Jerry Lalrinzuala and Inigo Calderon are expected to complete the four-man defensive unit. While Jerry has forced his way to become the side’s No.1 left back, 36-year-old Inigo was adjudged the ‘Fittest player of the season’ last edition. With the quota for overseas players reduced to seven, CFC saw the departure of two creative midfielders in Rene Mihelic and Jaime Gavilan. But the side is bolstered by the signing of Andrea Orlandi, a player who can feature in six different positions, according to Gregory. Raphael Augusto will continue to pull the strings in midfield alongside Anirudh Thapa. Despite having a slow start, Gregory Nelson caught the eye by bursting in the left flank, keeping the opponents on their toes. He will hope to better his stats and so will fellow winger Francisco Fernandes. The Goan-based lad has been going about his business silently and has earned huge praise from the head coach. As Dhanpal Ganesh is set to miss the first half of the ISL 2018-19, new recruit Pandiyan Sinivasan will be the only local lad to watch out for in the initial few games. Jeje Lalpekhlua, fondly referred to as the ‘Mizo Sniper’, will lead the forward line.
