FC Bayern World Squad

MUNICH: Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich have called up Indian teenager Shubho Paul to their FC Bayern World Squad, the culmination of an online talent hunt to build a 15-man team of U19 prospects.

A total of 654 players - born in either 2003 or 2004 - from 64 nations applied to be part of the programme by submitting video clips to a coaching team comprising club legend Giovane Elber, former Bayern captain and FIFA World Cup winner Klaus Augenthaler and international FCB youth coach Christopher Loch.
