With less than a month to go before the 7th Season of the Hero ISL kicks off behind closed doors in Goa, Jamshedpur FC introduces their final squad for the new season starting 20th November 2020. The squad consists of 24 players – seven foreign and 17 Indian players.
After a tough 2019-20 season, the club’s sole focus will be to qualify for the play-offs more than ever and the selection committee has left no stone unturned to make the most of the transfer window and bolster the team with some jaw-dropping additions; it has certainly created quite the buzz in the world of Indian football.
The club made 12 new signings including the 2019-20 Golden Boot winner Nerijus Valskis, former Motherwell F.C. player, Peter Hartley and Australian national, Nicholas Fitzgerald, along with some solid Indian talents like Jackichand Singh, Pawan Kumar and more.
