Northeast India’s first I-league club Shillong Lajong FC have signed up Trinidad and Tobago World Cupper Cornell Glen for the forthcoming 2013-14 season.
Glen is a regular striker for Trinidad and Tobago since 2002, with 66 international caps and 23 goals to his name. He was also in the squad for the 2006 FIFA World Cup, where he appeared in all three games and he is the fifth highest goalscorer in Trinidad & Tobago’s football history.
With this signing, Glen will be the first North America’s Major League Soccer (MLS) player to play for an Indian football club.
The star striker who has signed on a contract of one year with Lajong FC commented, “Shillong Lajong FC has always been one of the well known clubs from that part of the world (India) and to get an opportunity to play for them would be such an honour and something that would give me immense pride, more so if I could help the club do well in the league.”
Before his signing with Shillong Lajong, he was with Trinidad and Tobago’s top-level TT Pro League Club Caledonia AIA.
