He represented India at the U-19 and U-21 level earning the reputation of being a formidable midfielder with accurate passing. Now, at Dempo, he hopes to carry on the legacy of the club’s free-flowing game.

TheHardTackle’s correspondent Jonathan De Sousa met up with Dempo midfielder Godwin Diogo Franco to speak on his life as a footballer, his life at Dempo and his vision for Indian football.


What drove you to football and made you choose it over other sports?

Football was always there in my family. My father too was a very good player.

Did your father play at state level?

He got injured. He was a very good player in school but unfortunately he got injured which put an end to his dreams of playing competitive football. He played at the college level too but could not continue due to injuries. He was a very good player in school (St. Anthony’s High School, Monte de Guirim)

So, your parents played a big role in you becoming a footballer?

Yes, they were instrumental in me becoming a footballer. It was there genetically in me. Football ran through my family. As a kid, I grew up playing football. It was God’s gift to me. I’m grateful to God for giving me that talent.
