Jamshedpur FC Team Profile
Last season, the Men of Steel finished sixth in the table. Greg Stewart, Jordan Murray, Ishan Pandita Eli Sabia and Pronay Halder have been recruited to improve the team.
One of the biggest strengths for Jamshedpur FC is their defense, and it can go a long way in helping them finish around the top of the table. They also have Nerijus Valsksis and Jordan Murray leading the attack, who have been tasked with scoring the much needed goals.
Under Owen Coyle, Jamshedpur look like underdogs that could surprise spectators as the season rolls on. They have a very balanced squad, and most importantly, have a solid defense.
But, the main problem in their lineup is a lack of a creative midfielder. But, since Coyle is an established tactician, he can easily turn to his wingers to take the creative burden alongside the box-to-box midfielders in the team.
