When you have Spanish forward under a Spanish coach and with more Spaniards in the midfield, you can just sit back and enjoy the magic. Ferran Corominas Telechea, Manuel Lanzarote and Eduardo Bedia Pelaez showed glimpses of that magic at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Chennai on Sunday afternoon and also helped FC Goa overcome a fighting Chennaiyin FC 3-2 in a thrilling encounter. It was also a special moment for Corominas who became the first goal scorer in ISL Season 4 after two draws in the first two days.

In a quick chat after the win, Corominas said that he was more happy with the win than his personal milestone. He was also all praise for his fellow Spaniard Lanzarote, who scored the second goal of the match and local boy Mandar Rao Desai for his clinical finish to put his team 3-0 ahead in the first 45 minutes.

Excerpts from the interview:

Q: How does it feel to become the first goal scorer of ISL Season 4?

A: I’m very happy to score the first goal of the season this year and get on the scoresheet but finally what matters is that the team played well and we have three points on the board.

Q: After two goalless draws in the first two days you opened the scoring and your team pumped in two more, what was the game plan when you took the field?

A: Well, we continued on from the same idea that we’ve been playing with for the past few months and followed our style of play of keeping possession and creating chances. For an away team, we created lots of chances and ended up scoring three.

Q: In the first two games it was seen that the foreign players and the Indian players were not gelling well, but that didn’t look like a problem with FC Goa, your comment.

A: I think fatigue was true for our game too. We are playing in humid conditions and with a lot of heat so it’s only normal that players take on fatigue. The quality of play in the second half wasn’t as high as a result. But the efforts and hard work that we had put during our practice sessions gave us the win.

Q: A word on Manuel Bruno’s goal, wasn’t that a beauty?

A: Lanza and Mandar’s goals were very important as they gave us the tranquility of a three goal lead. Lanza’s goal was one of real quality and Mandar’s was a great counter attack with a good finish.
