FC Goa Key Players: Lucio, Jofre Mateu, Mandar Rao Dessai
The team will host its home matches at the Fatorda stadium in Margao, which has been their home ground for the past two editions as well. They have a huge fan base despite being the most poorly sponsored team in the ISL.
Zico’s carefully assembled side went on to make the final in the second edition of the ISL 2 after finishing on top of the standings at the end of the league stage. They were placed second in the league stage in the inaugural edition of the competition and made the finals even then. They lost the first final to Atletico de Kolkata courtesy of a last minute header. A similar story played out in last season’s final as Stiven Mendoza inspired Chennaiyin FC to a 3-2 win.
Former Indian international goalkeeper Subhashish Roy Chowdhury, Denzil Franco, Fulgano Cardozo, Romeo Fernandes and Robin Singh are the notable Indian players on their roster. Forward Robin Singh has switched allegiances from the Delhi Dynamos FC after an underwhelming season at the capital.
Spanish midfielder Joffre will pull the strings for Zico’s team in the third edition of the competition. Former Bayern Munich, Internazionale and Brazilian captain and defender Lucio has been retained as their marquee player for the second season.
Frenchman Gregory Arnolin, Brazilian forwards Reinaldo and Rafael Coelho have also confirmed their participation in ISL 3 with Goa. Arnolin was a major player at the back for FC Goa last season and he will look to play a similar role this season as well.
Brazilian trio of Rafael Dumas, Richarlyson and Matheus Trindade also signed up for FC Goa this past week before embarking on their pre-season tour of Brazil. FC Goa team players list is placed below.
