The young Assam boy Holicharan Narzary has a lot to prove this season of Indian Super league (ISL) as he is the sole forward of indian descent in the team.
The twenty-one year old started his career with Pailan Arrows of the I-League in 2010, at the age of sixteen, racking up 33 appearances in 3 seasons with the Arrows, including 25 in the final season. Not only did he make 25 appearances, he was in the starting lineup for 23 of them, demonstrating the faith put in him from such a young age. Some of the highlights of his time at the Arrows include goals against Air India, Mumbai F.C and a couple against Dempo.
Narzary was a part of Colm Toal’s squad in the AFC U-19 Qualifiers in Tehran in November 2011.
Having racked up the appearances in the I-League, ISL and with the national team, Holicharan is a year wiser and a year older and slowly working his way towards becoming the finished article. Blessed with pace, trickery and the ability to beat the last defender, Holicharancertainly has talent in abundance to flourish in this season of ISL.
