Performance | Northeast United vs Indian Army
NorthEast United FC
NorthEast United FC (NEUFC), nicknamed the Highlanders, participating in Durand Cup for the second time. Their unbeaten group stage run earned them a spot in the quarter-finals. With an undefeated run, they collected seven points in Group D, narrowly trailing FC Goa due to goal difference. Noteworthy was their balanced performance of nine goals scored and three conceded.
Reflecting on their 2022 performance, NEUFC participated in Group D but failed to advance to the quarter-finals. Winning just one out of four matches and accumulating three points, their journey was cut short. However, the lessons from last year’s campaign have undoubtedly played a role in their 2023 resurgence.
Indian Army FT
Indian Army Football Team (IAFT), defying expectations, emerged as group leaders, triumphing over challenges presented by Odisha FC and Rajasthan United FC. Their seven-point haul showcases their experience and tenacity.
The Indian Army’s integral role in this prestigious Durand Cup competition underscores the spirit of competition and unity. The Indian Armed Forces have steadfastly remained part of this legacy, both as organizers and participants.
Key Players to Watch
NEUFC’s focus will center around their goal-scoring talents and defensive pillars. Figures like Parthib Gogoi (who secured a hat trick) and Romain Philippoteaux have played vital roles in locating the net, while Mirshad Michu has maintained an impressive clean sheet record.
IAFT’s standout performers, Lithon Shil and Samir Murmu, have set the standard on the field, significantly contributing to their team’s achievements. Meanwhile, Bhabindra Malla Thakuri and Sayad Bin Abdul Kadir have kept their goal line pristine with their clean sheet performances.
