Mahmoud Al-Amna-The Syrian International will play a vital role in EB’s midfield.Last year he won the I-league for Aizawl.He has already scored 4 goals in 9 games for EB.With his creativity he will be the “Engineer” of Indian Midfield.
Katsumi Yusa-If you have followed I-league for the last few seasons then you can’t forget Katsumi’s contribution for MB.But this time he will don the jersey of the rival club.East Bengal’s I-league journey will largely depend upon Katsumi-Al Amna midfield duo.
Surabuddin Mallick-This guy will be the trump card of EB.He mostly comes on as a substitute and suprises everyone with his goal-poaching attitude.He played a crucial role for EB in the CFL and also scored against ISL side Jamshedpur FC.
David Lalrinmuana- Former EB player David is a dead ball specialist.Most of Aizawl’s attack will depend on his passes.He is also a free-kick specialist and performed very well in the Mizoram Premier League
Masih Saighani-The Afghan international will be the Wall of Aizawl’s defense.He has a rich experience in Germany and also has a physical advantage. He is deadly in set pieces and has already scored many goals in the Mizoram Premier League.
