When Eli Sabia was told by Jamshedpur FC officials that squad number 13 is available among many other numbers, the center-back was filled with joy. It was an automatic choice for him to select 13 for himself.
When asked on why he chose to select ‘13’, he said, “I have always preferred wearing number 13 in my career. I feel it brings me luck, my lucky number you can say. And it's never bad to have a little bit of luck on your side, isn't it?”
And we couldn’t agree more! In his previous clubs too, whenever available, Eli has chosen squad number 13. Thirteen clean sheets too maybe, Eli?
