It was an evening of World Cuppers as Trezeguet's 81st minute strike was preceded by Greece World Cupper Kostas Katsouranis' volley in the 41st minute which gave the home team the lead at the Balewadi Stadium yesterday.
Goa's struggles continue
For Goa and high-profile manager Zico, things are getting from bad to worse as they've now lost three out of four matches and are languishing at the bottom of the table. FC Pune City with this win moved up to fifth place in the table.

Far from his best at 37, Trezeguet didn't do much during the 90 minutes, but when rival defender Gregory Arnolin tried a backpass to Goa custodian Laxmikant Kattimani, Trezeguet showed just how he's scored 138 goals for Juventus during his best days at Turin.
The Frenchman latched onto the ball and with Kattimani trying to narrow the angle, immaculately placed it past the surging goalie to make it 2-0 much to the delight of the team's co-owner Hrithik Roshan, who cheered on from the stands.
