Odafa Okolie joins practice4-Aug, 2012
Odafa Okolie joined practice session of McDowell Mohun Bagan for the first time this season held in club ground.
Tomorrow, McDowell Mohun Bagan will play a practice match against BNR to be held in Salt Lake Stadium at 3 p.m.
Coach Santosh Kashyap said Odafa will take a week to tune up his body. He also said, "I will go slow with him and don't want to rush with him. He wanted to play today, so I gave him around 15 minutes time."
During the practice, Odafa took a lot of good shots at the goal. Shilton made a number of good saves but ultimately Odafa managed to score few goals during set-piece movement practice.
Stanley and Tolgay also looked in great touch with Stanley scoring 3 goals in today's training session. Stanley also sent few good through passes towards Tolgay and the former also earned a penalty which was converted by Tolgay.
After today's practice session, Odafa said, "This year we have a good balanced team with a lot of young talented players. I think Mohun Bagan will win trophies this year."
