Khassa Camara and Mathias Coureur are two NorthEast United players to watch out for. Both players can be a nightmare for defenders to deal with, and are versatile enough to play across a number of positions. FC Goa’s skipper, Edu Bedia, has been pivotal in the midfield, and is undoubtedly the team's main player.
