Apart from the Mumbai City FC keeper, Jeakson Singh and Raynier Fernandes also shared their thoughts on the game.
Mumbai City failed to register a double over Kerala Blasters this season, as the sides were forced to a draw on Thursday night. While there were good performances by the forwards on display, the defenders as well as goalkeepers ensured their respective teams could take at least a point home. Following the game, Amrinder Singh, Jeakson Singh and Raynier Fernandes shared some valuable insights in the mixed zone interactions.
Kerala Blasters youngster Jeakson Singh put in a solid performance in the defence and credited Eelco Schattorie for his performance as he said, “It was part of the plan to play behind when the attackers were moving forward and we should’ve won. But, I’m happy with the way I played.”
“We played the first 45 minutes with lots of energy. But, we became a bit tired in the last 10-15 minutes and we lost a bit of concentration as well,” the youngster added.
Mumbai City FC midfielder Raynier Fernandes lamented his team’s inability to get more from the game and expressed his displeasure as he went on to say, “We tried our best, but we are not happy with our performance. It was a must-win game for us.”
“We started a bit slowly and took some time, but we got back into the game. We missed a few chances and we will look to improve in the next game,” he added .
Mumbai City goalkeeper Amrinder Singh made his 50th appearance for the club on Thursday night and expressed his happiness on the achievement. “I feel very happy on the time I’ve spent here so far. The club has been great and the fans have always supported us through victories and defeats. I just do my job for the club and I’m happy with the work done,” he said.
“We played particularly well. We can’t change what has happened. But, we need to work on the mistakes we did and we need to perform well in the next two away games that we will play,” the 26-year-old concluded.
