Jayganesh to lead Goa in Santosh Trophy


With their performance in the previous editions not up to the mark, five-time winners Goa hope that their trip to Cochin (Kerala) for the 67th National Football Championship for the Santosh Trophy proves to be lucky this time.
Goa coach Anthony De Souza seemed confident that his team, a mixture of youth and experience, will give their best shot at the trophy to bring back home in what could be their sixth Santosh crown, which has been eluding them for sometime.
Speaking at a press conference here on Friday, to announce the Kingfisher-sponsored Goa team, De Souza said that he is happy about the fact that an opportunity has come his way to coach the Goan team. "Over the past few days the boys have been trying their best to gel well and train hard to be in the XI. The motivation levels are good," said De Souza, highlighting that some players will be debuting for Goa. [NT]
