FC Bardez striker Myron Mendes spoke ahead of the game saying, “Winning and losing is a part of the game. it does not matter if we win or lose. What matters is how you bounce back from defeat. I think we have to work on our finishing. We have to finish every chance we get and I will surely work on that. We should not underestimate Churchill as they are also a good side, but, so are we. If we keep playing the Bardez way than we will surely win.”
Former India Goalkeeper Chandrakant Naik also said ,” I cannot predict how tomorrow’s game will go, but we will surely put in all our efforts so that the squad get the victory. Yes we lost the first match, but we have to learn from our loss and do better. The team will bounce back to winning ways as one loss does not define us. There is a lot in store for us. According to me rising up after you have fallen is the greatest victory.”
