Panjim (Goa) [India], March 21 (ANI): FC Goa will begin their Super Cup campaign against two-time Indian Super League (ISL) champions ATK on April 3 at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar.

Having finished the ISL season in 9th place, ATK were forced to take on I-league side Chennai City FC in a qualifying battle and they promptly dispatched the South Indian to book their place in the main draw of the Super Cup against ISL semi-finalists FC Goa.

The Super Cup rules state that only six foreign players can be registered per team to participate in the tournament and as such, the Gaurs have left out Moroccan midfield dynamo Ahmed Jahouh and young striker Mark Sifneos from the squad.

ISL golden boot winner Ferran Corominas and attacking midfielders Hugo Boumous and Manuel Lanzarote will travel to Bhubaneswar with the squad along with Eduardo Bedia, Sergio Juste and Bruno Pinheiro.

The first round of the tournament will begin March 31 with reigning ISL champions Chennaiyin FC taking on Aizawl FC.

The semi-finals will be played on April 16 and 17 with the final due to be played on April 20.

FC Goa Squad: Naveen Kumar, Laxmikant Kattimani, Bruno Colaco, Seriton Fernandes, Amey Ranawade, Ali Mohammed, Bruno Pinheiro, Sergio 'Chechi' Juste, Narayan Das, Edu Bedia, Pronay Halder, Manuel Lanzarote, Pratesh Shirodkar, Mandar Rao Dessai, Brandon Fernandes, Anthony D'Souza, Ferran Corominas, Manvir Singh, Liston Colaco, Yasir Mohammad, Jonathan Cardozo, Hugo Adnan Boumous, Chinglensana Singh Konsham.
