Rajasthan United FC’s Niraj Kumar seals permanent move to Odisha FC!

Odisha FC have announce the signing of young goalkeeper Niraj Kumar from Rajasthan United FC for an undisclosed fee. The 19-year-old will join Odisha FC on a three-year deal.

Niraj Kumar impressed the India U-16 set-up.

He has also played for Ozone FC in the Second Division League.

Niraj made headlines when he was a crucial member of the Indian National Team’s junior men’s squad at the mere age of 16. The shot-stopper had a brilliant individual campaign with impressive performances against Iran and South Korea at the AFC U-16 Championship in Malaysia.

Of note the young goalkeeper’s efforts versus an Iranian team that India had not registered a point against in 33 years. Niraj made some incredible saves and saved a crucial penalty in a 0-0 draw. The team eventually went 337 minutes without conceding a goal in the tournament.
