Former East Bengal Striker Mascarenhas Retires From Football

Former East Bengal striker Freddy Mascarenhas has decided to call it a day and has quit professional football at the age of 28.
Mascarenhas started his football at the Cuncolim Union under-15 team and progressed to play for the Salgaocar SC under-19 side.

Before long Mascarenhas made his way to the Salgaocar senior side and played for the Goan club for two seasons.

The Goan striker subsequently played for Churchill Brothers, East Bengal and Sporting Clube de Goa.

Mascarenhas made his debut for the Indian national team in 2006 and was part of the squad that was selected for the Vancouver trip.

The over six foot striker also played for Goa in the Santosh Trophy.

Mascarenhas, though, has now decided to quit professional football and move to the Caribbean island of Bermuda.
