WATCH: Former Phoenix striker Roy Krishna still breaking records at 36

Former Wellington Phoenix striker Roy Krishna has broken a record for his club’s most goals scored in a single season of the Indian Super League.

Krishna (36) has scored 13 goals for Odisha FC so far this season, and is the co-leader with Kerala Blasters striker Dimitrios Diamantakos in the race for the ISL Golden Boot

The Fiji national team captain scored his latest goal in the first leg of Odisha FC’s semi-final against his former club Mohun Bagan on April 24, 2024 (NZT).

It was Krishna’s 50th goal in the Super League, and makes him the third-highest goalscorer in the competition’s history, behind Bartholomew Ogbeche (61) and Sunil Chhetri (53).

The teams meet in the second leg of their play-off on Sunday April 28 (NZT).

Krishna’s 13-goal season surpasses Odisha’s previous record for a single season, set by Brazilian Diego Mauricio who scored a dozen in both the 2020-21 and 2022-23 seasons.

Krishna has had a successful career that’s taken him from Fiji club Labasa in 2006 to become one of Oceania’s most prolific goalscorers.

After five years with Waitakere United — where he scored 65 goals in 75 appearances — he joined Auckland City and soon won a professional contract with the Phoenix.

Considered the best Fijian footballer ever, Krishna’s place in the game’s history is assured. He was named an Oceania Football Confederation ambassador in 2022, and he’ll remain a fans’ favourite at the Phoenix, for whom he scored 65 goals in 122 appearances.
