Round 5 of the ‘Goan Football League’ (GFL) 7-aside football league had some exciting matches played at Daiya Grounds.

Ajay Satarkar of Holy Spirit, Margao was awarded ‘Man of the Match’ for the second consecutive Friday.

Melvin Fernandes of Capxem Boys, Mairon Fernandes of St. Christopher FC and Jayden Luke of Amigos de Jardine were pick of the scorers on yet another hot day in Kuwait.

Melvin dazzled for his team while scoring an impressive hat-trick against Navelim Stars, while Mairon and Jayden Luke scored two goals each for their teams.

One of the real stars of the day was CRC Chinchinim goalkeeper Anthony Fernandes.

The experienced goalkeeper has been playing in Kuwait for over 2 decades now. Last year he suffered a fracture to his arm and had to be operated. The warrior was at his best, guarding the goal yet again. Although Chinchinim lost, Anthony made some notable saves.
