2-1


FC Goa win and what a win that was! They could not have left it any later to get the winner. The team rife with injuries and suspensions was on the back foot for much of the game. They then went a goal and a man down but never ever gave up. This has been an amazing comeback performance lead by India'a Robin Singh. For NorthEast, this result will be bitterly disappointing after the control they had. 4 losses in a row for the Highlanders.
