FC Goa vs. Chennai City FC - Clifford Miranda’s boys looking to get second win on the trot

SPORTS-FOOTBALL-DURAND
Kolkata, Aug 13 (UNI) The FC Goa will have their second game against defending I-League champions Chennai City tomorrow with their eyes set on another three points after overcoming Army Green in their Durand Cup opener.
The 1-0 win in their last game sees the young Gaurs sit in second position at the moment with Real Kashmir currently in pole position thanks to their two wins in as many games.
Chennai City, meanwhile, come into the game at the back of 1-0 loss at the hands of Real Kashmir thanks to a Danish Farooq strike in the 90th minute. The team from down south has named a squad that is quite different from the one that conquered the I-League and is composed of only Indians – looking at the Durand Cup as an avenue to give their youngsters vital exposure.
Clifford Miranda saw his side overcome defending champions Army Green in their first encounter thanks to a first-half strike from Liston Colaco. The former Indian international looks confident to carry the momentum into a game which he feels will be another tough test.
“Chennai City is a team that I admire. It was a commendable effort from them to win the I-League and what was really worth appreciating was that they had a philosophy of football that they believed in and stuck to till the last moment,” stated Miranda.
“But I believe in my boys. I believe that if we play to our potential, we will be able to come out of this with all three points. The Goa Pro League last season has helped these young boys and I believe that we can overcome some really strong sides.
“I expect Wednesday’s game to be a really tough one. They will be up against a side that will be eager to come back from a loss but we ourselves have a really good chance to qualify for the semi-finals and will be giving our all to get all three points.”
