Kochi is all set to stage the all goan final show of the ongoing Federation Cup.
Sporting Clube de Goa will look forward to being third time lucky as they have failed to lift the cup in the previous two occasions. Stumbled in the first match conceding 5 goals to I-League leaders Bengaluru FC, Sporting Clube de Goa later emerged as the leader from the group of death. Sporting had won the hard fought battle against their goan rival Dempo FC in the semis.
On the other hand the defending I-League champion who is presently struggling at the bottom of the table, proved their prowess as they kept on beating every team they faced in the Federation Cup. In the semi final churchill faced the mighty Mohun Bagan, the most successful club of Federation Cup. Churchill who was playing Federation Cup semifinal for the first time, shook the Bagan defense scoring two goals in the opening quarter of the match. And went on to win the match 2-1. With the likes of in form Lenny Rodrigues, Balwant Singh, Shabana and Wolfe, Churchill definitely will be the on paper favorites to lift the 35th Federation Cup.
