Anwar Ali

Coming from Punjab, the young Centre Back started his career with Minerva Punjab and then went on to play for the India U17 team in the 2017 FIFA U17 World Cup. After good performances, the youngster was loaned to Indian Arrows for the 2017/18 season before signing with Mumbai City FC. Another loan to the Indian Arrows followed the following season.

Ali was barred from playing competitive football by the AIFF in 2019 after he was diagnosed with a rare heart condition called Apical Hypercardiomyopathy (HCM). The defender played his first game after a break of over a year for Techtro Swades United before moving on to Delhi FC via Minerva Academy.

The youngster starred for Delhi FC in the Durand Cup and the I-League Qualifiers in 2021 and has now signed an initial one-and-a-half-year contract with the Gaurs and will be looking to make his debut for FC Goa in the 2021/22 season of the Indian Super League.
