Udaipur : Zinc Football Academy captain Mohammed Adnan, with some stellar performances at last year’s Under-17 Subroto Cup International Football Tournament, has earned the attention of the National Subroto Committee.
Adnan led from the front against heavyweights like Goa, Tamil Nadu, Chandigarh and previous year’s runners up Afghanistan to set up a memorable journey for the Hindustan Zinc-owned team.
A moment of pride and honour for the state of Rajasthan as the Subroto Committee, after witnessing Adnan’s influential performances throughout the tournament, has handed him the prestigious spot in the TOP 25 future players of the country.
