Tuboi - The Goan assassinator
A bicycle kick and a solo goal were enough to send the Goan big guns Dempo SC and Churchill Brothers SC packing from Guwahati from the 31st Federation Cup.
Both the goals came from the foot of a small man who is now the talk of the Northeast and he is the young striker Seikhohao Tuboi.
Hailing from Manipur the 21 year old is now an integral part of Lajong FC. It was his spectacular bicycle kick that gave the club its first even win in the Federation Cup and when Churchill Brothers were knocked out of the semifinals there was no difference.
Lajong will now face East Bengal in the finals of the Federation Cup today (Sunday) and the striker is excited about it. "It will be a big scenario, a big match and a lot of expectations but we have nothing to lose," he said to IndianFootball.Com.
He is hopeful the local people will come out in large numbers to support the club in the final." Playing in front of home crowd is always special and hopefully we will see a lot of supporters coming in and even I want to win so that we can give a new year gift to the people," he added.
The club coach Stanley Rozario speaks very highly about the boy and admits the Manipuri has talent." He is really a talented player and the goals he scored in the tournament were a proof of that and coming from an Army club he has that fighting spirit," he said.
Tuboi had earlier represented Manipur in the 2006 Santosh Trophy held in Haryana and was a key member of Army XI. He is thankful to Shillong Lajong who gave him an opportunity to showcase his talent on the bigger stage of Indian football.
