Redeem Tlang: Ogbeche-Rowllin are very important for the team

NorthEast United FC will look to cling onto their one-goal advantage from the first leg when they face off against Bengaluru FC in the second leg of their Hero Indian Super League (Hero ISL) 2018-19 semi-final clash at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium on Monday.

Before the match, caught up with one of NorthEast's goal scorers from the first leg, Redeem Tlang, for an exclusive pre-match interview. Here are the excerpts.

Thoughts on the first leg.

The tactics were to go and play and press high from the first minute and attack them. So, we did that and I think, that was very important to lead us towards our goal.

How important is it to have Rowllin Borges and Bartholomew Ogbeche fit for the second leg?

It’s very important. They are a very important part of the team, so I hope, they can come back very soon. We need them.

Thoughts on your goal in the first leg.

I think it was a very important goal in the semi-final tie. We won 2-1 and that goal helped the team and I’m very happy about that.

Who will be the players to watch out for?

There are many - (Sunil) Chhetri, Miku, there are lots of good players there, but we will work on it.
