Players lived up to my expectations, says Maziya's Jesic
Kolkata: Head coach Miodrag Jesic applauded his Maziya Sports & Recreation side after they revived their AFC Cup™ 2022 hopes with a hard fought 1-0 win over Gokulam Kerala FC on Saturday.
An opening day 1-0 defeat to Bangladesh's Bashundhara Kings meant another loss on Saturday would have ended Maziya's hopes with a match to spare but the side from the Maldives rose to the occasion against a Gokulam Kerala team who had beaten fellow Indian side ATK Mohun Bagan 4-2 in their opener.
