Indian Super League side FC Goa will aim to become the first team from the ISL to win the prestigious Durand Cup 2021. Coach Juan Ferrando and the Gaurs mean business and they have selected a strong squad to challenge for the 133-year-old Durand Cup.

They will come up against Jamshedpur FC and Sudeva FC in Group B. Jamshedpur FC defeated Sudeva FC 1-0 in the Group B opener.

Leading the charge will be their talismanic captain Edu Bedia. The captain spoke about the need to win the tournament and get the season off to a strong start.

โ€œAt this moment, I believe we are one of the best teams in the country. This year we want to win all the trophies," Bedia said in a pre-tournament press conference.

FC Goa will have four foreigners for the Durand Cup, as well as a bunch of hungry young players eager to impress the gaffer in pre-season. On paper, the Gaurs are favourites to win the Durand Cup if they field their first-choice line-up. Coach Ferrando though, might want to use the tournament to try out all possible permutations and combinations prior to the start of the ISL season.
