern outfit was ruthless and deserved to win against an uninspired NEUFC, who were extremely wasteful in the final third of the pitch. Here are the major talking points from tonight's intense game.
#1 Impressive Gokulam play with a lot of intensity
Tonight, not for one minute did Gokulam seem shy to pass the ball through the ground. They refused to crumble under pressure and looked at ease playing deft one-two's and made great use of the wings.
The likes of Henry Kissekka and Arjun Jayaraj created a number of problems for NorthEast United. They were clever with their movements and outran their markers all night long. More importantly, when they did not have the ball, they made sure to press NorthEast's backline who looked on edge.
Salman K was a live-wire down the right wing and marauded forward every-time he found space and the opportunity. He whipped in numerous dangerous crosses and displayed a lot of maturity.
