FC Goa manager Juan Ferrando: Of course, when we get three points, we are happy. But today's game was extremely difficult. The players were emotional and the entire squad was anxious in the middle because we want to make the playoffs. So we need to keep winning. Odisha FC is a good team and it is not easy to defeat them. Our style is so easy and simple.
We protect the ball and everything mainly depends on our defence at the back. It is important to control the space and build transitions. I have many youngsters in my side.
My responsibility is to help them improve and protect them from injuries. Ishan Pandita will start when the time is right and he's fine with it. I not only try working as a head coach but I'm also a father or brother to them. That's very important.
INJURY! Alberto Noguera is struggling right now. He's moved to the sidelines on the right flank. Looks like a muscle pull. He's fine to continue. Goa manager Juan Ferrando looks a worried man in the dugout.
