Trindade Goncalves ‘Gaur of the Match’

By Tricitynews Reporter
Chandigarh 05th October:- Trindade Goncalves is rated highly by his parent club CR Flamengo and the youngster certainly showed off his wide range of skills in FC Goa's loss to Northeast United FC. Trindade was a livewire in midfield and covered various positions on the pitch and made a nuisance of him for the opposition defenders. His set piece taking ability is also a bonus to the club as the youngster was put on corner duty.
Trindade found himself in attacking positions very often during the match and nearly found himself on the score sheet after unleashing a superb long drive that seemed destined for the top corner till Subrata Pal palmed it away. The youngster linked up well with attacking midfielder Joffre to fashion chances for his teammates as well as create chances for himself. He seems to be an important cog in the wheel and will be instrumental in Goa's chances for the upcoming season.
