    Remember what Yakubu did with Salgaoncars last season. He too was discarded by many. Anyway this season i will be supporting sporting club de Goa.

    With the arrival of
    Australian player Antun Kovacic,
    Churchill Brothers have now
    completed their roster of four
    foreign players and are ready to
    take on any team in the country
    with the ultimate aim of
    conquering the I-League title and
    some major titles in the country’s
    football arena.
    It was informed that Kovacic has
    to his credit the distinction of
    playing for New Castel Jets in the
    A-League and also doing his stint
    in South Korea, besides playing
    for big clubs in Australia itself.
    This 1.94 meter tall Australian
    player, who prefers to play in
    the centre back, is likely to be the
    tallest footballer in the country.
    According to a source from
    Churchill Brothers, Kovacic has
    arrived in the state on Sunday
    morning and will be formally
    introduced to the press on
    Monday or Tuesday at the club
    house at Varca.
    With his arrival, Churchill
    Brothers have now four foreign
    stars in striker Henri Antchouet,
    ND Opara and Roberto Mendes
    alias Beto.
    “This is surely going to be a
    deadly combination,” the source
    said. He further said that the
    entire Churchill Brothers family is
    happy about the arrival of all the
    four foreign players who are
    class in themselves and have the
    capability to deliver goods

    Old warhorses are often good enough for Indian football, such is our standard. Other than Yakubu last season Igor Skyvryn top scored in NFl when he was 36, Cheema also played a big part in Bagan's first NFL when he was in mid-30s.

    New Official Website coming soon

    PANJIM: As part of inducting greater professionalism, Varca-based Churchill Bros Pvt Ltd have roped in Watson Fernandes from Mobor-Cavelossim in media and marketing department, stated CEO Macario Rodrigues.
    Watson, armed with a degree in pharmacy and MBA with marketing as specialization from Pune, has been passionate about football, being an avid Manchester United fan.

    “As I grew up, my passion for football grew stronger and I knew that I wanted to be an intrinsic part of it. I want to thank Churchill Alemao and the entire Churchill Brothers family for providing me with this opportunity,” he said. Asked about the reason for joining Churchill Brothers, Watson declared: “It’s because I have always been a big fan of the team. I also joined them because of their rich history, various achievements. Besides, they are moving in the right direction when it comes to Indian football.”

    “Churchill have a massive fan base not only in Goa but outside the State as well. We have various activities planned for engaging the fans and providing an incredible fan experience. We have already organised an event where 10 fans were sent for the Blackburn game in Pune and another one where we screened the Durand Cup final between Churchill and Prayag United live in Goa which had a good turnover in terms of people and enjoyment. Some more exciting events are in the pipeline as well,” pointed out Watson.

    “We have already made our presence felt on Facebook. We will shortly be launching our official website which will be user friendly and provide the fans with up-to-date information. We are looking forward to the coming season as we have collaborated with the GFA to organise our home games for the first time in Indian football.”

    wow that is good news for henri <!-- s:clap: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/eusa/clap.gif" alt=":clap:" title="Clap" /><!-- s:clap: --> ....but the club name it says is goa....may be that writing the club name as churchill brothers might have been a bit awkward for them....

    thats an amazing news! Shows how careful the people in Goa are while choosing a foreigner. They do not depend on gambling their chances unlike Bengal teams.
    Gabon are ranked 77 and they were 30 just 2.5 years back!! <!-- s:clap: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/eusa/clap.gif" alt=":clap:" title="Clap" /><!-- s:clap: -->
