The Durand Cup saw a red-and-yellow defense with no understanding except for Spanish defender Ivan Gonzales. But today it was seen that Jerry, Ankit too have adapted themselves. Brazilian Alex Lima played intelligent football in midfield.
However, Jordan Doherty of Australia is going to be the nucleus of this red and yellow team. He maintains the perfect balance between defense and attack.
