Top 5 wingers in ISL season 2
The second edition of the Indian Super League was full of goals and it rained goals throughout the tournament. Teams went all out to seal a spot in the semi-finals and played with a lot of freedom in an attempt to try and get wins and improve their goal difference at the same time.While strikers get all the glory for scoring the goals, it’s the wingers who do all the hard work to create them and sometimes get on the end of the passes to score them as well. The final too saw great attacking play, with Chennaiyin FC defeating FC Goa 3-2. Here, we take a look at the top 5 wingers in the Indian Super League this season:
#1 Sameehg Doutie
Atletico de Kolkata finished the group stages in a comfortable 2nd spot and Doutie played an important role in getting them there. After they lost three games mid-season, they had to change things up in terms of the way they were working and Sameehg Doutie’s introduction into the team helped them change their fortunes.
Earlier, Atletico de Kolkata boss Antonio Habas was going more with other established players to start games, but following their mid-season slump, he was ready to experiment and the South African was given a chance to impress.
He surprised everyone with his performances and effectiveness and scored 3 goals and gave 6 assists in the 12 appearances he made. The South African winger was one of the best players in the league due to his consistently brilliant performances, and helped his team reach the semi-finals, where they lost out to Chennaiyin FC 4-2.
