Liston Colaco’s lightning pace and deceitful footwork did the trick for Hyderabad FC (HFC) as the youngster struck his first goals of the season and powered his team to a 4-2 win over NorthEast United FC (NEUFC) at the Tilak Maidan Stadium in Vasco on Friday.
The triumph takes HFC past Jamshedpur FC and FC Goa to the third spot on the Indian Super League (ISL 2020-21) table while NEUFC remains seventh.

HFC got off to a flying start as it broke the deadlock in the third minute when Joel Chianese stormed down the right, cut in between two defenders, and laid it for Aridane Santana to net his sixth goal of the campaign. NEUFC had opportunities to strike back with Idrissa Sylla and Luis Machado having a crack at goal, but Laxmimant Kattimani did well to keep them out.
