ISL: NorthEast United beat FC Goa 2-0

NorthEast United beat FC Goa 2-0 to register their second consecutive win in the Indian Super League 2016 today at Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium, Guwahati.

For the Highlanders, Uruguayan striker Emiliano Alfaro scored twice in 20th and 62nd minutes. FC Goa goalkeeper Laxmikanth Kattimani handed NorthEast United the lead on a platter in the 20th minute thanks to a howler when his desperate clearance deflected from Emiliano Alfaro onto his own goal. Alfaro struck again in the 62nd minute to take the game away from FC Goa's reach.  

NorthEast United had beaten Kerala Blaster in their campaign opener at the same venue on October 1.
