Lalchungnunga, who has been nicknamed “Mizoram has become a hot-bed for young and upcoming talents for Indian Football. Hence, it perhaps comes as no surprise that the latest young sensation in Indian football, 15-year-old Lalchungnunga Chhangte has been the latest gem unearthed from the northeastern state. But this youngster is not just another extraordinary talent.

At the tender age of 15, he has already been selected to train at the Bundesliga in Germany for a period of 6 years. Lalchungnunga, who has been nicknamed “the Mizo Messi” by the locals has been scouted to train in Germany from a Tata Football Academy as part of a special MoU between the academy and the Mizoram government.

The youngster was one of 8 siblings born to a daily wage worker and his seemingly indomitable spirit has led him over the family’s poverty in search of his dreams. His success comes as big news to his family, especially his father who could never envisage his son become a famous footballer someday.

Mizoram has produced a rich array of talents for Indian football down the years and the likes of striker Jeje Lalpekhlua, midfielder Lalrindika Ralte all hail from the princely northeaster-state. Indeed young Lalchungnunga will want to follow in the footsteps and perhaps even outshine the prowess of his illustrious predecessors.

With proper training in Germany, it might not be a far-fetched dream anymore and Indian football may not be too far away from getting its first global footballing superstar.” by the locals has been scouted to train in Germany
