Indian Super League’s one of the most supported and loved clubs in the country, Northeast United FC (NEUFC), kept all their fans waiting for long at a time when other nine teams of the league were busy trading in some of the big names in football the world has ever witnessed. 

 


But the fans were in for a treat today when the club decided to reveal all eight of its newly signed international players within a span of 4 hours. Northeast United were criticized heavily during the intensely fought players auction on July 22 for relying more on purchasing young regional players rather than experienced national players.

With the iaddition of these foreign players, the team now looks like a balanced one with proper mix of talent, youth and experience. The foreign players are relatively young with most of them in their late 20’s or early 30’s. The international exposure these players have gained playing for various top rated leagues around the world will surely boost NEUFC’s chances this year and help the young Indian players to gain a lot of experience.

The eight signed foreign players are 

 


 

Defenders: Jose Concalves (Portugal), Sambinha (Portugal), Martin Damian Diaz Pena (Uruguay)

Midfielders: Adilson Goiano (Brazil), Márcio de Souza Gregório Junior (Brazil)

Forwards: Luis Alfonso Paez (Colombia), Odair Fortes (Cape Verde), Wellington Alves da Silva (Brazil)
