ISL 2017/18:North East United FC vs Jamshedpur FC Player ratings

The wait for the first ISL goal this season continued, as we got another stalemate during the match between NorthEast United FC and debutants Jamshedpur FC. It all started well for both the time, as the highlanders dominated the first quarter and then Jamshedpur FC balanced the tie. Both the teams got a handful of opportunities, but unluckily failed to capitalise on them. Nevertheless, it was an entertaining 90-minutes of football, with some special performances.

Here are LNTUP’s player ratings for the match:

North East United:

Starting XI-

Rehenesh Thumbirumbu Paramba~ 8.5/10
The Highlanders’ shot stopper wasn’t the best player of the match, but did his job under the posts. He saved all the shots that came his way including a shot from Azuka from 10 metres out.

Abdul Hakku~ 8/10
Definitely one of the best players of the game. He attracted everyone with his clinical defending.

Jose Goncalves~ 7/10
He did not draw much attention with any kind of fancy defending. What he did was no-nonsense defending that was enough for NEUFC. He was clinical in clearing his lines.

Robert Lalthamanua~ 8.5/10
The left back left I-League giants East Bengal to sign for his home team. He was an absolute beauty to watch in the game. His defending skills combined with his crosses from the left flank were a major part of North East’s football against Jamshedpur.

Nirmal Chettri~ 7/10
He was tough to beat and provided the much needed help Highlander’s stoppers. His long balls from the right flank also set NEUFC forwards in attack.

Marcinho de Souza Gregório Júnior~ 9.5/10
The player of the match, this player was at the best of his form. This left-footed Brazilian initiated most of the attacks for the home team. He even got a chance to score in the first few minutes from a close range, but he shot it over the bar and his header in the 65th minute hit the post and came back.

Odair Fortes~ 8.5/10
His combination with Marcinho was the one to watch out for. If this combination clicks in the long run, this is going to be one of the greatest attacking duos this season. Playing through walls and with his through balls, set the Highlander’s forwards in attack.

Adilson Goiano~ 8/10
One of the greatest midfielders to have dawned in the United jersey, Adilson was the unsung hero of the match. His ball holding capabilities and distributing abilities were of great use to the Highlanders.

Lalrindika Ralte~ 7.5/10
Arguably, said to have the best left foot in India, this winger could devastate defences with his skills. He could do better than what he offered against Jamshedpur. He took a few long rangers that were of no harm to the Jharkhand side, but some of his through balls to the number 99 of the Highlander’s could have caused great trouble in the opponent defence.

Seminlen Doungel~ 8/10
Had a great start to the game. He kept the flanks alive as well as shifted into the middle sometimes when needed. Covered all the empty spaces between the midfield and the forward, but faded away as the game progressed.

Danilo Cezares~ 6/10
The number 99 worked pretty hard throughout the game. The Brazilian was close to scoring many times but unfortunately missed each and every time. He was close to scoring this season’s opening goal at the hour mark but failed to do so from an one-one-one situation.

Holicharan Narzary~ 9/10
The Indian international was put into the game on the 71st minute replacing Doungel. Each and every time he got the ball, he threatened the opponent defence either with a shot or with an amazing cross.

Luis Alfonso Paez~ 8/10
The 31 year old Colombian was great for the 25 minutes he played. He used his long steps to glide past challenges and passed the ball whenever he understood that he could no more dribble past the defence. A perfect team man and a proper striker, this man will threaten defences in the future.

Jamshedpur FC

Starting XI-

Subrata Paul~ 9.5/10
Definitely the best player for the away team, he could have been the man of the match. He was the saviour of his team, making a handful of one-one-one saves. He proved again that age is just a number, as he continued holding his best form.

Souvik Ghosh~ 7/10
One of the most prominent side-backs in the country, Ghosh was kept busy on the sidelines and was the first choice player for taking the set-pieces. He will definitely be of great help to the debutant’ in the remaining matches.

Tiri~ 9/10
He lived up to his reputation as one of the best centre backs to have ever played in the Super League. His clinical defending and his superb fitness was a worry to the Highlanders. He did what he had to do and also contributed in attacks.

Anas Edathodika~ 8/10
Rock solid at the back, the most expensive Indian defender showed why he is one of the best. Though it was not his best game, yet he did his work perfectly, just as the doctor ordered.

Shouvik Chakroborty ~ 8/10
Generally playes as a defensive midfielder, but had to play as a right back. He fitted well in
