The game was a preparatory match for both sides as North East United prepare ahead of the ISL season while the India national team prepare for the World Cup qualifier.

Asamoah Gyan who was making his debut for the club came to the rescue as he scored the equalizer for North East United who had gone down by a goal in the 34th minute.

Asamoah Gyan joined NorthEast United from Kayserispor in the Turkish topflight league last month.
