While in all the other sports, teams from the Capital aren’t known for driving to success in the country, but the advent of the soccer club Delhi Dynamos in the Indian Super League, Delhi is somewhat saved from that shadow. Delhi Dynamos have registered Top-4 finishes in the past two seasons successively and are up for the challenge once again with a revamped side. Club Director Rohan Sharma believes that by roping in veteran Spanish coach Miguel Angel Portugal in the team will infuse a lot of positivity in the squad. 


The national capital’s franchise had an extensive preseason, where they played friendly matches against the likes of Delhi United FC, Real Kashmir FC, Minerva Punjab and others in Spain and Qatar. “Our team’s biggest strength lies in the midfield and going forward. Matias Mirabaje is a very good passer and always has time on the ball,” said team’s goalkeeper Albino Gomes, as per CNN news 18. Shakti Chauhan, the assistant coach of the team, said, the squad’s playing style has changed compared to the previous three seasons. “We want to play with the ball and then we have our plans of how to catch the opponent by surprise, ” Chauhan added.
