CK Vineeth joins Team India with a lot of self-confidence

CK Vineeth

Prayag United SC midfielder will be a happy man full of self-confidence when he joins the Indian national team today.

Vineeth has earned his first call-up to Wim Koevermans’ Indian squad for the upcoming friendly match against Palestine in his native state of Kerala. The match scheduled to take place at Kochi’s Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium on February 6 could see Vineeth making his debut in the all blue kit of Team India.

The Kannur-born footballer had an excellent season in the I-League for his club Prayag United so far and hopes are high to get a chance to earn his first senior international cap in front of the home crowd.

“I’m very happy as my dream to represent my country is finally coming true,” Vineeth told media representatives. “I’m from Kerala and getting the chance to play in Kochi is very special to me. I’m looking forward to play at home.”

The 24 year old has every reason to be happy and to join the India camp with a lot of self-confidence. Vineeth was able to impress in Prayag United’s 4-1 win against Air India at the Balewadi Stadium on Saturday. Vineeth scored three goals in the match and fans in Kerala are hoping to see a Keralite player in the Indian team after a long time.
