Behind The Game: Catching up with Shawn Cardozo!
As we continue to grow to realize our dream of giving every child in Goa the opportunity to play and enjoy football, we bring more professional coaches into our program. We do this because we believe that while every child should have the opportunity to play, they also deserve the chance to train under the watchful eyes of licensed coaches so that can develop into quality players.
Over the last couple of months, we’ve brought in four young new coaches into our fold and Shawn Cardozo is the latest to join our grassroots program. We go Behind The Game with this talented young coach to know more about him and get his predictions for FC Goa this season!
