Goa, Pune hunt for first points

FC Goa chief coach Zico is confident that his team can script a turnaround as they play their first home match of the season against FC Pune City in the Indian Super League at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Fatorda, on Saturday. FC Goa were handed a rare defeat by NorthEast United FC in their opening clash and coach Zico now needs to inspire his squad to register the first win of the season. FC Goa looked good in patches against NorthEast United FC. They did not score against their rivals but the Brazilian legend remains confident in his team’s ability to fight back. “I think we played well. We tried our best, we fought but we couldn’t overcome them. This is just the beginning of the league. The first year too we started the league with a defeat but later we overcame it. We have to keep going to work on that,” said Zico. FC Pune City have no such injury concerns and assistant coach Miguel remains confident that they will open their account soon.
