01.11.2014 : FC GOA( 2-1 ) DELHI DYNAMOS ( FT.)
FC Goa post-match press conference. :: Press conference was addressed by Coach Zico and player Shaikh Jewel Raja

What was going on through your mind during the last few minutes of the game?
I'm an optimistic guy. I believe till the end that the best will happen. As a player and a coach I lost and won many games at the last minute. In football anything can happen. I thank all the FC Goa supporters for the love, encouragement and support we received through the weeks. Even when we were not winning. We can now gift them this win. It's the first win of many.

Can you update us on the injuries of Andre Santos and Gregory?
Andre Santos was hit on his leg at the last game. It happened again this time so he couldn't continue with the game. Gregory was complaining about his knee before the game so I thought it best to keep him out. I think Andreí injury is not too serious, but maybe Gregory's may be because its his knee and its more complicated. We will have to wait 48 hours to access the seriousness of the situation.

Jewel, Romeo and Mandar played well. Will they have more chances in next games?
I always say to my players, I don't have 11, I have 27 players so everyone has to be ready to play. Everyone will get an opportunity to play so they have to be prepared always. When I came here, Jewel was the first 11, but in a friendly he was injured. Now he's better and I'm happy for him. He played well. All the players are ready and will get an opportunity to play.

Jewel you scored and got man of the match. You must be happy?
Yes I'm happy. I was injured and recovered slowly. Thanks to my coach, who trusted me and offered me a chance to play the match. I'm very happy

Whats the problems with Indian football?
From what I see, there should be better grassroots development especially at the under 15 and under 17 level. If we prepare then when they are young, we will be able to see better footballers and can nurture talent. Indian coaches can see such good players at the ISL and they can show their younger players the techniques.

The team has been missing chances. Would you be frustrated if they missed chances and didn't score?
Im very happy because they created opportunities even though they didnít score earlier. It shows the progress we have made over the weeks. Sometimes they choose the wrong option when they need to play a particular move. There are things the players need to learn. But it doesn't happen overnight.
We have to wait and be patient. Results will follow. At practice I try to teach players to make certain moves. There was pressure to win today, so the team may have been a bit reckless and we missed some opportunities. But I'm happy to see them fight and give their everything.

FC Goa pre-match press conference :: Press conference was addressed by Coach Zico and player Ranti Martins.

31.10.2014 (ISL GOA PRESS RELEASE) : Goa has played four matches with just one point and at the bottom of the table. Has this kind of performance come as a surprise to you?

Zico: Football never surpises me. So, we lost some games but we can also win and move on. We created some good opportunities and had chances but didnít manage to concert them, even though we played well. This is the magic about football. Sometimes a team plays very well but doesn't manage to score, while another team comes and scores. But then, thatís how football is. Itís all about football.

Many foreign players have come to India for the ISL. Your thoughts on that?
Zico: I think the difference with Japan was that they didn't bring in too many foreign players. In my opinion at the ISL itís not too good to have too many foreigners playing. The minimum of 5 Indian players is too less in my opinion. Since it's the ISL, we have to encourage more Indian football.

FC Goa will miss a lot of players at the next match. Some injured, some not fit, suspended. How difficult will it be to play well tomorrow?
Zico: We never think it's only 11 players, we have a group of 27 players. All 27 players are ready to play. Some are injured but the others are fit and ready to play. Players have been picked for the team because they are good and they are prepared to play. So I'm not too worried about that. I told them that they have to be prepared to play at any time, in any situation. We will play 11 against 11.

Ranti, you have played at the I-league and ISL. Have scored high at I-league, but not at the ISL. Is the standard of football higher in the ISL?
Ranti: There are only 2 strikers, Dudu and me, who have played for the I-league and ISL. There are also a lot of foreign players making the top 11. Also, we have been playing only for a couple of weeks but that doesn't mean we shouldnít score. Itís about patience.

Coach, AIFF has announced that the ban for Habbas has been reduced from 4 to 2 games. Your comments?
Zico: Congratulations to their lawyers.
