Indian international Gurpreet Singh Sandhu made his league debut for Stabæk Fotball in a Norwegian Tippeligaen match against IK Start on Sunday, May 29 and he created history by becoming the first professional footballer born in India to play in a Top Tier league match in Europe.
The 24 year old Mohali-born goalkeeper kept a clean sheet in Stabæk’s important 5-0 away win at the Sparebanken Sør Arena. Ohi Omoijuanfo (33′), Giorgi Gorozia (41′), Moussa Njie (78′, 89′) and Birger Meling (87′) scored the goals for Stabæk.
Stabæk Fotball is currently placed 15th in the Norwegian Tippeligaen as the club try to avoid relegation following a weak start to their 2016 league campaign.
