2. Brandon Fernandes
Brandon Fernandes moved to FC Goa in 2017. Ever since he joined the club, the Goan has been a complete force of nature both in the ISL and in Asia, becoming the beating heart of FC Goa’s midfield. Brandon has been one of the positives for FC Goa from the AFC Champions League campaign. With two assists from 6 games, Brandon has been one of the instrumental players for FC Goa in the Asian campaign. Brandon has always been a classy playmaker and remains so, but he has added a goal contributing element to his game and it has taken him to new heights in recent months.
1. Dheeraj Singh
Dheeraj Singh made the most saves as a goalkeeper in the AFC Champions League group stages. Dheeraj is, of course, a gifted shot-stopper, but he’s also a great organizer and an inspirational presence behind that Gaur’s backline. Good with his feet and seeming to be constantly oozing with confidence, goalkeepers like Dheeraj are a rare breed. However, his omission from FC Goa’s squad in the match against Persepolis might have raised a few eyebrows regarding gaffer Juan Ferrando’s decision but Dheeraj Singh was the one to watch out for in FC Goa’s all other matches in the AFC Champions League group stages. His key-saves were crucial in FC Goa’s famous draws against clubs like Al Wahda and Al Rayyan.
Dheeraj is the best goalkeeper for FC Goa right now – and might just stay there for a long while.
