Phrangki Buam : Shillong Lajong FC 》FC GOA
Phrangki Buam made it to the headlines yet again as he signed for FC Goa ahead of the Indian Super League season 7. The 19 year old hailing from Jaintia Hills, Meghalaya took the I league by storm with his goalscoring exploits. Phrangki is famous for bagging awards and accolades wherever he plays.
Having won the Shillong Premier League and the Meghalaya State League with Shillong Lajong FC in 2019, Phrangki even concluded the latter as the highest goalscorer with 14 of his shots finding the back of the net. The young attacking midfielder has an obsession for scoring goals and has been an absolute showstopper for the past couple of seasons being named as the only teenager to have scored 6 goals in the I league 2018-19 and as the highest goalscorer for his home club for the calendar season.
Phrangki graduated from the Royal Wahingdoh youth setup and it took him no time to grab the spotlight as he was selected for the Shillong Lajong outfit which made him ply his trade in the I league. The young star scored 8 goals in his cumulative 28 appearances across the I league and 2nd Division playing for Shillong Lajong and Bengaluru United making him undoubtedly one of the best players in his age category.
Brilliant awareness on the ball, having a good nose for poaching goals, vision to pick up the empty pockets on the pitch and a superb set piece taking ability attributes the newest Gaur. Phrangki can eye for the number 10 spot which is his predominant position while he can also expect a more wide on the wings posting in coach Juan Ferrando’s Gaur army.
With FCG’s the then mainstay CAM Hugo Boumous reportedly taking a leave from the club, this might be a humongous opportunity for the young Phrangki Buam. He also brings onto the table a very solid deputy for Brandon Fernandes while bending in those set pieces for the defending league shield winners. Albeit Phrangki has to face a more experienced and rigged in-house competition in the form of his Spanish counterpart Alberto Noguera, the teenager will definitely keep his head down and work his socks off to earn his spot in FC Goa’s first team lineup to get the unmatched exposure of Indian Top Tier league as well as the Continental extravaganza.
