Goa Show Delhi the Value of the Final Ball: Delhi Dynamos FC 1 – 5 FC Goa Review

Cutting Edge Proves To Be the Difference

There was only one way that Delhi Dynamos FC was going to win against FC Goa and that was a smash and grab. This meant that Delhi had to score first and then shut up shop.

It was a slaughter. It was an exhibition of excellent attacking football. It was Goa’s challenge to the rest of the league. Now, if they can only stop the Lobera – Kattimani Bromance.
