Hernan Santana’s delightful free-kick failed to hand NorthEast United FC (NEUFC) a win as they were held to a 1-1 draw by FC Goa in the Indian Super League at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim on Friday.

Santana curled in a superb free-kick in just the second minute of the game but Airan Cabrera’s goal in the 39th minute helped Goa draw level.

NorthEast United were off to a flying start courtesy of Santana’s individual brilliance. The 31-year old Spaniard curled in a delectable free-kick at the near post leaving Dheeraj Moirangthem with no chance as the ball pinged in off the crossbar. Goa slowly started growing into the game and got the equaliser moments before the halftime whistle when Cabrera nodded in a corner with no one marking him.

There were no goals in the second half, meaning Goa moved up a rung to eighth place having 13 points from 11 games while NorthEast United remained 10th with nine points from 11 games.
