FC Goa will start their seventh season in ISL and have made it to the finals on two separate occasions. Before the new campaign starts, the club announced a three-year strategic partnership with German giants RB Leipzig with the development of youth players being the primary focus of the association. The Gaurs last season became the first Indian team to qualify for the AFC Champions League group stage.
Speaking of Virat Kohli, following the conclusion of IPL 2020, the cricketer will now lead team India on a full-fledged series of Australia starting later this month. However, the 32-year-old will not be available for the entire tour as he will return back to India in the later stages to attend the birth of his first child.
