Portuguese club signs 17 years old Indian Defender


Through a Facebook post  Third division Portuguese side Sociedade União 1º Dezembro confirms the signing of talented 17 year old talented defender Amarjeet Mishra.

Hailing from Balrampur, UP, Amarjeet Mishra is yet another product of Minerva FC. The U17 player managed to attract attention of the club when he visited Portugal with team India earlier this year. India was in Portugal for six weeks. Although Amarjeet was not in the Indian squad for the U17 World Cup, he participated in many practice matches to help the U17 squad prepare.

Amarjeet has already joined the club in Portugal on 1st of October and according to sources he is enjoying every moment there. The youngster, who is capable of playing both as Left Back and Right Back is expected to develop his full potential under the guidance of Sociedade União 1º Dezembro’s U19 coach Francisco Guimaraes.  He will play for the U19 team initially before joining the main side.

This is a great news for Indian young Footballer and fans. We will hope that this move opens up door for more Footballer in Portugal and Amar exploits all the facility there and strengthens Indian U19 side later.
