NorthEast United almost claimed all three points before a last gasp Manvir Singh header rescued a point for FC Goa in a 2-2 draw in their Indian Super League encounter at the Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium, Guwahati.
Goals from Asamoah Gyan and Redeem Tlang in the 54th and 74th minute respectively cancelled out Hugo Boumous' opening goal for FC Goa in the first half but Manvir Singh rose above everyone to land a point for the Gaurs.
Sergio Lobera seemed to have taken note of Jackichand Singh's contribution after coming off the bench against Bengaluru. The winger replaced Seiminlen Doungel, while Hugo Boumous started in place of Manvir Singh which meant that Corominas once again lead the line of attack for the Gaurs.
Mislav Komorski and Panagiotic came in place of Wayne Vaz and Nikhil Kadam for the hosts led by coach Robert Jarni.
The first goal came at the half hour mark in the game after Boumous slotted home Brandon's past Subhasish after beating the off-side flag to hand the Gaurs a 1-0 advantage, which they held on to till the half-time whistle.
NorthEast came out stronger in the second half and were rewarded with a goal in the 54th minute courtesy of none other than Asamoah Gyan. Redeem Tlang handed the Highlanders a 2-1 lead in the 74th minute and it almost turned out to be the winner before Manvir Singh took centre-stage.
However, the peak of the game's action came just before Manvir's goal as Len Doungel was shown a red card for his silly kick on Chaves in the calf which led to quite a serious spat on the pitch between the two teams.
Then, in the 96th minute of the game, Manvir towered to bury his header into the back of the net after Fall directed his header from a long lob towards the young Indian as he salvaged a precious point for FC Goa.
