 New Delhi: It is safe to say that on Sunday Lallianzuala Chhangte formally announced his arrival onto the Indian football scene.

Lallianzuala scored two brilliant goals against Nepal to propel India into the SAFF Cup semi-final.

After Nepal took the early lead, India hit back through Rowlin Borges and Sunil Chhetri.

Thereafter it was the Lallianzuala show, as the confident youngster scored a double.

His first goal came from a classic left-footed curler from the edge of the box, while he bagged his second with an intelligent header.

The 18-year-old will represent new team DSK Shivajians in the I-League in 2016.

From the evidence so far, it is fair to assume that Indian football has unearthed a potential superstar.
