Jamshedpur FC returns after a long break to venture into the Hero Super Cup journey by taking the field against FC Goa tomorrow at Kalinga Stadium, Bhubhaneshwar. The Hero ISL 2018 – 19 season ended on a disappointing note for the club, but ever since the ISL downfall, the team has been working hard and are hungry to lift the Hero Super Cup trophy.
Jamshedpur FC were supposed to play against Churchill Brothers on the 2nd of April, but since the game got shelved, they received a direct walkover into the third quarter-final to battle against FC Goa, whom on the other hand are in this journey with a strong motive to win the title as to avenge their disappointing Hero ISL final encounter.
FC Goa have already begun their Hero Super Cup journey on a victorious note by defeating Indian Arrows (3 – 1) to reach the quarters. It is going to be a tough fight for Jamshedpur FC, but with all the important players on board, tomorrow’s game seems to provide the fans across India a visual treat. On the other hand, FC Goa also have most of their key players playing tomorrow, with Ferran Corominas attacking at the front and Edu Bedia playing behind him.
When asked about the importance of Jamshedpur FC’s Hero Super Cup journey, and their opponent, FC Goa, Cesar Ferrando stated; “It’s going to be a difficult match for us. We competed in Indian Super League, but we lost. We are about to begin our Hero Super Cup journey and this match is very important. FC Goa were the runner-up, last season. They are a good team and they play very well. My team is training very hard and I think we are ready to play. We hope we will demonstrate a good game and bring home the trophy.”
Our Indian Spider-man, Subrata Paul spoke about the opponent and the paramount importance of Hero Super Cup, “First of all, FC Goa is a very good side. In Indian Super League, they played really well. Whereas unfortunately, we couldn’t qualify for the playoffs although we displayed a good potential. So, Hero Super Cup is very important for us and we will use this opportunity to bring home the trophy.”
Cesar Ferrando was also asked about the amount of training sessions the team were under, he said, “After ISL, we had a break for only 10 days and since then we’ve been training really hard for the Hero Super Cup. This is very serious competition for us, and we can’t afford to lose the trophy. We want to show our respect for Hero Super Cup and for that we have to train very hard, every day. And until this moment, that’s what we’ve been doing.”
Jamshedpur FC will be facing one of the strongest contenders in the Hero Super Cup, tomorrow, to avenge the ISL collapse while also defying odds against bringing the trophy home to Jamshedpur and feast the ever-loving fans for their unending and constant support throughout.
