FC Goa gears up for fresh chapter in Durand Cup 2022


FC Goa, on Wednesday, announced its 26-member squad for the Durand Cup, mainly consisting of players from its youth side. The duty of guiding this young side in India’s oldest football tournament was entrusted to Deggie Cardozo, the coach of the Gaur’s developmental side.

For Cardozo, being the defending champion doesn’t invite any added pressure. “I have already experienced the Durand Cup with ATK, so I know the system. We need to get the trophy back. We have prepared well and all my players are eager to get to Calcutta and perform,” he said during a virtual press conference on Thursday.
