ISL MEDIA DAY : COACHES VIEW

KFC NEWS - 12.11.17 : ISL observed Media Day at a function in a city hotel at Kolkata and introduced it's four franchisees, Delhi Dynamos, North East United , Jamshedpur FC and ATK . The chief coach one Indian and one International footballers of the teams expressed their views regarding the forth coming ISL which will going to commence on and from the 17th April.

The coaches and footballers of all the franchisees are of the opinion that ISL will be more competitive in this edition.

VIEWS OF THE COACHES :

MIGUEL ANGEL (DELHI DYNAMOS): "Now the league is better. More team which means it will be more competitive. It's growing every year which is good for the country. I hope next season the duration of the league increases to nine months." While analysing his team Miguel said, "I like possession but the reason is for better finishing for goals. We don't want possession for our enjoyment. It depends on the opponent as well. If you have possession you can control the game. It's very important. But the most important is to score goals. In football you cannot stick to one tactics. I compete for winning. Ball possession is important for winning not for enjoyment."

Regarding the first match against Pune City FC Miguel said, "I know their team. I know Lucca who played in Atletico Paranaense with me. Marcelinho is a former Delhi Dynamos player. (Ranko) Popovic plays his team in a 4-3-3 formation. I want a winning mentality in my team."

JOAO CARLOS PIRES DE DEUS (NORTH EAST UNITED): We have the best Indian player in our squad in my opinion, which is Rowllin Borges. Hali Charan (Narzary) and him are both part of the national team and we have other quality domestic talents as well. “Our aim is to reach the semi-finals, but football is a complex game and not easy. However, it can be made simple with definite ideas. My players understand very well what our concept of the game is. So, let’s start as quickly as possible and enjoy it.”

STEVE COPPLE (JAMSHEDPUR FC) : “As a new club, everything is brand new. Those of you who make the trip (to Jamshedpur) will appreciate the work that is going on in the stadium. I don't think I can say anything about expectations, because it's a new team that doesn't have much experience in the league. But we’re hoping to go as far as possible. While interacting Steve added "India and ISL is an Unique experinece."

TEDDY SHERINGHAM (ATK): "I was initially skeptical and asked myself whether I needed to come all the way to India to manage. But then I spoke with people - Steve Coppell (Jamshedpur FC's current head coach) of course and even David James (former Kerala Blasters head coach) and they all had good things to say. Then when I was told we'll be playing in front of 60,000 supporters, I thought that's the sort of atmosphere I want to manage in, It will be an obvious challenge but if it came down to choosing to play in front of 3,000 or 60,000, I would choose the latter. I expect a large number of fans even at the Salt Lake stadium during our home games."

Sheringham confirmed that ATK will be without their star signing Robbie Keane, who is nursing an achilles injury and will not be part of the opener.

THE FORTH EDITION OF INDIAN SUPER LEAGUE WILL KICK OF ON 17TH NOVEMBER WHEN TWO TIMES CHAMPIONS ATK WILL FACE KERALA BLASTERS FC AT KOCHI

FIFA MEDIA RELEASE: Brazil claimed third place at the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017 with a 2-0 victory over Mali at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan Stadium in Kolkata on Saturday.
A goalless first half saw the African champions show more urgency and intent to break the deadlock with efforts from Boubacar Haidara, captain Mohamed Camara, and Salam Jiddou. However, a lack of finish and good goalkeeping by Brazil�s Gabriel Brazao kept the Eaglets off the score sheet.
It was early in the second half that Brazil won the third place play-off in very fortunate circumstances. Alan made a run towards the Mali goal before striking a rolling shot at the target. It looked a routine save for Eaglets goalkeeper Youssouf Koita, but he allowed the bouncing ball to slip past him and into the net.
Though the West Africans tried their best to find an equaliser, Brazil sealed victory with a late goal from substitute Yuri Alberto. It is the second time that the South Americans have finished third at a U-17 World Cup.

FINAL SCORE : BRAZIL 2-0 MALI
90+4': Brazil finished third as they overcome the challenge of Mali by scoring two important goals in the second session. Alan scored the first goal which was a gift of Mali defense and goal keeper. Koita, the goal keeper of Mali failed to collected a feeble shot from Alan from age of the 18 yards. Mali had a series of attack in the second session but it was Gabriel Brazao, the goal keeper of Brazil came as barrier in front of Mali.
45+1': The first session ended goal less. Mali had a complete dominance in the first session created a number of opportunity to score, but denied by Brazilian goal keeper Gabriel Brazao in several occasions. Brazil had some rare attacks in the first half failed to create any impact in Mali's central defense.
