East Bengal has confirmed their third foreigner for CFL. As per news another Trinidadian World Cupper would be gracing the Red and Gold jersey for this season. He will be the second Caribbean in the team alongside Willis Deon Plaza.



Carlisle Deon Mitchell who has represented Trinidad & Tobago in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, stand at 6 foot three inches tall and plays in central defence. He has represented the Caribbean Island nation in 39 matches. His latest match for the national team was against Honduras in a World Cup qualifying match a few months back. He is good in the air with his huge frame and adapt at scoring from set-pieces. He also claims to have faced Messi in a match for the national team. 



Mitchell was contacted through Plaza and after watching his video and CV, new Coach Khalid Jamil approved him as the third foreigner. His CV is impressive and looks to be in good shape. With the addition of the newest recruit from the Caribbean Islands, East Bengal has certainly been further strengthened for the CFL and looks to be a formidable team on paper.



The Red and Gold’s have already bolstered their team with quality Indian recruits in the form of Salam Ranjan Singh, Gilbert Fernandez and Surabuddin Mullick. They have also retained the services of Arnab Mondal a pillar of strength in deep defence and one of the best centre backs in the country. 



They have also graduated several of their Under 18 players who have caught the eye in the Under 18 I League last season into the senior team. So as every season the East Bengal fans would be hoping for an encore in the local CFL and also expect under the tutelage of last season’s I League winning coach Khalid Jamil they would also triumph in the I-League.
