India’s star striker Sunil Chhetri has been named among the Indian probables for the Nehru Cup which is going to start at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, New Delhi, from 22 August 2012. India has won the tournament two times and is among the favourites to win the trophy.
Among the 27 probables, only Chhetri hasn’t joined the preparation camp at Bangalore. ‘I’m happy that we got confirmation from his club on his release and that leaves us enough time to work with the player to prepare ourselves for
the Nehru Cup,’ said newly appointed coach Wim Koevermans.
Here is the list of the 27 probables for the Nehru Cup:
Goal keepers: Subrata Pal, Subhasish Roychowdhury, Karanjeet Singh.
Defenders: Nirmal Chhetri, Denzil Franco, Gourmangi Singh, Gurwinder Singh, Raju Gaikwad, Khelemba Meitei, Syed Rahim Nabi, Mohan Raj.
Midfielders: Mehtab Hossain, Rocus Lamare, Milan Singh, Baldeep Singh, Jewel Raja, Francis Fernandes, Alwyn George, Anthony Pereira, Gilbert Oliviera, Sanju Pradhan, Clifford Miranda, Joaquim Abranches.
Forwards: Robin Singh, Sunil Chhetri, Manandeep Singh, Jeje Lalpekhlua.
