5 Players to watch out for in Indian Arrows vs Chennai City FC tie
The Hero I-League campaign for the Indian Arrows starts on November 29 when the young colts face Chennai City FC and square off against some of the best players in the domestic league structure.
LNTUP predicts 5 players to watch out in Indian Arrows vs Chennai City FC tie:
- Jeakson Singh (Indian Arrows)– Hailing from Manipur but fluent in Punjabi, Jeakson Singh created history when he scored India’s first goal in the FIFA Under-17 World Cup. Jeakson is a defensive midfielder by position and his early introduction to the sport came from his father who was a coach. It was his elder brother who recommended the youngster towards the direction of the CFA due to its high-level coaching. His ball holding play and passing skills has put him in this list.
2. Dharmaraj Ravanan (Chennai City FC)- The thirty year old stopper from Tiruchirappalli is a tough customer to deal with. Already having played for Indian football giants like Dempo SC, Mohun Bagan AC, Mahindra United, Churchill Brothers and Pune City FC, he is now on loan to Chennai City FC from the ISL side. He will captain the I-League side this season and will bring in loads of experience into the game. His sensational style of play and clinical no-nonsense defending makes him a complete defender. He can bring difference to the game.
3. Dheeraj Singh (Indian Arrows)- This shot stopper was one of the best keepers in business in the FIFA U-17 World Cup 2017. Although clubs like VFL Wolfsburg and Motherwell were interested in him, he did not break his contract with AIFF and will play under the bars for Indian Arrows. This keeper has the power to change the game. He stands as a mountain behind the defense and in front of the goal. He has proven his class in the World Cup and the AFC U-19 Asian Qualifiers earlier this season.
4. Sanjeev Stalin (Indian Arrows) – Born in January 2001, Stalin was one amongst 21 gems under Luis Norton’s tutelage in the final Indian U17 team slated to participate in the first ever age-group football World Cup to be hosted in the subcontinent. He provided the assist for the first ever goal for India in any FIFA event. His long balls and passing skills makes him a man to watch out for.
5. Venyamin Schumeiko (Chennai City FC)- The centre back is twenty eight years old and a man from the Soviet Union. He signed for his first ever club in 2011 for FC Abdysh-Ata Kant, a Kyrgyz side and stayed with them until the end of 2016-17 season, before signing for CCFC. He scored 37 goals for his previous side in 84 appearances. His clinical defending will be something to watch out for!
