GOAAALLL!!! Equaliser! A similar kind of goal on the opposite side. Keenan Almeida's cross is directed at the back of Arindam Bhattacharya's nets by Boima Karpeh
This is what Churchill has been waiting for and probably might get his first win if they continue in this fashion.
Goal Abdelhamid Shabana
GOAAALLL!!! An opener in the very first move. Balwant Singh finds Abdelhamid Shabana on his left and the Egyptian midfielder finds the back of the net
Sporting Goa subs: Victorino, Muvin Borges, Rojen, Rovan, Velito Cruz, Sourav (gk), Joyner
Churchill subs: Thapa (gk), Balmuchu, Jaison, Anthony Pereira, Satish, Richard Costa, Balan
Sporting Clube de Goa XI: Ravi (gk), Mathew (c), Keenan, Gonzalo, Kalu, Garcia, Jovel, Shirodkar, Cajetan, Rowllin, Karpeh
Churchill Brothers XI: Al Sebai, Shahen, Denzil, Ravanan (c), Shabana, Balwant, Thangjam, Sawant, Lenny, Yumnam, Arindam (gk)
Here are the line-ups
I am Anselm Noronha, reporting Live from Mapusa
Sporting Goa also played an away 0-0 draw to Bengaluru FC and for now it is understood that Flaming Oranje striker Dawson Fernandes is still nursing an injury and Boima Karpeh would hope to find his scoring boots. Midfielders Stephene Barreto, Joseph Pereira and Mackroy Peixoto are doubtful starters.
On the team news front, we know that Churchill will be without the services of midfielder Micky Fernandes who picked his fourth yellow card in the previous fixture againt Mohammedan Sporting which finished goalless
Sporting Clube de Goa have meanwhile been playing a good brand of possession based football game this season under Spanish coach Oscar Bruzon Barreras.
The Red Machines have parted ways with their foreign players and have roped in Syrian duo of Yaser Shahen (striker), Naser Al Sebai (defender) and a Egyptian midfielder Abdelhamid Shabana. They will pin their hopes on the new Asian signings to start delivering good performances right from the onset as the club is in dire state.
Churchill Brothers are still looking for that elusive win as the reigning champions find themselves at the bottom of the table
Thursday treats us with a Goan derby as Churchill take on Sporting Goa at the Duler Stadium, Goa. Welcome to Goal's Live text commentary
