Trezeguet fires as Pune beat Goa 2-0

A striker always remains a striker is what David Trezeguet showed when he rolled back all those years with an opportunistic strike to help FC Pune City register their maiden win beating FC Goa by 2-0 in the Indian Super League on Sunday.

It was an evening of World Cuppers as Trezeguet’s 81st minute strike was preceded by Greece
World Cupper Kostas Katsouranis’ side volley in the 41st minute which gave the home team lead.

For Goa and their high-profile manager Zico, things seemed to be getting from bad to worse as they have now lost three out of their four matches and are languishing at the bottom of the table. FC Pune City with this win moved upto fifth place in the table. Far from his best at 37, Trezeguet didn’t do much during the entire duration of 90 minutes but when rival defender Gregory Arnolin tried a backpass for Goa custodian Laxmikant Kattimani, Trezeguet showed why he was able to score 138 goals for Juventus during his best days at Turin.

The Frenchman latched onto the ball and with Kattimani trying to narrow the angle placed it past the surging goalie to make it 2-0. The first goal came against the run of play as Katsouranis scored from dead ball situation after Pune were awarded a corner in the 41st minute.
