The nippy winger learnt the tricks of his trade in Bogmalo, near the tourist hotspot in South Goa. His speed, trickery and intelligent movement made him a regular in the Indian team from 2011 till 2015. His only international goal came in a 3-2 defeat to Palestine in 2014. Fernandes made his presence felt in his 11 appearances for the Delhi Dynamos in Hero ISL 2014 by providing three assists from the flanks. However, he couldn’t really repeat his feat from the first season as he was deployed in just five matches during Hero ISL 2015. His form further dipped in Hero ISL 2016 as he started in just one game, besides three appearances as a substitute for FC Pune City. However, he was a livewire for Chennaiyin FC in 2017-18, featuring in 17 games and also scoring once.
