We review NEUFC's campaign in the ISL and look at the reason they failed to make the playoffs once again.
THE ISL GRAND FINALE, complete with its magnificent setting in Kochi and the star-studded VIP gallery, was set to be an occasion that eclipsed all other in the 3 year history of the private tournament. In the end, the contest that followed on the pitch was hardly worth writing home about, and the winner had to be decided by penalties.
NorthEast United FC again finished short of the semi-finals. We pick 5 individuals who did well to help the team with decent results or those that affected the team's good showing in the league.
NORTHEAST UNITED did everything right in the lead up to the ISL, but unforeseen circumstances and lack of squad depth caused them to finish just below the playoff qualification mark yet again.
