East Bengal name defender Robert in squad for I-League away games
Struggling Kolkata giants East Bengal have named defender Robert Lalthalmuana in its squad for their I-League away matches in Pune against Bharat FC on April 8 (Wednesday) and Pune FC on April 11 (Saturday). Lalthalmuana has recovered from a leg injury that kept him out of his team’s previous matches. Dutch Coach Eelco Schattorie will be hoping for a turnaround after recent losses against league leaders Mohun Bagan AC and third-placed Royal Wahingdoh FC. The twin losses condemned the three-time champions to a lowly sixth spot in the standings with 13 points from 10 matches. The team will be missing goalkeeper Subhasish Roy Chowdhury for the remainder of the season due to a knee injury.
