Sporting Clube de Goa sign ex-Malaga striker Juanfri

In a move to boost their attack, Sporting Clube de Goa have completed the signing of Spanish striker Juan Francisco Garcia Pena here on Thursday.

The 23-year-old, also known as Juanfri, has previously played for La Liga side Malaga and more recently Ecija Balompie. He started his career with local side Union Deportiva Fuengirola de Los Boliches, before moving to Estepona.

"I am looking forward to the new challenge," Juanfri said of his move to the Goan I-League side.

This is the second Spaniard to sign for the Flaming Oranje in little under a week, after defender Angel Berlanga completed his move and scored on his debut in a 2-0 I-League victory over Salgaocar FC on Monday.

"It was a dream to score on my debut in front of our supporters. I am hungry to help my new team-mates win and the club to climb the ladder," Angel said after his first match.  [NT]
