English in Action

English in action: 1st December

The start of advent sees no rest for Englishmen abroad, with another two involved yesterday.

India: Goa 3-0 NorthEast United (Indian Super League)

James Keene in action earlier in the season

NorthEast United suffered a heavy defeat as they fell to a 3-0 loss away to Goa in the Indian Super League.

English forward James Keene came on for NorthEast in the 35th minute, after an injury to a team-mate. By this time, his side were already one goal down.

His introduction could do nothing to stop the flow of Goa goals though, as they grabbed another two before the end of the match to win 3-0. Keene has now made nine appearances without a goal in the Indian Super League.

Netherlands: Ajax II 4-0 VVV Venlo (Eerste Divisie)
VVV Venlo were on the wrong end of a 4-0 drubbing as they were thrashed by Ajax’s second team in the Eerste Divisie, the Netherlands’ second tier.

English winger Medy Elito started the game for VVV but was substituted at half time with his side 1-0 down.

The change seemed to have an adverse effect though, with his side conceding a further three goals in the second half with the Englishman off the pitch.
