FC Goa tickets are available on www.bookmyshow.com

Q. FC Goa is on fourth position. What will be your next target?
A. Zico- I have been always saying to the team we have to go one step at a time. We have to make progress match after match. We have more matches coming home and away and we have to win and go one step up.

Q. In every game played, FC Goa has been dominating in the first half, and second half the opposition dominates. But this time the tam managed to keep the lead. How crucial was the second goal to seal the victory?
A. Zico- Even if the second goal was not scored, we would have won anyway. Everyone has their own way of playing. We had the opportunity to play well in the both halves and due to which we could score and win the game. In Pune, we had created many opportunities to score but didn’t score, but they created few opportunities, scored and won the game. Today they had opportunity to score and they didn’t score and we scored and won the game.

Q. Defence has always been a strong point of the team, but today it looked weak. Do you think that Jan Seda made the defence look better?
A. Gregory Arnolin- We have always been humble in our way of playing. We have eleven players who are playing on the pitch and more outside the pitch. I think everyone has to do their own work. I think it was a fair victory since everyone worked very hard for it.

Q. You have always had a main role in the defence, how does that feel? Also, you always create chances to score, how does it feel when you don’t score?
A. Gregory Arnolin- I play for the team and always work to help my team. My first role in the team is defence or else they won’t be able to score. It doesn’t matter who scored, everyone is happy with the victory.

Q. We saw a new partnership between Gregory and Bruno. Your thoughts on Bruno’s performance.
A. Zico- As the time goes we understand the players better. I know that Bruno’s original position is defence, so I could use him today. I spoke to him about the change and he said that he was ready to play in that position and we all saw how well he played.
