FC Goa are all set to take on Delhi Dynamos in the second match of Indian Super League (ISL) 2015 at their home ground Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Fatorda on Sunday 4 October.
Both the teams have made some heavy duty signings for the ongoing edition of the ISL and the coaches would want these heavyweights to churn out results for their respective sides. FC Goa had finished second on the points table in the first season and, on the other hand, Delhi Dynamos would want to turn the wheels of fortune.
Let us take a look at some of the players from Sunday's game between FC Goa and Delhi Dynamos who can make a difference on the pitch:
Romeo Fernandes: FC Goa head coach Zico has always held this Indian midfielder in high regard. Fernandes scored thrice in the first season and got an assist to his name as well. After playing in ISL 2014, Zico helped him play in the South American football league with the Brazilian side Atlético Paranaense. Now he is back again for FC Goa to shine just like he did in the first edition of the ISL.
Gregory Arnolin: This strong centre-back can pose some serious threats through free kicks. He will be like a wall and is likely to go hand-in-hand with his skipper Lucio to solidify Goa's defence. Arnonlin was the skipper of Goa in ISL 2014 and played a crucial role in helping them reach the semifinals.
Reinaldo: This Brazilian forward is an experienced campaigner. At the age of 36, Reinaldo is still hungry for goals. The FC Goa fans would want the Brazilian to come in handy right from the first game. Having played in a number of continents, his experience will be a key factor in Goa's attack.
John Arne Riise: The former Liverpool star will be playing a crucial role in Delhi Dynamos' defence. The left side is Riise's domain and his overlapping style of play can cause a lot of problems for FC Goa defenders. He will also solidify Delhi's defence and nullify the counter attacks by the Goa forwards.
Gustavo dos Santos: This young lad played an important role in ISL 2014 for Delhi Dynamos. Dos Santos bagged five goals and two assists in the first season and he will be looking forward to make an impact in the second edition of ISL as well. His wide range of skills and dribbles are something to watch out for.
Robin Singh: The Indian star forward will begin his quest for goals for the Delhi-based franchise against FC Goa on Sunday. After missing out on the first edition of the ISL, he will be looking to establish himself in this star-studded tournament as well. He can cause a lot of panic in Goa's defence and thus Delhi Dynamos shelled out so much of cash for this Delhi-born lad.
