Two teams desperate to win ended up splitting points as NorthEast United FC (NEUFC) drew 1-1 with Delhi Dynamos at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium here on Tuesday.
It was an impressive performance from the visitors who recovered from the 5-1 thrashing at Mumbai in their last match
Portuguese midfielder Simao struck within seconds of entering the pitch as Northeast United FC rallied to hold Delhi Dynamos to an exciting 1-1 draw and spoil host skipper Roberto Carlos' first start in the Indian Super League on Tuesday.
As the ball curled into the net leaving Dynamos goalkeeper Antonio Doblas clueless, the huge army of Northeast United fans who had trooped into the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in large numbers, went berserk. The Mexcian wave was witnessed a couple of times but the new ‘torch wave’was on a display often, with the crowd switching on their mobile phone torch as stretching it full length.
Taking the attack, Francis Dadzie, Diomansy Kamara and Sanju — three of the five players of NEUFC who came into the team after missing the Mumbai match — were on the go from the start but failed to find the breakthrough.
In fact, for the first 20 minutes, NEUFC virtually camped in the Dynamos half, the host hardly getting a look-in.
