The second day of the country’s largest football league, ISL, saw a sharp rise. Northeast United beat strong Mumbai City FC 1-0 on Saturday. This is his fourth win in all 13 matches against Mumbai. He had to bear the loss in a match in January last season.
Northeast got the first penalty in the 49th minute. Kawasi Appya, the star player of the team, scored a goal to give the team a 1-0 lead. Earlier, both teams failed to score at half time. In the 42nd minute of the match, Ahmed Jahu of Mumbai was dismissed by the referee. He was shown a red card for dangerous handling.
Mumbai City team has never won ISL. He hoped to change his fortunes under new coach Sergio Lobera, but the team had already suffered a setback in the first match. FC Goa had won the Super Cup in 2019 under the guidance of Lopera, while the team had also registered a runner-up spot in the ISL.
On the other hand, the team of Northeast United FC has come under the guidance of new coach Gerard Nuss to give up the disappointment due to the poor performance of the previous season. In the first defense match, he has shown hope of a brilliant defense.
