FC Goa coach Juan Ferrando's Words After the Game

"For me today it was important to work in transition. There are a few things I am happy about in the first half but I think after the goal, the team worked well and found spaces.

"Now we are focussed at ATM Mohun Bagan. It is a very important game as they are compact and won the league last year. It is very hard to score against them and they are going to be different from Odisha.

"Now it is necessary to talk and prepare for the next game. There are a lot of details. Big problem for us is we have stretched to get points in the last games and it is important for us."

Igor Angulo's Words After the Match

"No (comparison with Coro), I always have pressure, I am a striker, I score goals. Happy with the three important points.

"It was a good goal, Romario gave me a very good pass and I scored a very important goal. It was important after we played very well and better than the other team.

"You have be focussed all the time, may be you don't touch the ball a lot but the ones you do have to be good. I didn't get too many touches in the first half as Odisha were compact but you have to make your touches count."

21:38 (IST)

Jorge Ortiz won the Hero of the Match for his brilliant all-round performance. If not for Arshdeep, he might have had a hat-trick tonight. He had 87 touches and four shots, three of which were on target.

Here is how brilliant Arshdeep was throughout the game. This was the big double save he made in the second half.

FULL TIME

What a performance from Odisha FC goalkeeper Arshdeep Singh! Jorge Ortiz has dejection on his face after full time whistle as he was denied time and again by Arshdeep in the goal. But Igor Angulo's clinical first half strike gives FC Goa a 1-0 win at the GMC Stadium in Bambolim. Odisha had a few changes to steal a draw but they failed to make them count and Goa walk away with the win.

HALF TIME

And that's the end of the first 45 minutes! FC Goa had majority of the possession and worked their way in the Odisha FC box while the Odisha defence held on and kept Igor Angulo at bay. But right before half time, it took one decisive ball from Romario to reach Angulo's feet and he makes it count. Odisha will be devastated about conceding at the time they did. FC Goa will be ecstatic having made all that possession count!

ISL 2020-21 Odisha FC vs FC Goa HIGHLIGHTS: Arshdeep Stars for Odisha but Angulo Goal Gives Goa the Win

ISL 2020-21 Odisha FC vs FC Goa HIGHLIGHTS: FC Goa beat Odisha FC with the one goal that Igor Angulo scored in the first half at the GMC Stadium in Bambolim, Goa in Match No.25 of the Indian Super League (ISL) on Saturday. Arshdeep Singh was heroic for Odisha FC with a number of fantastic saves that kept the scoreline to just 1-0 but Goa were able to get their second straight win. Angulo found the back of the net right before half time with a clinical finish to Romario's decisive ball from the left. Goa went into the break with a 1-0 advantage while Odisha FC must be devastated having conceded right at the end. FC Goa made a bright start against Odisha FC, pinning the Bhubaneswar-based side in their own half for most of the first 30 minutes. FC Goa made one change to their starting XI from their previous game with Alberto Noguera replacing Edu Bedia. For Odisha, Marcelinho started on the bench.

The Gaurs will have their sights set on a goal-fest. The likes of Igor Angulo, who is the current joint-top scorer this season, Jorge Ortiz Mendoza, Brandon Fernandes and Edu Bedia will have a big role to play as well. Meanwhile, Stuart Baxter's side has struggled at both ends of the pitch so far. Up front, their attack has appeared blunt, failing to score in three out of their four matches.

Juan Ferrando's side will also have their eyes set on their first clean sheet of the season. "When we are working in training, it's important to control a few details in transitions and keep improving. We are working a lot," said Ferrando. "I'm so happy about the defensive aspect because the team is good but sometimes, it's necessary to (keep) the intensity in defense. We need to be more aggressive," he added.

Odisha FC are also yet to register a clean sheet this season and have not been able to start games strongly, conceding five goals in the first half—most by a team this season. The problem for Baxter has also been watching his team being dominated by the opponents and Angulo will hope to add to his tally against a leaky Odisha defence.

Against FC Goa, the side that has the highest average possession by any team this season (58 percent), Baxter knows a big challenge lies ahead for his side. "The striker (Angulo) has been scoring goals and that's always a problem," the Englishman said. "The rest of the team, they have a set way of playing and they stick to it. It's important (that) you don't allow them to gain too much momentum. We have to be a constant threat and ought to be able to deal with them properly. They're one of the better teams and in that way, they deserve our respect," Baxter added.
