I League: Kerala FC look to grab points against Punjab FC

Kolkata, Jan 13 (UNI) Gokulam Kerala FC would look to put behind their 1-2 defeat against Chennai City FC in their first match of the Hero I-League and get to winning ways when they host RoundGlass Punjab FC on Thursday at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan in Kolkata, West Bengal.
Speaking at the virtual pre-match press conference, Head Coach Vincenzo Annese said, “The first game was a nervous one for us. We had too many missed passes and we did not keep a lot of possession. It seemed like we were afraid to win. We rushed a lot and this cannot happen in our next match against RoundGlass Punjab FC.”
“In the next match, we need to be calm on the ball and play with patience, gauging when we can go forward. We must keep the ball on our feet and stay away from playing long balls,” he said. “They (RoundGlass Punjab FC) have a very good offensive line and they also have one of the best sides to play out from the back. We need to be on our level best to grab a result.”
