“Football has been there in my life since I was in the third grade,” Fernandes stated in an interview with Goal. “I played at school level at Our Lady of Salvation in Dadar. My brother (Royston) who is six years elder than me was also a football player and when I got to the fifth grade, he played in the first team of Kenkre FC. Looking at his interest, I got encouraged to take the sport seriously.”

“I changed my school and went to Don Bosco, Matunga in the seventh grade because at Salvation the level [of football] was not as high as it was in Bosco’s. From there, everything went well and we won many championships at the school level. Then I went to MMK (Shrimati Mithibai Motiram Kundani) college in Bandra where I played hockey and football but my main choice was always football.
