As the auction of Indian Super League football team has begun, the football fans from the NE are not being able to keep calm.
Yes Folks! It’s the season of #letsfootball
All the teams from the country have managed to get their hold on the best of the players and our very much beloved Highlanders are not far behind.
Reunions after reunions, in this season, NEUFC has Lalrempuia Fanai, Nirmal Chettri, Reagan Singh, Aiborlang Khonjee and Seiminlen Douglee back in their team once again.
NEUFC’s first pick was Halicharan Narzary, who was also previously a part of the Highlanders.
Rowlin Borges and TP Rehenesh are also a part of the Highlanders who will be the midfielder and goalkeeper respectively to the team.
The NEUFC also brought in talents like Ravi Kumar, Gursimrat Gill, LalrindikaRalte, Robert Lalthlamuana, Malemnganba Meitei to the team.
Abdul Hakku, a defender of the Hyderabad football team last year, is now in the NEUFC team.
In the final round of the #heroisldraft, Sushil Meitei had made it to the NEUFC team.
With NEUFC’s spontaneous tweets, it looks like they are well prepared and happy to have the players on board.
And we are more than excited for NEUFC having these awesome players, for we surely can’t wait for this season of football to begin.
Another piece of good news for the Northeast. Eugeneson Lyngdoh from Meghalaya becomes the most expensive player in 2017 ISL Auction as he was signed by Atletico de Kolkata for a whopping 1.1 Crore.
