Kolkata giants East Bengal are all set to renew their love affair with the Hero I-League as they get ready to face NEROCA FC at Imphal’s Khuman Lumpak stadium on October 27, 2018.

Spanish coach, Alejandro Menendez Garcia and had a very successful pre-season under him in Malaysia where they won three matches and drew one. Coach Garcia has also had immense success in Thailand and China and would be looking to help the Red & Golds from Kolkata break their Hero I-League jinx.

He has a highly talented squad of players at his disposal too to help them achieve that dream. In goal, coach Garcia has options between Rakshit Dagar, Mirshad and Ubaid C.K., all of whom have had their days under the bar. Then there is the trio of Bali Gagandeep (forward), Senegalese Kassim Aidara (midfield) and Kamalpreet (defender) secured from defending champions Minerva Punjab FC. The two Ralte’s Laldanmawia and Lalrindika will look to martial the midfield along with Aidara and local boy Yami Longwah.

However, the two trump cards up coach Garcia’s sleeve will undoubtedly be Mexican striker Enrique Esqueda and Costa Rican defender Johnny Acosta. While Acosta, who played all three group matches for his country in this year’s FIFA World Cup Finals, will be only the second footballer in India currently to have played in a senior FIFA World Cup, Mexican Esqueda’s credentials seem even more impressive.

The striker has not only played in the Copa America for his country but has the distinction ofscoring goals against clubs like Real Madrid, AC Milan and Manchester City in competitive international club football. For QEB to fulfill their I-League dreams they will surely have to score many goals and Esqueda might just be the answer to that problem.

EB’s coach Alejandro Garcia also exuded confidence in the pre-match presser saying, “We are very confident before tomorrow’s match. We know that we can win the match. This is a very difficult opening but we hope to get three points.” He also disclosed that Syrian midfield general Mahmoud Al-Amna had not travelled to Imphal due to personal reasons.

Match two of the season between Neroca FC & Quess East Bengal is scheduled at 2 PM on October 27, 2018 and it will be telecast LIVE & Exclusive on Star Sports 3, HotStar and Jio TV.
