The first half ended goalless, the first 0-0 first half of the season. And as the teams go in with a firm mindset to mind their own halves and not go down we may get a second goal-less half as well.
THE OFFICIAL FACEBOOK PAGE OF ISL have posted a video of the marquee player of Northeast United FC Simao Sabrosa talking about his team's expectations this season.
In a cricket obsessed nation, football thrived only in a few pockets and qualitatively was caught out in the 1980s. Now it is nice to see the Indian Soccer league trying to revive interest in the most loved sport around the world, but it will take a lot more than a league to pump prime it.
AFTER A PROMISING START to their ISL campaign with a 3-1 win over Mumbai City, Pune City are ready to host NorthEast United who are eager to turn things around after a defeat in their season opener against Kerala Blasters.
AFTER THE FIRST ROUND in the ongoing ISL, there have emerged a few players who have impressed with their performance, while other big names have let down their team badly, and even been the reason for their loss. We bring you the Tops & Flops.
The fan quotient for both KERALA BLASTERS FC and NORTHEAST UNITED FC is the highest amongst all ISL teams. But in their home match, as expected, the Blasters' fans swept the stadium in yellow, leaving no scope for the Highlanders. While the Keralites had their superstar co-owner Sachin Tendulkar to lead the cheering, the NorthEast team missed Bollywood star John Abraham, their owner. With a record attendance, crossing 60,000, it was truly "yellow mein khelo" in the stadium. We bring you few fan moments from both sides (yes, there were a few brave NEU supporters).
A COUPLE OF BRILLIANT long throws from Rahul Bheke broke the deadlock for Kerala Blasters, and clinched the game for them as they recorded an emphatic 3-1 win over visitors NorthEast United in a housefull first-round fixture of the Indian Super League.
TWO SEASONED FOOTBALLING MINDS meet and test each other in tonight's encounter between Kerala Blasters and NorthEast United. As the franchises prepare to mount their challenge minus their marquee and national team players, it's their coaches that are at the centre of this battle.
