Reading FC would have made millions and won titles, only if they had read Brandon Fernandes well enough back in 2012 when they were willing to bid $1million for him, but, unfortunately the deal didn’t materialize and as we all know, things happen for a good reason. Brandon Fernandes stunned everyone in Cape Town, South Africa in the ASD youth academy and was also invited for trials at Leicester City FC. He currently plays for FC Goa in Indian Super league, and is having a fantastic second season. Brandon has a habit to dazzle fans with his creative style of play, whether it’s passing the ball or scoring from the wings. He is agile, intelligent and utilises his mind to the maximum in the field. Brandon definitely deserves to be in the Indian national team squad. His creative skills would make the team win some matches and impart some creativity. Brandon Fernandes is just not a footballer but an Artist as well.
We are glad to have the opportunity to chat with him.
