FC Goa missing someone who can score: Zico
FC Goa’s manager Zico on Monday admitted his team lacks a potent striker, which is the reason for their three defeats in four games in the Indian Super League. Goa lost 0-2 to FC Pune City in their away game on Sunday. ‘The team is missing someone who can score a goal. Football is all scoring goals and we don’t have a guy who can score. On Monday, we had four chances to score, but there was no one to score,’ the Brazilian legend lamented at the post-match press conference.

Asked about if Robert Pires’s absence due to suspension made the difference, Zico said, ‘We shouldn’t be worried about who is there and who is not there on field. With him (Pires) on the field, we lost two matches and drew one, so I don?t how to answer that question of yours.’ What was the difference between his team and Pune, pat came the reply, ‘Well, when we were playing well, we didn’t score and they scored.’

On was it a case of defensive lapse, he said, ’It wasn’t a defensive lapse. It was mistake that happens in football. At moments where we couldn’t do anything they scored. It is normal thing to happen in football. So we need someone to score a goal.’ Zico also said he was impressed with the performance of Afghanistan’s national team captain Haroon Amiri.
