Indian football latest news: Carlos Pena has played in the reserve sides for FC Barcelona
Carlos Pena has been playing football in Spain for more than a decade now, having started for his country at the youth level. Although he also won the U-19 UEFA European Championship and then went on to play at the youth academy of FC Barcelona, but never made it to the senior team as he stayed limited to the reserve teams, i.e. Barcelona B and Barcelona C.
After spending five years with the reserve sides, Pena moved out of the Blaugrana and established himself with the Spanish Segunda division club Albacete, and went on to make over one hundred appearances. The Spaniard left-back later played with more than a handful of second division sides, namely Recreativo, Real Valladolid, Oviedo, Getafe, and Lorca.
FC Goa have become one of the most promising teams in ISL football and it was evident when they made waves in Indian football news in the last season of ISL football after having finished third in the ISL 2018 rankings. Another factor that will make this development a significant one in Indian football latest news, is the fact that Carlos Pena’s arrival at FC Goa will mark the continuity of the norm of the ISL team, which has a history of bringing in talent from Spain, for example when they signed Lanzarote and Corominas in ISL 2018 season.
The top-tier of India football, i.e. the Indian Super League, often makes waves in the Indian football news for all sorts of reasons. While the ISL football is growing day by day, the major part of the change has to do with the meshing of the Indian football players with the overseas players, which enables an accelerated exchange of technical skills and experience. ISL team FC Goa, who finished up third in ISL 2018, are currently engaged in the strengthening of their squad ahead of the ISL 2018-19 season, and the latest addition to ‘the Gaurs’, as reported in ISL transfer news and Indian football latest news, is the 35-year-old Spaniard Carlos Pena.
