Hope FC GOa is banned atleast for next 2-3 yrs and GOA state is boycotted both by FIFA, AIFF and ISL atleast for next 3 - 5 yrs so the international players and coaches are assured of both the safety, sports spirit and attitude from the Indian counterpart.

Jaret, if your son shouts it cheating, then it doesnt mean the match was fixed.

Entire India knows how the goal was scored in the last minute.

If FC Goa had to win, you wouldnt be saying it was fixed.

And as far as the team owners are concerned, you dont worry about them. They have enough money looting Goa by illegal mining..

It is no surprise that the AIFF is all out to defend its match fixing. It would not need a specialist or any intelligence agency to find out that the outcome of the match was pre decided, in other words that the match was fixed. I have always enjoyed a fair game whether the team i support wins or loses, however, in my opinion, even a school going lad would have referred the match a 1000 times better than the Japanese yen(do). My 10 yr old son watching the match was shouting "papa this is cheating, this is cheating", what more could anyone else say about the referring in the match. Secondly for Mr. ### the match commissioner to mention in his report about the foul language used, was he near the referee or for the japanese referee to claim that foul language was used, does he understand Konkanni or Hindi other than Japanese? These are baseless statements.

Taking this as a cue, in short, it would be better for FC Goa to withdraw from the ISL, to salvage the dignity of Mr. Salgaocar, whose family along with the Dempos have been associated with the game of football for decades, unless the owners themselves feel they will suffer huge loses if they withdraw.
