Gourav Mukhi has dribbled his way out of the narrow alleys of Dhatkidih Harijan Bustee, a crowded slum in the steel city, to the famed portals of Jamshedpur FC.
Gourav, who was a part of JFC Reserves outfit in I League second division last season, was selected for the senior side for his brilliance as a forward.
Currently in Madrid, Spain, with the JFC team for pre-season training, Gourav scored two goals in as many minutes on Saturday's match against football club Mostoles Balompie. JFC won 3-0 in the match where Gourav was the star.
