Arnab Mondal, who plays at centre back for East Bengal, has been chosen to lead India by coach Stephen Constantine against Oman and Guam in the upcoming World Cup 2018 Qualifiers.
Jubilant over the news, Mondal described it as a rare honour and thanked Coach Constatine for it.
He also said the things would remain unchanged within the team as everyone was a captain in their own right – right from the coach to the other players, the support staff.
He insisted that it was not about an individual, rather it was about the team.
India would be taking on Oman on June 11 in Bengaluru.
